Willits United Methodist Church is a community of believers and learners, serving Christ, committed to our mission “to share the transforming power of God’s Love with all people.”
You are warmly invited to join us for worship at 11 a.m. The church is located at 286 School Street in Willits, at the corner of School and Pine Streets, right across from the Little Lake Grange.
A Reconciling Church
Willits United Methodist Church is a Reconciling Church. We affirm that we are all God’s Children—regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, social status, economic status, or mental or physical ability. We strive to be an open and welcoming church to all whom God sends us. We acknowledge that we will fall short sometimes, but we strive, with God’s help, to live up to the motto, “Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.”
What does General Conference 2019 mean for us?
The decision made by the General Conference in February 2019 in St. Louis to continue the exclusion of LGBTQIA persons from the ministry and from marriage within the church, is controversial and divisive. WUMC has a long history as an inclusive church, open to all (and ALL means ALL). WUMC is part of the Reconciling Ministries Network. We are waiting and watching to see what action the Western Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church takes, and we share this message from the Western Jurisdiction bishops, called “A Home for All God’s People.” Click here to go to the Western Jurisdiction page and watch the message.
