About Our Church


umc-cross-and-flameWe are a group of people committed to the  United Methodist values of deep spiritual growth and compassionate service in the world on behalf of Christ.  Christ matters in the practice of our faith and in the living of our lives. 

We are progressive in our understanding of the scriptures and God’s call to justice in the world.  We believe that the Bible contains the truth of God in the language of humankind.  The call of God is for justice, compassion and mercy for all of humanity.  This call is unmistakable even through the centuries of scriptural translation and interpretation.  

Our worship, teaching and practice are focused on being led by the experience of God through Christ into a world that hungers for the message of wholeness and mercy that God has offered from the beginning.

The Sonoma United Methodist Church has been worshipping in Sonoma Valley since 1850.


Our Mission

We share with the United Methodist Church the purpose of inviting people into the spiritual life by becoming followers of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.  We are deeply committed to spiritual formation and to the expression of faith in compassionate working for justice locally and throughout the world. We believe that the grace of God is fully and freely available to all.
