Our Mission Statement

“Encouraging people on their journey to discover extraordinary life in Christ.”

North Raleigh United Methodist Church is a community of Christians at different stages in our spiritual journeys. We are bound by a common need to worship, praise, and serve our Lord. We are united in praise and service to Jesus Christ. We are people of all ages and stages from newborns to senior citizens. We are people involved in ministry, in teaching, and in learning.

Our Vision Statement

We glorify God and make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world by offering a safe and caring environment for anyone who is searching to be spiritually fulfilled and accepted. 

As a community of faith, our core values are:

Our Heritage

  • GraceGod’s unearned love is always at work in our lives, going before us, redeeming us, and continually shaping us in Christ’s likeness. We seek to embrace grace and impart it to one another.
  • CompassionAs God suffers with us we, too, are called to deeply engage and even suffer with one another in our broken world.
  • GenerosityAll of life is a gracious outpouring from our God who invites us to live as examples of divine love, pouring ourselves generously into each other and our world.

Our Growing Edges

  • AuthenticityWe align our words and actions with God’s perfect love.
  • InclusivityWe welcome all who seek to know Christ and provide a place to belong, serve, grow, and encounter our living God.
  • CourageWith openness and boldness of faith, we embody Jesus’ prayer as he contemplated the cross, “Not my will, but yours [God’s] be done.”


At NRUMC, we have several worship services each Sunday morning.

Traditional services are held on Sundays at 8:30, 10:00, and 11:15 in the sanctuary. Traditional worship includes singing of hymns and use of congregational prayers and traditional creeds of the church.

Our Contemporary Service, Souljourn, is held at 9:45 in the Fellowship Hall. Our contemporary worship experience involves all of our senses in praise and adoration of God. Led by our clergy and worship music leaders, we are refreshed and strengthened for our journeys of faith and life in Jesus Christ.

Children’s Church is for children ages 3-grade 2. We start each Sunday (except Communion Sundays) in the Sanctuary; after the Children’s Message, we move to the Music Room for an exciting and interactive worship time!

We also offer special services on Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and Easter sunrise.

Sunday School and Nursery Care

Christian education has always been important at North Raleigh United Methodist. We have classes for children (from age 2 to 5th grade) and youth (6th grade through high school), led by an enthusiastic and dedicated group of teachers. Because we never stop learning, we have a wide range of Adult Sunday School classes as well.

What time is Sunday School? 9:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

We offer two morning sessions of Sunday School each week at 9:45 and 11:00. At 9:45, we offer classes for children, youth, and adults.  At 11:00, we have a class for adults. Since people learn in different ways, class formats range from lectures to open discussion. Because people want to learn about different things, class topics range from Bible study to life applications to social principles. No matter how much you know, there is always more to learn!

Nursery Care: A nursery is provided in the main Sanctuary building for infants and children through age three for the entire morning. For assistance, please see an usher; and parents, please be sure to sign your children in at the nursery. Our pager system will allow parents to be contacted by the nursery workers during worship, if needed.
