Neighborhood United Methodist Church
The Good News for All
Join Us Sunday Mornings at 10:30am!
Worship services are located in the Sanctuary (through the doors under the overhang, to the left when you get in) and are about 45 minutes long. The stained glass windows, wooden pews, and classic hymns give the service a traditional feel; but casual dress, quality coffee, and relevant sermons make it a comfortable and modern experience.
140 Years and Counting...
The building has been used for collective worship since its inception in 1881. One way we hope Harbor and Bridge as a church supports the neighborhood is in the name: Harbor - a sacred space to find safety and acceptance. Bridge - opportunities to bridge the gaps in our community or within our own selves.
What We Believe
Harbor and Bridge developed from and is anchored in the United Methodist tradition. The UMC has long been a people who are deeply rooted in the Good News of Jesus Christ and believes that News gives life and hope to all people everywhere.
As we open our doors to the various neighborhoods of Cleveland, we have to ask, "Is this a faith that supports people as they live, work, and play in this community?" Do we carry an urgency to respond to the sharp income disparity in densely populated areas? Can be a part of the solution for a city that continues to rebound from population and economic loss? And can we say we have a theology and practice that advocates for the full rights and inclusion of minorities and LGBTQ persons? The answer to all of those is "yes."
We hope that Harbor and Bridge can be a church that connects God to the people, and the people to God.
