Crete UMC Worship Services are scheduled to resume on Sunday,

August 16th.


Our first priority remains keeping one another safe. We care deeply for you, and remain committed to doing all we can for each other’s safety and health. To that end, I’m offering a word of caution, that the August 16th date should be treated as preliminary. We will keep assessing the situation as time marches on and will inform you immediately should any changes be made to this schedule.

The in-person ministries of the church will also resume on August 16, 2020. Our Boy Scouts and support groups will be able to meet in the church, following CDC guidelines. However, our Before and After School Program and Enduring Strings Program will be closed until further notice.

New in-Person Worship times beginning August 16th are

Sundays at 10:00 a.m.


Wednesday Evenings at

7:00 p.m.
