cated in downtown Santa Barbara, FUMCSB combines the Coastal California style with its rich tradition of Methodism. Our worship, described as warm traditional, is a reflection of our congregation. We are called to provide a meaningful experience that extends beyond Sunday worship and our outreach extends into our community and around the globe.

If you are visiting Santa Barbara, or if you are new to the area, we would like to extend a personal invitation to you to come and visit. Please know that wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here.

Blessings to you,
Rev. Dr. Hillary Chrisley and Rev. Dr. Alan Strout
