The Streams is an idea born out of the church's deep desire to reach people online. Our live-streamed service has been successful at bringing new people into our midst, both online and in-person, but it is very much a back of the room view. We wanted to explore what it would be like to provide an intentional online service in which you can see faces and hear voices that are showing up precisely for the online audience as well as providing opportunities for the online community to connect in real and meaningful ways with Marshfield UMC.
And if you're not in Marshfield, MO -- you're not alone! We have members and regular attenders from all over Missouri and surrounding states. If you're looking for a church home that is deeply Wesleyan, intentionally online, discipleship-centered, and not afraid to think outside the church box, Marshfield UMC's online ministry may be just the place for you.
Welcome to The Streams!
Rev. Kim Polchow, Pastor
Nicholas Roberts, Tech Director
We like the chance to know who we're worshipping with so we can build meaningful relationships at your pace. First time guests get asked a few more questions so we can send you a welcome gift. Keep an eye out for that bright orange mailer with our logo!
If your schedule allows, you might enjoy the experience of worshiping at the same time as others by watching the premier of each service at 8:30 AM CST. All of our services are available at any time.
