Welcome Home to a Church That is Joyful and Alive!

We are in Community with God, each other, and the world. Services appeal to both young and old, engaging our hearts, minds, and spirits with the Holy Spirit of God. Our preaching is Biblical, practical and inspiring. We celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion every week in the main worship services.  It is a time of mystery and connection with something bigger than ourselves.

Marathon Community United Methodist Church is the oldest continuing congregation in Marathon. Established as a non-denominational church in 1948, we became a Methodist church in 1952 and United Methodist in 1968. Our primary purpose is to “declare God’s praise in the islands” and make disciples for Jesus Christ. Our congregation is diverse, with folks from all around the country and even the world who share the love of Jesus Christ with each other and with the community around us.

We are a vibrant and joyful church that provides a space through its worship for every person to encounter God. We have traditional and blended contemporary worship services, Bible studies, adult and children’s Sunday School, recovery ministries, and individual counseling by the pastor. Our worship is not about style, it’s about God.

Come visit us, and see why so many people keep coming back!
