Welcome to the Hocking Hills United Methodist Church in Logan, Ohio.

We are glad you have chosen to visit us. We have been waiting for YOU.  We believe that every person is loved and valued by God and is invited into His family. It is not by accident that you have landed on this web page to visit us. I hope you take the time to explore the current and upcoming ministries that Hocking Hills UMC can offer to you and your family.

It won’t take you long to discover that this is a truly great place to be. The Hocking Hills is surrounded by the natural beauty of nature and inspiring historical landmarks. The Hocking Hills United Methodist Church is in the heart of this magnificent beauty  and it is filled with many life transforming God stories. Our God story continues to unfold as we grow together through worship, humble service, and Christ-centered teaching. We yearn to reach out to our world through Christian action. This is what Jesus calls us to do.

We are reaching out for you, too!  Our doors are open and we anticipate welcoming you “home”.  If you have been praying, searching and seeking for a place to belong…we say “Come on in to Hocking Hills UMC, it is a great place to be”.

What to Expect:

Worship Services

The Journey – Traditional – (9:00 am):

We are all on a journey.  It started at birth and continues for the rest of our lives.  Along this journey we are hopeful to experience opportunities for growth.  Worship is a vital part of our journey and opportunity to grow.  Worship is an important part of the journey in the Christian life here at Hocking Hills United Methodist Church.  At the Journey, God is praised through a variety of Christian songs including traditional hymns.  We also share a Bible based message; a time of prayer; and God’s love, comfort, and grace are made new through the Holy Spirit.  In our traditional service you will also experience worship singers, praise ensemble, and bell choir.  Participants are charged to go forth and live as Disciples of Christ.

The Harbor – Contemporary – (11:00 am):

Often times we mistake church on Sundays to be a little bit of time spent with God. In all actuality, church on Sundays is meant to be a place where followers of Jesus Christ can come together and worship, pray, serve, learn, and give together in fellowship with one another. It’s not a garrison we retreat to, but a harbor where we resupply, rest, and prepare ourselves for our next journey. At “The Harbor”, worship looks a little different than you may be used to. There is a praise band that leads us in passionate worship. That transitions into a message from one of our pastors that you can apply to your life today; all of which is saturated in prayer. Worship freely, learn deeply, and pray with expectation.

Worship takes place at the Logan-Hocking Middle School which is located at 1 Middle School Drive Logan, OH 43138
