I was searching for a place that would encourage my family’s faith journey. We have found that at Morton United Methodist Church!
There are many wonderful things about Morton United Methodist Church but my favorite is the paper prayer chain hanging on the Common Room wall. Seeing the prayer chain lifts my spirits! I put my troubles on the back burner for a little bit, reminded that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is ALWAYS there–guiding us to solutions that will take those blues away!
My dad (John Lindquist) grew up in the United Methodist church in Kansas and my mom (Elaine Lindquist) was raised Presbyterian in Colorado. When they were transferred by Caterpillar to Peoria, they fell in love with the Morton United Methodist Church–their home away from home. Many of the people they met in church during that time continue to be dear friends today.
The Holy Spirit is definitely alive at Morton UMC!!! From the beautiful music of the choir to the heart-felt sermons, I feel close to the Spirit of the Lord!
Worship service leaves us feeling excited and passionate about our Christian walk. It’s great to feel a sense of connection to the scripture and how it applies to our everyday lives.

We will always hold dear the former church building on Carol Street, the site of our baptisms, confirmations, my marriage to John Walters 20 years ago by Pastor Gary Bass, and the baptism of our four children. Yet we realize the building is only a structure; what means most is the connections we…
My husband and I attended the Morton Methodist Church for two years or so when they were meeting at the downtown Civic Building. When the church building was completed, we took the big step and were in one of the first groups to join in April 1952, which basically turned our lives around, and we have been so blessed to be part of a fellowship of believers. I have had 61 years of spiritual gro…
Raising our family here has been a lot of fun; to watch them be involved and be accepted by our church family at every stage has been a blessing! It’s a good Bible-preaching church, not only on Sundays but with many opportunities for study and fellowship throughout the week.
I came because I was invited; I stayed because I found what I was looking for!
