1 John 4:19
A new year is a fresh start, a new beginning, a chance to look at our lives and ask what we might do different. How will we change some things? How will we start some new, life-enriching process?
This is how will it all starts.
As believers, we know that when it comes to faithful practice, it all starts with Jesus. It began with a God whose desire was to create and live in connection with that creation. It began with a God who, through an incredible act of love, entered into this world and lived and breathed and taught and preached as a man. It began with a man calling out to others, asking them to become part of what he was doing, ordinary people like fishermen and tax collectors. It began with people, like you and me, going about their lives trying to do the best they could.
As he called out to those going about their routines, he calls to us, in the middle of going to school, working, raising kids, going to church, attending family functions, cooking dinner, going shopping, he calls to us in the ordinary things, wherever we are, to be a part of God’s continuous redemptive work, to love because he loves us.
Where there is pain, we work for healing. Where there is despair, we sow the seeds of hope. Where there is hate, we spread love. All of this is done for the sake of reaching lives for Jesus. It’s the ability he has given to us upon receiving his offer to follow, an invitation
offered to us every day. Along the way, we do well to remember that the only reason we have the capacity to do this is, at some point in our lives, Jesus reached out to us.
That’s how it all starts.
Just as it started for those original disciples called to join in the ministry of Christ, it was a fresh start, a new beginning, a line in the sand where life forever changed, not only for them, but us, too. In order to reach out to others, we must first recognize that Jesus reached out to us, and he’s still reaching out, even now.
Here, at the beginning of a new year, that’s how it all starts again.

Beliefs and Values
At KUMC we believe that all that we have comes from God and that includes the church. It’s not our church, it’s HIS church. We are His stewards and His hands and feet in the world. We are excited to be part of a connectional system through the United Methodist Church that allows us to be at work, together with other United Methodists, all over the world.
What is a United Methodist?
Methodists have been known for our emphasis on a personal faith, lived out in concrete ways in the world. We have historically valued well-informed and passionate preaching, worship that was lively, and small groups where people could grow in faith.
Methodists have open hearts, and open minds–and welcome, with open doors, anyone interested in learning more about the Christian faith.
KUMC seeks to Splinter the Darkness in the world. We will help strengthen your faith, fuel your fire, and fill you with the fruits of Christ.
- We will share the gospel, inviting all into the family of faith.
- We will be a source of hope in our community and the world through missions and ministries – reaching out, listening, and accepting all.
- We will make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
KUMC was organized on July 29, 1917 with the first organizational meeting consisting of ten people. By the next year, work was underway to construct a building with much of the labor being done by the members themselves and the first services were conducted in that space in 1919. The last service was held there in May of 1948 after which demolition began followed by the construction of a new building and later, additional classroom space. In 1967 a new parsonage was constructed, and the former parsonage was renovated to provide additional space for church use. In the ensuing decades, KUMC served the community through programs for all ages – particularly children and families and responded to the changing needs of the area, adding a Food Pantry and Hispanic Ministry. God richly blessed us as we faithfully responded to his call. In recognition of our ministries and outreach, KUMC was recognized as one of the first ACTS 2 churches in the conference. And our ongoing support of missions continues to earn us recognition as a Rainbow Covenant church.
True to its roots, KUMC continued to be a “church on the move”. We broke ground on a new facility situated on a 10 acre site at the corner of Forestville and Old Crews Roads. In August of 2009, we joyfully celebrated our first worship service in that space, with the Bishop and District Superintendent in attendance with us. Our area’s continued growth in has created the demand for more adequate space for the varied ministries and missions God is calling us to do. Already future plans exist for additional building phases on this site which include a youth and music wing, another educational wing, and a dedicated sanctuary. By the grace of God, we look forward to continued growth and expanding ministries, missions, and outreach.
