Come Join Us For Worship!
We offer two worship services on Sunday mornings, at 8:30 and 11:00. Although the formats differ as stated below, the pastor gives the same sermon at each.
WUMC is not a formal church at either service. The choir does not wear robes and the pastor wears a robe only on special occasions. Dress at both services is “come as you feel comfortable”. You will see some people in coats & ties and dresses, and others in jeans and tee shirts. Both services are multi-generational and multi-racial. A nursery is provided for all services for infants and children up to 2 years old, but children are always welcome to stay in the worship service.
We come together for a joint worship service at 10:00 on the first Sunday of each month. We call this “Unity Sunday”, because we celebrate that we are once church family even though we may prefer different styles of worship. We conclude these services by gathering around the Lord’s table for Holy Communion, again remembering that we are one body, His body. As a United Methodist congregation, we observe an open table, which means that everyone is welcome to receive the elements at the Lord’s table, regardless of church membership or denominational affiliation. After the worship service, we usually gather together in our Fellowship Hall for lunch.
Below is some specific information on each service to help you decide which you might prefer:
8:30 Traditional Service
This service is a more traditional style. We sing traditional hymns, accompanied by the piano. Our choir offers an anthem, and occasionally we enjoy special music provided by a soloist, small group or instrumentalist.
There is a brief children’s message during the service, but usually there is no Children’s Church during this service.
11:00 Contemporary Service:
This service is a bit more contemporary. We begin with a time of Praise and Worship led by our Praise Band and choir, and our choir presents an anthem later in the service. The Praise Band usually provides music for the offertory and closing, and we are frequently blessed by soloists or small groups. The service flows swiftly, and many people feel free to worship a bit more openly, clapping or raising their hands in praise.
There is a brief children’s message during the service, usually followed by Children’s Church for ages 3 to 6.
