Welcome to Seabold United Methodist Church. We hope that our website will be useful for providing information about our church. It includes service times, directions, what to expect, and information about our programs.
We are excited to have a new pastor Cindy Roberts comes to us from the United Methodist church in Chelan, Washington.
Rev. Cindy Roberts is currently appointed to Seabold United Methodist Church. Most recently Pastor Cindy was serving a two point parish, Lake Chelan United Methodist Church and Manson United Methodist Church. She has served churches in Brownsville, WA, Douglas United Methodist Church in Juneau, Alaska and a three point charge in central Idaho: Grangeville Nezperce and White Bird UMC’s. Pastor Cindy was ordained in 2006 after attending Seminary at Vancouver School of Theology in Vancouver British Columbia and Seattle University. Currently Pastor Cindy is working on a Doctorate in, researching how we know if the Holy Spirit is working in the Church. It might take her longer than she thought.
Our goal as a church is to be welcoming to all. And for us, all means all. We, of course, are not perfect. Some of us do better than others at welcoming everybody. But as a body, we have decided that we will move in the direction of inclusion of everyone, with all of their diversity of races, sexual orientations or preferences, genders, ethnicities, political or social perspectives, and (dis)abilities.
The Church is an interesting place. It is one of the few places left in our world where you can really be with people who are so different from you. Today, we tend to make our lives echo chambers, where we only hear the voices we agree with. Church is one place where liberals sit down next to conservatives and attempt to figure out how to live together.
We cannot promise a safe place where nobody will ever get hurt. Anyone who tries to sell you that cannot follow through on that promise—there never can be a truly safe place. However, where ever you are coming from, whatever your experiences with churches in the past, I will do my best to create an environment that will be welcoming and enriching.
