Do I have to be a member to come?
Absolutely not. Our church has no secrets and anyone can participate in almost every area of church life.
What is expected of me in a worship service?
The expectation for you is to simply enjoy worship. We know it takes time for people to be at ease in any new situation, including worship. Participate when you feel comfortable and feel free to ask questions so as to enhance your worship experience.
Is there a dress code?
Absolutely not. Casual dress to business attire.
When are the Worship Services?
Sunday morning worship is at 10:00 am. We follow the time-honored and comfortable liturgy that people have grown up with. Songs are sung out of our hymnal and are accompanied by an organ and piano. The Parish Choir sings at the 10:00 am service. We also have a smaller, less formal Chapel service on Sunday evening at 5:00 p.m.
What happens during worship?
The main components are: singing, prayers, sermon, a time of offering, and special music. On the first Sunday of each month, we also have Holy Communion.
What is “Holy Communion”?
Holy Communion is a sacrament, a sacred moment, when we all “commune” with each other by sharing bread and in our tradition, grape juice. These “elements” represent and help us remember the body and blood of Christ and His sacrifice for us on the cross. In the United Methodist Church, all are welcome to participate if they feel comfortable doing so.
What about children?
Children of all ages ARE welcome in worship. A little noise from our little ones just adds to the joy of the morning! About midway through the service, all children 3-year-old through 1st grade who would like to be a part of Children’s Church are invited to go with one of our leaders for a more age-appropriate message (Children's Church).
If you have small children and if you prefer, you are welcome to leave them in our nursery, located to the right of church offices at the back of the sanctuary. Our ushers or greeters will be glad to show you where the nursery is located.
