Onley United Methodist Church has been an integral part of the community for over 100 years and continues to be a light in the world. The love and compassion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is reflected in the hearts and souls of the congregation at Onley UMC, and all are welcome to join us during our Sunday morning worship service.


The Mission of Onley UMC is to glorify God through Jesus Christ through praise, worship and giving thanks as we study, witness, fellowship and serve as the Holy Spirit guides and empowers us in our community and beyond. 


"United Methodists are disciples of Jesus Christ who continue to heed the lessons John Wesley taught his followers: to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, caring for the stranger, freeing the oppressed; being a compassionate presence, and working to develop social structures that are consistent with the gospel."



What is church? A place to go? A time on Sunday morning? We're looking to reclaim an identity of church--that being a community of people sharing God's love with the world.

We believe that together, with the help of God's love, we can establish meaningful community and share hope with one another.  We're excited for you to become part of our hopeful community, too.
