CONSIDER MSUMC for your building needs


Our church has unique space in downtown Providence that is available for long- and short-term rentals. We have a newly renovated commercial kitchen with an adjacent 2800 square foot hall, a black box theater, a serene chapel, and smaller meeting space that is perfect for programming, trainings, and offices. Suitable for non-profits, families, start-up businesses, and those that are independently owned. We are the perfect venue for weddings, reunions, fitness workshops, culinary trainings, pop-up dinners, dances, fundraisers, and parties. For more information:

Our Mission

We are a church in the heart of the citysustained by the reconciling love of Godand providing hope for all people.

Our Character
We are one of the more than 300 United Methodist congregations belonging to the
Reconciling Ministries Network.  As part of the reconciling movement, we believe Christ's love is meant for all God's children. We thus welcome our brothers and sisters of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
Our parishioners include heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual, and transgender individuals, as well as heterosexual, transgender, and same-sex couples and families. Our faces are shades of black, brown, and white. Our ages range from the very young to the very old. Some of us are people of means; others not so much. Our cultural backgrounds are diverse. But whatever our differences, we are united in believing that our hearts and actions should be guided by Jesus' fundamental dictum to "love thy neighbor."
