Pastor's Greeting


Welcome to the Web presence for the DeMotte United Methodist Church!  I am glad you stopped by.  The DeMotte UMC is a gathering of God’s people for the purposes of exalting and praising God, sharing the good news of abundant life through Jesus Christ, being instructed from God’s holy Word, utilizing our spiritual gifts, and supporting one another through regular prayer and fellowship.  As we express these purposes in a variety of ministries, we find that God guides and directs us – His faithfulness, as the Bible says, “stretches to the skies.” 

DeMotte is a growing town of about 4,000 people located in Northwestern Indiana (Jasper County), famous for its blueberry farms and Dutch heritage.  With easy access to Chicago, Merrillville and Valparaiso, combined with the sense of a close-knit and family-friendly atmosphere, its simple to see why DeMotte is great place to live, work, and worship.

I invite you to come and visit us, explore the depths of faith in Christ, and connect with others who share a common passion for knowing Christ and making Him known!

Grace and peace,

    Pastor Larry Saunders
