I’m New


We’re glad you’re interested in learning more about the Ozark United Methodist Church! Maybe you’ve already attended a service or maybe you’re interested in learning more about us first, either way, we welcome you.

What to Expect On Sunday Mornings

From the time you pull in the parking lot on Sunday morning, we hope you feel at home and find something for everyone in your family. So grab a cup of coffee from the Coffee House, get your kids situated in Children’s Worship or the nursery, and find your spot in the Worship Center as you make yourself at home. We hope you’ll find a place where you and your family can feel safe and learn about God in a real and relevant way.

Find our more about our worship services here.

Learn more about our Pastor, Steve Blacksher, and his story here. You can also listen to his prior messages here.

What to Wear

Wear whatever you want and you are comfortable in!  You’ll find people dressed in everything from casual to formal, but you don’t have to dress up – come as you are.


For kids birth through 6th grade, we invite you to read more here.


For students in grade 7 and up, you can find more information here. We also invite you to visit the youth Facebook page.


You can find more information about adult discipleship opportunities here.

What’s Next?

You’ve attended Sunday worship services, and now you want to get more connected. But how? Great question! We suggest attending a “Next Step” meeting.  Occurring once a quarter on Sunday mornings, “Next Step” is the best way to learn more about Ozark UMC and the variety of ways you can make a deeper connection with God in our congregation. Check our calendar here for an upcoming “Next Step” meeting, or call the church office, 417-581-6853 for more information.
