We're Back and Better Than Ever!

Join Us at Locust UMC


Dear Members of the Congregation and Community, 

I am absolutely thrilled to share some fantastic news with all of you: Locust United Methodist Church is finally reopening its doors after a significant period of renovation and expansion! It has been a journey filled with anticipation, hard work, and unwavering dedication, but we are now back and better than ever. Please join us every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for worship. 

Our newly renovated and expanded space is a testament to the faith, commitment, and generosity of our congregation and community. With more room to gather, worship, and grow together, we are eager to embark on this new chapter in the life of Locust UMC. 

Throughout the renovation process, our strategic plan for mission and outreach has remained at the forefront of our efforts. We are proud to say that despite the challenges posed by the hiatus, our mission initiatives have not only endured but have thrived. Our commitment to serving our community, spreading love and compassion, and making a positive impact in the world is stronger than ever before. 

As we reopen our doors, we want to extend a warm invitation to each and every one of you to join us in celebrating this exciting milestone. Whether you have been a longtime member of our congregation or are curious about what Locust UMC has to offer, we welcome you with open arms. 

But our invitation doesn't stop there. We encourage you to spread the word to your loved ones, friends, and neighbors. Let them know about the exciting ministry happening here at Locust UMC and invite them to come and experience it for themselves. Together, we can create a vibrant and inclusive community where all are welcome and cherished. 

Thank you for your unwavering support and dedication throughout this journey. We are incredibly grateful for each and every one of you, and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for Locust UMC.




With excitement and anticipation,

Rev. Marion Easterling, M.Div.

Senior Pastor of Locust United Methodist Church
