Parker Memorial United Methodist Church is a progressive and inclusive Christian community. “Come as you are” is the invitation we extend to everyone who visits or takes part in our community during their personal search for God. This means all spiritual seekers are welcome. We welcome people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and all people of color. (For a full statement of our inclusivity, see the bottom of the page). Openness and acceptance of our peoples’ unique contributions in worship (art, poetry, music, dance, etc.) are integral parts of the Parker community. We seek to “live the questions” of Christian faith in our lives.
Motto: "Where Jesus and ALL his friends are welcome!"
Mission: Practicing compassion in all our affairs

Parker Memorial United Methodist Church - Reconciling Ministries Network statement of inclusivity:
Parker UMC is a faith collective that welcomes all persons to celebrate in the love of God and their birthright as children of God. We believe in full inclusion and so we say "all are welcome means all," including people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, races, ethnicities, ages, faith histories, economic status, marital status, physical and mental ability, and education. The Parker community works for equal rights for all humans and the natural world. We believe that the diversity of our community makes our faith stronger, our spirituality deeper, and our service more helpful.
