Our Mission & Vision

Welcome to the journey!

Let me be one of the first to say, “Welcome to Painesville United Methodist Church, On the Square, Steeped in Prayer!” We trust you experienced a warm and genuine welcome from members and friends as soon as you walked through the doors – or visited via this website.

We invite you to come as you are. We are a United Methodist Congregation that seeks to love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength and to love one another as Christ loves us. With the help of God’s Holy Spirit, we intend to live in the world as the Body of Christ, expressing God’s transforming love and amazing grace in our church, our community, and wherever we go in the world God so loves.

Our 1873 Cornerstone has these words inscribed: “Search the Scriptures.” We are inspired that this is part of the founding vision of Painesville UMC and is yet current and fitting for today.

With this founding vision driving us, we are a church that seeks to practice “Open hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors” in the best ways described in Scripture.

Thank You for the privilege of getting to know you. Please consider this note an open invitation to come worship, find fellowship, and discover opportunities to grow and serve. Please feel free to contact any member of the staff with your questions.

Best of All Is God Is with Us!

Rev. Jim Winkler, Pastor
