About Us

Our Mission


Almena United Methodist Church is a people united by faith in Jesus Christ,

 who honor heritage and tradition with an eye on the future.  

We welcome all to walk and grow with us in Christ.

We worship God joyfully, care for others, witness to God’s accepting love,

and grow in fellowship with God and each other.
