Our Mission & Beliefs

We strive to be the heart of a thriving neighborhood where all people are valued and become deeply committed followers of Jesus Christ. 

Sedgefield United Methodist Church was originally named St. Paul Methodist Church. It was established in 1948 with 125 charter members. The current sanctuary building was built in 1957 with the Educational Building completed in 1961.

The name change to Sedgefield United Methodist Church happened in 2013 in order to identify closely with the surrounding neighborhood.

Our Mission: (Why do we exist?) “To make disciples for Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world”.
