A multicultural church
Welcome to Alum Rock UMC

A Multicultural, Justice Seeking, Reconciling Congregation

At Alum Rock UMC all are living in unity with the Messiah (Jesus Christ). The people of Alum Rock UMC are real and outrageously committed to Koinonia (Christian fellowship with God and one another). We understand our mission to be "Making Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World."
