WAYS TO CONNECT

Mission

We believe the world should be different, and so we are a space of radical hospitality connecting people to God and one another in everyday life.

 

Worship

Sunday Morning Communion Services 9:00 am & 11:00 am

Sunday Evening Communion Service 5:30 pm

Every Sunday we gather for reflection, conversation and community. We are a United Methodist faith community where every soul is welcome, valued and beloved. We believe questions are not only ok but expected. We believe difference is beautiful, and we want to honor each voice while we go deep into an ancient tradition. We believe that the church at its best is a hub for community, and so we invite you to join us at the table every Sunday, just as you are.

 

Discipleship

An Abbey is an intentional community where we don’t leave our spiritual growth to chance. Through small group study, discipleship classes like UA 101 & UA 201, and practicing spiritual disciplines, we seek to grow in the image of God.

 

Small Groups

We want people to be connected and care about each other and so we gather seasonally in small groups to journey through life’s ups and downs together. In small groups, we get to know one another and dig more deeply into the spiritual and theological topics that we are exploring in worship.

Each month, seekers have an opportunity to learn together about the Abbey community, the Bible, theological reflection, our Methodist roots, spiritual practices, and other topics that help us to grow in relationship with God and one another. In these classes, we also learn about what Urban Abbey membership means and discern if membership is where you are being called.

A Note About Our Use of the Word “Queer”:
Language changes fast. We acknowledge that many people have experienced this word in a wounding way. The Urban Abbey celebrates that people are beginning to reclaim this term, and we stand with them as a sign of affirmation of the progress that we have made.

 

Wesley Pub logoWesley Pub

Wesley Pub is for everyone, Christians, non-Christians, and people annoyed by by Christians. It is for everyone that might have given up on church or wouldn’t step foot in a church. Affiliated with the Urban Abbey UMC, but not exclusively Christian, join us for Church without a steeple; a community centered on exploring progressive theology and social justice topics through dialogue, reflection, art and music. Bring some beer or a bottle of wine to share. Everyone is welcome, but you must be 21 to partake responsibly.

 

Spiritual Practices

Spiritual practices urge us to draw deep into God’s presence, to listen, to open ourselves to the Spirit’s urging. There are so many ways to explore prayer through worship and song, through quiet and time-tested methods:

Recollection/Centering Down

Praying the Scriptures

Intercessory Prayer

Wesleyan Covenant Prayer

Zen Meditation

Urban Walking Labyrinth
