We’re glad that you are visiting the Sunbury United Methodist Church website. Most of our lives are very busy with work, family activities, and our individual interests. There always seems to be one more decision to make or one more thing that needs done. Therefore, few of us are looking for one more place to go or one more thing to do. 

What if there was a time, what if there was a place, what if there were a people, and what if there was a relationship that had the potential to restore sanity to the rest of our lives? 

Sunbury United Methodist Church offers all of these things - good times, comfortable and pleasant surroundings, warm and friendly people, and all sorts of opportunities for spiritual growth.   We welcome those who just want the warmth and support of a caring Christian community, those who simply want to know more about Christ, those who are considering a relationship with Christ, and those who are already Disciples of Christ.

Come and see us.  Everyone is welcome at the crossroads of Route 3 and 37 where life and faith intersect.

Outdoor activities will feature a bonfire, open fire pits for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, popcorn, hayrides, a pumpkin patch, puppet show and the BST&G Fire District’s smokehouse. The evening will come to a close with the popular Trunk-or-Treat activity.
