Welcome to Countryside United Methodist Church


Saturday, February 10, 2018 at  6:30 pm



Welcome to Countryside United Methodist Church. We invite you to join us throughout the week as we join together to worship, to study, to celebrate our faith, and to fellowship with one another.

Open Hearts. Open Doors. Open Minds.

Countryside is a congregation of about 200 members. In addition to worship, we have several study groups and fellowship groups. We work especially hard at being an inclusive faith community where persons from all walks of life feel comfortable worshipping and working together. Our commitment to the Gospel of Jesus Christ continues to connect us to the past and catapults us into the future. In Christ, all things are possible.

Although the history of Countryside United Methodist Church spans roughly 40 years, Countryside evolved from a desire for a bridge between the peoples of Sidney and Philo. Methodist ministry began in the 1830’s when Andrew Jackson was President of the United States. The legacy of Countryside includes former churches like Alice Chapel, Lost Grove, Pleasant Hill and the Methodist Churches of Philo and Sidney. Throughout the years the names and faces have changed. Yet the commitment of Countryside is based upon the love of God and our mission is to reach out and make disciples for Jesus Christ.

Our new website is a work in progress, so please check back often.

Just wanted to remind you all that this evening 6-8 we are meeting for Fat Tuesday. All are welcome, pancakes, sausages, some casserole and whatever ever else Karen has come up with. It is a lot of fun and good food. Come and bring a friend. Donations accepted and they go to the upcoming mission trip.
