Soddy UMC seeks to passionately follow Jesus Christ in every area of our lives through worship, service, outreach, missions and fellowship. We are called to be the hands, feet and heart of Jesus Christ in our community and world. We welcome and invite all persons to participate in the life and activities of our church family. You will find a warm, loving fellowship of Christians who are committed to growing the kingdom of God, to reaching out in love, and to maturing in our faith as followers of Jesus.
The mission of Soddy UMC is Glorifying, Growing, Going For God since 1860.
We are committed to glorifying God in our worship and discipleship; we are committed to growing as disciples of Jesus in service to others and through fellowship; and we are committed to going into the world with the good news of the gospel through missions and outreach.
No matter who you are—no matter what walk of life you come from—there is a place for you at Soddy UMC! If you’re looking for a family-friendly place to walk with you on your journey of faith, stop by for a visit. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have and we hope to see you soon!
Guest information brochure
worship to begin on
Sunday, September 13,
inside the church
We're excited to announce outdoor worship.
Bring a lawn chair, your mask (yes, you still have to wear it), your Bible,
and join us beginning September 13 at 8:30 AM.
Please note that if the weather is bad on Saturday night/Sunday morning
the service will be cancelled.
You're asked to bring a lawn chair.
Social distancing will still be maintained (so no handshakes, hugs, etc.).
Families will be expected to sit together.
Offering plates will not be passed but will be available for your offering.
Due to the brevity of the service, the restrooms/fellowship hall will not be open.
And you will need to wear a mask.
Naturally, if you're over the age of 65, not feeling well, or providing care for someone, you're still encouraged to remain at home. Don't risk your health by trying to return to church too soon. Err on the side of caution as you've been doing.
The sermons will continue to be pre-recorded and posted to Facebook and our YouTube channel for those who aren't comfortable with outdoor worship, or if we have to cancel the service due to bad weather.
The service will last approximately 35-45 minutes.
The sacrament of the Lord's Supper:
Sunday, October 4th 11:00 AM
Sunday, December 6th 11:00 AM
Everyone is welcome to participate!
