Lighthouse Church

PUMC is proud to be a lighthouse church! We know that some church members in the East Ohio Conference are on a pilgrimage searching for new church homes, a place to heal and reconnect with God, or both. In this time of pilgrimage, we do not want any member to feel abandoned, lost, or disconnected.  After providing training to churches for several months in 2023-2024, the East Ohio Conference has given the designation of “Lighthouse Church” to the teams who have successfully completed these training sessions of hospitality, love, and welcome and are prepared to be beacons of light for those who are looking for a new church home.  The Painesville United Methodist Church is a designated Lighthouse Church and invites you to be a part of our congregation.  Contact us to learn more about transferring your membership to the Painesville United Methodist Church.  Welcome home!
