Sand Point Community United Methodist Church was founded in 1944 by Dr. Harold O. Perry. No Protestant church served the Sand Point / View Ridge neighborhood of Seattle at the time, and Dr. Perry began holding services in the community hall of the Sand Point Naval Station. The first permanent church was constructed in 1945.
Today the church continues to serve the community by offering worship opportunities, the sacraments of baptism and communion with Jesus Christ, and special events celebrating the seasons of the Christian calendar. Our music program enhances our worship with outstanding organ and piano music, choir, bell choir and solo presentations, as well as Christmas and Lenten cantatas.
We offer many small group opportunities such as Bible study, prayer meetings, church school and youth group activities, fellowship dinner groups, and a women’s circle. We participate in Ecumenical and Interfaith services in Northeast Seattle, and give support to Sand Point Housing, ShareHouse, the Church of Mary Magdalene for homeless women, the University Food Bank, and many other local needs. We support our brothers and sisters around the world through our Methodist connections with emphasis in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Philippines, and Central America. Our building is a place a place where community leaders meet, the home of a preschool, and before and after school care, and where Alcoholics Anonymous and Alanon meet.
We invite our neighbors to join our friendly congregation. We provide parenting help for young families, and are open to all ages, persons of color, and persons with disabilities. We provide effective pastoral leadership, and encourage lay participation in every facet of the church. Our vision is to identify changing needs, and to plan and provide programs of nurture, education, outreach, and witness for everyone within the congregation and the community. God’s love and Jesus’ compassion guide us in our faith journey.
