Worship Services Have Resumed

 Our 10 AM worship services at the church are continuing on the front lawn, weather permitting.  If it rains,  we will move this service indoors to the sanctuary.  If we do move worship indoors, state and church guidelines require all in attendance to wear masks.  For those who still wish to take more time before joining the congregation for public worship, we will continue to record the services each week for viewing here.

a note from our pastor

Welcome To South Yarmouth United Methodist Church

Welcome!

The South Yarmouth United Methodist Church stands within a long and rich history of Methodism on Cape Cod, going back at least to 1809 when the congregation gathered in a meeting house surrounded by the historic cemetery on Willow Street.  A new meeting house was built in 1852 at our present location on Old Main Street in the area then known as “Friend’s Village.”  Our congregation continues to worship in this historic, New England sanctuary.

Throughout our history, we have learned how to be resilient through the changes and challenges that come.  We have learned the importance of being willing to experiment with new ways of living out our faith and bearing witness to the good news of Jesus Christ.  We have always valued the importance of connecting with the larger community and are committed to welcoming everyone.

Today, we feel God calling us to strengthen the connections we share as members of the church, to reach out and partner with others in our community and to build upon our ministries with children, youth and young adults.  In addition, we have felt a special call to advocate for seniors within the congregation and community as well as focus on the crucial need for more affordable housing on the Cape.  We are also committed to caring for the natural beauty of this part of God’s marvelous creation so future generations will be able to enjoy this very special place called Cape Cod.

We hope the information on this website will give you a better feel for our congregation, but the best way to know us is to simply come; join us for worship any Sunday either in our historic sanctuary at 10 AM or during the summer months at Bass River Beach at 7:30 AM.  We invite you to stop by our Thrift Shop or join with us for any of the other activities you may learn about on these pages.  Know you are always welcome!

Blessings,
Pastor John
