Sedona UMC is celebrating their 34th Church Anniversary. The theme for this year is: “Celebration of Age”. We will be recognizing our members that are 90+ years young. Our new Bishop will be here to participate in our celebration.
A Brief History of Sedona United Methodist Church: After retiring from ministry in 1977 Rev. David Ellsworth and his wife Eleanor moved to Sedona. After their move it became clear to David that Sedona needed a church that was spiritual, and had a contagious friendly spirit and also had a worship service that was alive and joyful. After working with the Phoenix District Superintendent for over two years the Bell Rock United Methodist Church was chartered on Oct. 19, 1980. In 1981 the church moved to an empty church in uptown Sedona and the name was changed to Sedona United Methodist Church. Since that time 10 Pastors have served our church.
A more detailed history of SUMC will be included with our worship service souvenir edition offer at the 34th Anniversary Celebration on Oct. 19th.
Our new Bishop Robert Tsugio Hoshibata was born and raised in Hawaii. He learned to know Jesus Christ and grew to love the church through the ministry of Wahiawa United Methodist Church in the plantation town of Wahiawa. At age 14, Bob made a commitment to enter the ordained ministry of The United Methodist Church. From that moment, the church occupied much of Bob’s time as energy and he discovered and utilized gifts God had given him for ministry. We look forward to his visit and celebrating with our congregation.
