Welcome to Mountain View!

A community with big hearts and big ministries, seeking to know Christ through worship, service, study, and fellowship.

In-Person Worship Starting December 6, 2020
This coming Sunday (December 6), we will begin offering in-person, indoor worship in the Sanctuary at 10:00 a.m. Each person (over the age of five) will be required to wear a mask, and we will have the seating spaced out so that we can respect social distancing. We will offer a nursery for infants and toddlers, and we will debut KidZone, a ministry for those in Kindergarten through 5th grade. We know that not everyone is comfortable coming back to church at this time, and we respect and honor that decision. We will still be offering our online services, although those will not be posted on Facebook, YouTube, or our church website until Sunday evening. 
   
 


 
Family Christmas Kickoff! 
 Join us Sunday, December 6 from 2:00-4:00 on the field for crafts, treats, special visitors from Bethlehem, and more!
This is a weather permitting event so please check our website in case of rain.

Please note that masks and social distancing will be required.
Hand sanitizer will be provided at craft stations.
 

 
Christmas Eve Services
Join us on Christmas Eve (a Thursday this year) for a Christmas and Carols service at 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Both will feature traditional Christmas hymns and will conclude with the lighting of each person's candle (and for parents who don't feel comfortable with their child handling a candle, we will offer "glow sticks"). Our 5:00 service will be geared a bit more towards children, but people of all ages will be blessed by it (and likewise, kids at the 7:00 service will be blessed by that time together). Regardless of which service you attend, it will be a sacred, special, and memorable evening.

Bethlehem Walk COVID Update

Walk the Walk (Virtually)
Since 1992, the annual Bethlehem Walk at Mountain View United Methodist Church attracts over 5,000 people each year, presenting a live recreation of the Christmas story. This annual event appeals to people of all ages and stages of life, as they experience both education and inspiration. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives, but it hasn’t changed our desire to make a powerful impact on our community. At Bethlehem Walk, we value each person’s health and safety, and we are using this as an opportunity to cultivate new ideas and presentation. Our 2020 “virtual” version of Bethlehem Walk will break new ground through innovative theatrics and multi-media technology. Now, you can watch from the comfort of your own home, visiting Bethlehem from your couch while snuggled warmly in your pajamas! No lines, no wait, no rain, no frigid temperatures! Specific details and a release date are coming soon!

Online Children's Lessons

Each week our music director, Emily Adams, is developing online lessons just for our sweet Mountain View kids. The lessons usually consist of a video and a worksheet. All of those lessons can be found on our children's website page here. We hope you enjoy these lessons with your family. And we can't wait to be with your children again!
