COVID-19 Accommodations and Updates
We know you have questions!
Please refer to this page for the most up-to-date information.
The Keller UMC offices are currently open to staff only at this time. Hybrid Worship, (online and in person by reservation) is Sunday at 9 and 11am. Online programming for all ages is also available. Our Ministry Council is evaluating and making determinations on how and when we might be able to re-open on a larger scale. We regret that we won't be able to gather for some of our in-person activities for a while but we celebrate that many of our small groups are finding new ways to connect with each other!
When can I expect another update?
Quick News is emailed to all subscribers on Tuesdays. If you do not get the weekly email newsletter, you can view this week's here. We are also sending a weekly Message from Your Pastors email on Fridays. Click here for this Friday's message!
How do I give while the campus is closed?
Although worship and regular programming are operating online only at this point, ministry is still happening. Keller United Methodist Church is still serving our community and congregation, therefore, we still rely on faithful giving. You may make an online gift here or text 817-809-3431 to give on your smartphone. As always, you are welcome to send your gifts in the mail. We are picking up our mail regularly. If you have any questions on ways you can give, contact Dan Reid, KUMC Financial Administrator.

Do You Enjoy Sewing?
Sisters of Sewing circle is making face masks for various organizations in the community and beyond. We are using the pattern from Deaconess Hospital in Evansville, Indiana but we are altering their pattern to allow for an opening in the back for insertion of a filter. If you have sewing experience and are interested in helping us, contact Julie McLauchlin (361-244-4411) for details.
The KUMC Resource Center is open Tuesdays, 10am-1pm and Wednesdays, 4-7pm. If you know someone that needs help with food in this time of uncertainty, please refer them to the Resource Center for a free box of food.
