All Are Welcome

God loves you no matter what, and Jesus taught his followers to love your neighbor no matter who. That means KUMC welcomes, affirms, and invites you to worship, serve, and lead regardless of your race, color, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, age, physical and mental ability, economic station, or political ideology. Jesus's love has no asterisks. At KUMC, you are invited to experience and practice God's radically inclusive, transforming love for you and for all.
