Who We Are

Nameoki United Methodist Church is a vibrant and devoted United Methodist Church, located on Pontoon Road in Granite City, Illinois. Nameoki UMC was chartered in 1950, two years after the superintendent at the time, Dr. H. G. Hurley, asked members of Niedringhaus Methodist Church to help start a church in the Nameoki area of Granite City.

The United Methodist Church was formed when the Evangelical United Brethren Church and the Methodist Church merged in 1968. The Methodist Church traces its roots back to two brothers, John and Charles Wesley, who were sons of an Anglican priest father and a devoted Christian mother. From a small movement in 1700s England, our church is now global with more than 12 million members around the world. While our languages, cultures and nations of origin may differ, a common mission and history unite us in powerful ways. The United Methodist Church is Wesleyan, missional and connected.
