What can I expect when I come to DUMC for worship?


You can expect to be greeted warmly and treated with hospitality. We want all visitors to feel like honored guests. Worship begins at 10:30 a.m. and follows a traditional format of hymns and prayers. The service lasts for about an hour. We try to make our worship experience and the sermons meaningful and relevant to people's lives. Come as you are. Don't get dressed up on our account.


Downey United Methodist Church is the first church established in the city of Downey (then called Los Nietos Valley). We first worshipped as a community in 1854. That means that since before the Civil War, the Methodists were in mission in Downey.. Our congregation has gone through many changes in those years. We have witnessed the Civil War, the end of slavery in America, the Industrial Revolution, the First and Second World Wars, Korea, Vietnam, the Civil Rights movement and much more. Through it all, we have been a place of God's grace and love for all people. The world continues to change and the development of technology speeds up the pace of those changes. DUMC is still here, in the heart of the city, providing ministry to all of God's children. Come and see how God continues to be on the move at DUMC.
