Our Mission:

To make disciples of Jesus Christ
for the transformation of the world

Our Motto:

Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors


At the United Methodist Church, we have core beliefs centered upon God, Jesus the Christ, and the Holy Spirit. We do not, however, require every member and friend of our church to agree on every detail.  We don’t all have to believe exactly the same thing, but we believe in God and each other! There is room enough in this house of God for everyone, and you are encouraged to think for yourself about the matters of faith and religion.  We do not claim to have all the answers, but we do claim to help one another as we seek those answers together.


There are a number of different opportunities for fellowship within our family of faith.  Some are organized with certain groups in mind – like the United Methodist Women or United Methodist Youth Fellowship – and others are organized around a particular event – such as a potluck or mission opportunity.  We are a church of over 900 members – but we strive to have a feeling of connectedness and relationship among our members.


The United Methodist Church has long had an emphasis on missions and outreach, and the Memorial UMC in McCook is no different. From the Helping Hand Thrift Store, to the Community Garden, to a variety of other mission projects that come up from time to time, we do not shy away from being involved in our community and around the world.  We do not live out our faith in an isolated way – we believe we are meant to put our faith into action and freely share the love of God with the world, as we have so freely received it.
