Worship is at the heart of all that we do! Our primary reason for gathering is to worship God, but the work of the church does not stop there. We make and share lasting friendships. We learn the needs of others and find compassion to help meet those needs. We are served during our special times of need by those who have knelt with us at Holy Communion, participated with us in baptisms, joined with us in congregational prayer and sung with us the great hymns and songs of the church.
Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month at all services. Everyone is welcome at the table, for it is not a Methodist table, but the Table of the Lord. The church, on Communion Sundays, also collects non-perishable food to donate to local food pantries.
Guests who would like to know more about our church and our ministries are invited to stop by the Guest Center in the Sanctuary foyer or the Family Life Center’s main entrance before or after the service for a gift. A friendly church member will help answer any questions you may have and can assist you in finding a pastor to meet with you if that would be helpful. Please don’t hesitate to ask us to help you find a place in this congregation.
Children are welcome at all services, as we love to see them attend worship services with their parents. Little ones remind us what’s truly important in this life — the future of our children. To make the experience more meaningful for you and your child, consider these tips:
*Sit in a section of the church where your child can see what’s going on and you can make easy exits and returns. Folks don’t mind if your little one fusses a bit or gets a case of the wiggles.
*Quietly explain what’s happening in the service to help them understand and remain interested.
*Bring along some favorite picture books or snacks when your child needs a distraction.
*Remember, even if you are only able to stay for a few minutes, your child will begin to understand that worship is important to you and available to them, too.
*During children’s time, don’t hesitate to come down with your child if they are uncomfortable. Just like in any new situation, it takes time for them to become comfortable enough to leave your side. We love your children just like you do, but they may not know it yet.
Worship bags (often called “busy bags”) are available for preschool and elementary-age children at our weekly worship services. Please see an usher for assistance.
