Who We Are


The Magnolia United Methodist Church is a Christ-centered, people-caring church in Magnolia, Ohio.  We have a long history in the Sandy Valley area and over the years we have earned a reputation for powerful prayer.  Our church family is welcoming and friendly and committed to prayerfully supporting one another.

We work hard as a community to keep the Church growing and evolving to meet the needs of our current members as well as prospective attendees.  From our leadership structure all the way down to our children’s ministry, we strive to offer meaningful ways for anyone interested to become involved.  We have growing small group opportunities, a newly developed Discipleship Program to train spiritual leaders, a vibrant children’s ministry as well as adult Sunday school classes and several ministry teams.  We’ve also increased our emphasis and support of mission work – local, national and global – to put God’s love into action.

We average 160 worshipers on Sunday mornings and offer several opportunities for education, fellowship and mission throughout the rest of the week as well.  Our pastor’s teachings are biblically based and in line with United Methodist doctrine.

As of July 1, 2015, Magnolia United Methodist Church has entered into a Regional Shared Ministry collaboration with Sandyville United Methodist Church and Asbury United Methodist Church.  With this unique approach, we are able to work together to make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
