Reconciling Ministries

Sun Prairie United Methodist Church is a community committed to H.O.P.E.(Hospitality – Offering Christ – Purposeful living – Engaging our communities).

In 2013, our church voted to become a Reconciling congregation.  In that declaration, we have said that, “Our welcome knows no boundaries.”

We believe there are no limits to God’s love and we seek to model that love in the way we welcome people…all people.

Part of being a Reconciling congregation means we welcome all people, regardless of their personal characteristics of age, race, gender, ability, gender identity or sexual orientation.

SPUMC is a member of the Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN).  The mission of the Reconciling Ministries Network is to mobilize United Methodists of all sexual orientations and gender identities to transform our Church and world into the full expression of Christ’s inclusive love.  You can read more about RMN at their website here.

  • Human Trafficking WisconsinWednesday, September 12 @ 6:00 pm Sun Prairie Library Community Room
    Cases of human trafficking have been identified in all 72 counties in Wisconsin.
