Since Christmas Day falls on a Sunday this year, the church administrative council has chosen to have our worship service and Christmas Eve service all in one service on Saturday, December 24th, 2016 at 6:30 PM.

Welcome to the Douglass United Methodist Church!

Welcome to the official website of the Douglass United Methodist Church! On this site, you can find helpful information about our church such as the history of Douglass UMC, how to contact us, and church events & community happenings. We hope you enjoy your virtual visit and we hope to see you here in person soon!

The Douglass United Methodist Church or DUMC for short is the United Methodist Church in the town of Douglass, Kansas. Douglass is a small, quiet community located in the Southwestern part of Butler County along Highway 77. Our church has a lot to offer from Worship to Church Choir. If you are in the area on Sunday Morning, stop in and join us for Fellowship and Worship. Sunday services are normally lead by our Pastor, Dan Ferguson.

***Merry Christmas from the Douglass United Methodist Church!***

Hope everyone has a safe and blessed holiday season!
