SJUMC Church App is Available

Mobile app

We are so excited to tell you that the church app is available to you! With this app, you will be able to easily click on all our Sunday worship opportunities from your phone, tablet, or iPad. You will be able to watch our Sunday worship service with one click (and children’s weekly worship). It will give you easy access to the Sunday bulletin, online fellowship opportunities, Sunday School and worship attendance. You can fill out a prayer request. You can also read the Bible on the app!

Please click the link below to download it!

We are still working on the app for revisions and future capabilities, so if you have any suggestions or questions, please email Rev. Motoe.

Many thanks for JB Brayfindeley who helped us to set up the app! Please download it and tell others to download it! Praise God!!!
