We invite you to join us in worship online. Currently we have combined our Traditional and Contemporary services into one service held at 10 am. This service features classic hymns sung with an organ and praise music led by our Praise Band.
Online worship is offered "live" as well as recorded for those that are unable to worship at 10 am on Sunday. Link to our online services:
Become a part of our community.
We connect in healthy, loving, deepening, and grace-filled relationships with God and community to know life in Christ.
For our adults, we offer a number of different opportunities to connect and grow in your relationship with God and others.
• Small Groups
We strongly believe that life wasn't meant to be lived alone. Our missional groups change lives, connect people and build a community. They offer easy, comfortable environments for you to grow in relationship with God and others. We offer Interest Groups, Study Groups and Care Ministries. Sign up for any of the following groups by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (513) 398-4741.
Here at Mason UMC, we are reaching our communities and changing our world for Jesus. We offer programs such as, Christ's Cupboard and Queen City Soup Kitchen because we are called to serve our city and the world by reflecting the love of God.
Currently due to the COVID pandemic and the safety of your children, we are not offering a Children's Ministry program.
As the pandemic eases along with an increased desire for and participation in a Children's Ministry, we will be starting our Children's Ministry up again. Our first step in this re-launching will be for Kindergarten through 4th graders. This will be a time for children to worship, connect, and serve in their own unique ways.
Pack 998 - Cub Scouting is for boys in the first through fifth grades, or 7 to 10 years of age.
Troop 194 - Boy Scouting is for boys 11 years old
or who have completed the fifth grade, until the age of 18. www.troop194-mason.org
Crew 194 - Venture Scouts is for boys and girls ages 14 through 20.
Life is better together.
We worship God in relevant, meaningful, and powerful ways to express our thanks and praise for life in Christ.
There are many way to become involved!
We serve to meet physical, emotional, and spiritual needs so all may experience life in Christ.
