All are welcome in worship at First UMC! "Worship" means knowing that God is worthy of our praise and admiration...and then gathering together to do just that! Exciting, challenging, biblically-based sermons, inspirational music, and participation in Holy Communion and Baptism are part of our worship. Worship is a "means of grace," and gives us opportunities to learn what it means to be a follower of Jesus and to experience God's saving grace first hand. Love, forgiveness, mercy, grace, peace...these are all gifts of the Spirit waiting for you in worship!
Holy Communion is served during all Sunday morning worship services the first Sunday of each month. You don't have to be a member of this church or any church to receive Holy Communion. The Lord's Table is open to all who seek a relationship with Jesus Christ.
These services include traditional,time honored hymns of the church as well as newer musical settings. The services use a classic pattern of worship while speaking to the heart of today’s culture. Musical presentations include a variety of choirs and ensembles, instrumentalists, and special guests. Like all of the other services, our pastors present life -applicable preaching that speaks to the issues that we face today. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and the people generally dress anywhere from casual to “Sunday best.”
