greetings from Pastor ELGAN REYNOLDS

Greetings and Salutations in the name of our risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.



I am so glad you stopped by our website. We the people of Shoregate United Methodist Church are a welcoming and loving congregation. Here the Word of God is preached and the name of Jesus is lifted up. We are on a mission: “to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world”, and so we are dedicated to walking with you, nurturing you and helping you as we all take this journey, this Christian journey, to greater discipleship.


As is stated in the Apostle’s Creed, “We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; the third day He rose from the dead, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.”


Our doors are open and you have a personal invitation to visit and worship with us on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am.


We look forward to seeing you very soon to praise God together.


Please feel free to contact us at 440-943-0382.



May the peace of God and the sweet communion of the Holy Spirit, rest, rule, and abide with you now and forever. Amen.



Pastor Elgan Reynolds
