About Swift Memorial UMC

We believe in Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors

A brief history
Originally, the church started through the donation of a plot of land from Nathaniel Swift in 1828. The cornerstone of the stone church was laid on July 19, 1910 and was dedicated on March 26, 1911. Our church has many doors through which people share in serving God and others. We hope we can help you in your spiritual journey! Read more about the church's history and vision.

Opening hearts
We believe that living a life inspired by God’s love compels us to offer help, hope, and healing to those looking for more meaning in their lives.

Opening minds
We believe God’s grace is available to all people, no matter where you’re from, what you look like, or whom you love.

Opening doors
We believe in welcoming others into our lives, but also in taking action outside the walls of the church to serve our neighbors, next door and around the world.

Our Vision Statement
To create a true Christian family environment that spreads and grows into the community and allows the community to experience a closer relationship to Christ.

Statement of Commitment
As members of the body of Christ, we will faithfully participate in its ministries by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, and our service.
