Shawnee United Methodist Church KS
Who We Are

Shawnee United Methodist Church is a local church that is a part of the United Methodist Church denomination. The United Methodist church exists globally and we are one of them. While we belong to a denomination, we are not a cookie cutter variety of church. We are Protestant in our faith, and each local congregation of the United Methodist Church is connected by our common basic belief system. Yet, we are distinguished individually by location, mission and vision. As one pastor has stated: “We are all churches within one family, our first name might be different (Asbury, Shawnee, Trinity, Church of the Resurrection, Aldersgate), but our last name is the same — United Methodist Church.


We are a part of the Protestant Faith in which each congregation handles its own business but is connected through a larger church that covers districts, conferences on a statewide and jurisdictional level, as well as the General Conference which includes United Methodist Churches across the globe.


Membership in a local congregation provides an opportunity to serve in a community of faith that meets, your specific needs, but also allows an individual to participate in a broader context of district, conference, jurisdictional and general church ministry opportunities. That is the beauty of “connectional ministries”. We can partner with as many or as few other United Methodist Churches, or we may participate in ministries (interfaith or interdenominational) that allow us to achieve God’s purpose for our church, our community and Christ’s world. Our members are invited to join us in advancing the God’s Kingdom through sound biblical teaching, the use of their particular gifts and strengths for ministry, growing in their faith, engaging in the world, and participating in an active discipling relationship with Jesus Christ. Through this broader connection, we experience and participate in ministries of local mission and outreach, as well as global missions.
