Welcome to University Mennonite Church

We're glad you're here! We welcome people of all faiths, including seekers.

In an era of mass marketing, uncontrolled consumerism, loneliness, and growing violence, we are working to create a sense of community for ourselves and our neighbors.

We believe that the best response to cynicism, doubt, and isolation is to invite both friends and strangers to share the burdens and joys of life together-in Christ's community. We are an open group and you are welcome to join us.

A special welcome to new and returning Penn State Students - If you are looking for a new church home in State College, we invite you to join us.

Check out what's happening at UMC on the calendar below. Click on any event for more details.

Listening for Grace

All are Welcome

Wheel Chair Accesible SymbolOur church building is wheelchair-accessible. 
The Norma Street entrance has a chairlift that can access all building levels, and a wheelchair-accessible restroom is available on the same level as the sanctuary.

For those that need assistance hearing, active listening headsets are available for use during our worship services and may be picked up at the sound table at the back of the sanctuary.  If you choose, you may bring your own headphones to use with the devices.  The devices will work with any headphones or ear buds with an 1/8 inch jack.
