Pour Theology

Pour Theology (pun intended) is just as simple and wonderful as it sounds: we enjoy great craft beer together (or not – if you’re not a beer drinker, that’s okay too) and we enjoy music that means so much to our hearts!  We are an open, non-judgmental community where everyone (and we mean everyone) is welcome.

We especially welcome all those folks who might have experienced PTCD (post-traumatic church disorder), or who might have had a negative experience with churches in the past.  We aren’t here to preach to you, tell you how bad you are, or even to try to get you to join our church. We just want to enjoy the experience of bringing people together for a good purpose. 

We meet on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 4:30 p.m. at Footnotes (Behind Foothills Brewery). This is a kid-friendly and come-as-you-are environment.  Pour Theology is an extensional ministry of Ardmore UMC but theologically appropriate for anyone and everyone as we are about connecting people to God, each other, and the community.


The church office at Ardmore is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm, and from 9:00 am until noon on Friday.  Many of our staff work outside of regular business hours but are always connected via email.   The church office phone is 336.723.3695 and each staff member has a voicemail box and extensions are listed below. 

If you need to get in touch with us in an emergency outside of regular office hours, please use the email addresses below.
