The focus of our Sports & Fitness Ministry at McEachern Memorial United Methodist Church is best defined by II Corinthians 4:18 “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

Emphasis is placed on Christ-likeness. Our Ministry seeks to strengthen adults, children and their families by maximizing ministry opportunities through exposing participants to Scripture-based devotions during each program.

The Fitness Center is now open!

The fitness center and walking track are open from 6 am – 9 pm Monday – Saturday, and 1 pm – 9 pm Sunday.
