sign2Welcome to Forest Lake United Methodist Church!  We’re located in the heart of Tuscaloosa, Alabama in the Forest Lake community near University Place Elementary School.

Forest Lake United Methodist (FLUM) is a growing community of faith with a long history of outreach in the Tuscaloosa area and missions around the world.

We are:

Christ Followers
Creating the Life God Intends

Our mission is to:

Discover, develop and deploy people
to use their gifts to meet real needs
to transform the community

Our values are:

  • Christ is at the center of all we do.
  • The Bible is our guide.
  • Integrity—what we say, what we do, and what we desire are aligned.
  • We are transparent at every level of ministry, making as much information as possible available to all who want it.
  • Incarnational—we are the Body of Christ present in the community.
  • We value people over policy.

With both traditional and contemporary Sunday morning services, we offer a variety of ways to worship. Our Wednesday evening "Midweek" meals are followed by opportunities for all age groups to study the Bible and strengthen their faith and we have Bible studies at other times throughout the week. We are also actively involved in outreach and mission activities which serve those in need in our city, state, and the world. We would love for you to help us share God’s love by becoming involved with us.

We’re glad you’re visiting us on the web and we would love for you to visit us in person!
