Everyone is welcome!  We invite you to worship with us Sunday mornings and then enjoy lunch together.  Join our study groups where folks are trying to sort out answers to life's questions, big and small, or just stop by for some conversation. Come help us as we serve the community and the world.  We laugh together, cry together, and celebrate the connections between us.

Our spectacular stained-glass window was designed and created in 1966 by Toby Schreiber. Toby and her husband, Dick, are founding members of MUMC. Toby is an accomplished artist, writer and athlete, as well as a renowned potter in the tradition of Ancient Greek vessels. Her definitive book, Athenian Based Construction: A Potter’s Analysis, was published by the Getty Museum. It is considered to be “…the finest and most important book on Greek vases in the last twenty-years”, Bryn Mawr Classical Review.

Our choir at MUMC is all about enhancing our congregation’s spiritual experience. And diversity and inclusion are our middle names! Our members are diverse culturally and musically, and we welcome ALL levels of musicianship and all ages! Most of us have been together for years. We have great soloists, and our choices of music include everything from Handel to The Beatles, Tom Petty to jazz to traditional hymns. All are welcome to join us. We rehearse at 9:45 Sundays before our worship service begins. Come join us for fun and community!

The Labyrinth




The Labyrinth is an ancient pattern that is at least 3500 years old.  No one knows the exact origin but the shape is found on every continent on earth.  It is essentially a spiral that leads one to the center and back out again.  It is used as a walking meditation, a way to pray, and a tool for discovering the presence of God.

The circular shape of the labyrinth symbolizes safety.  Within the circle one can feel safe to release worry and relax for a few moments.


“A Mural of Faith and Compassion”

Artist David Legaspi III hand painted this 300-foot mural titled, “A Mural of Faith and Compassion” comprised of seven panels.

Before beginning, David met with then Pastor of MUMC, Larry Peacock, to pour over children’s Bible storybooks and pull out key moments in Biblical history. The first three panels from the left to the right are scenes from the Old Testament. The next two are scenes from the New Testament. The final two are depictions of historic and modern saints, such as Sacajwea, Sojourner Truth, Dorothy Day, Bill Wilson, John Muir, Fr. Romero, Martin Luther King, Jr., Cesar Chavez, Ghandi, Mother Teresa, Thoreau and Nelson Mandela

Visitors are welcome and may view the mural in the upper parking lot.
