Here’s what you can expect if you come to worship with us:
Coming into the church from Pine Street there is a sheltered entrance where you can drive up to drop someone off at the handicapped accessible front door. Inside you’ll move past the church library, pastor’s office, and church office on the way to the sanctuary where worship services are held. The back of the worship area opens to Cottrill Fellowship Hall, where there is another handicapped accessible entrance/exit by the kitchen that leads to the parking/driveway on the north side of the building. Additional parking can be found in the lot at the west end of the building.
On Sundays this Summer worship starts at 9:00 AM. Our worship service is about an hour long and is relaxed but traditional in nature. The words to all prayers, responses, and hymns are projected on screen in the sanctuary. We take time to share our joys and concerns for prayer. The pastor’s sermon will relate to the scripture readings that are used in the service. Offering plates are available at the back and front of the sanctuary to support the mission and ministry of the church. Once a month we offer worship on Monday night at 6:30 PM.
Holy Communion will usually be received during worship on the first Sunday of the month. The United Methodist Church has an ‘open’ communion table – which means that you can receive Holy Communion even if you’re not a member of this congregation, or even our denomination. We are currently using individual sealed chalices to limit handling of the elements.
