Worship

You matter to us. We've worked hard to provide a wide variety of worship styles to create a space for you and your family to connect with God. Traditional worship is held in our beautiful Gothic Sanctuary and Contemporary Worship is held in our freshly renovated Fellowship Hall. Each one of our worship services have something unique to offer. See more about our services below to help decide which one might be right for you.

TRADITIONAL WORSHIP

Two Traditional Worship services are held each Sunday morning at 8:30AM and 11:00AM in our beautiful Gothic Sanctuary, which faces South Main Street. Both services feature liturgy and the great hymns of the faith, accompanied by our magnificent Casavant pipe organ. Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month.

8:30 Traditional

This service is identical to the 11:00AM service with the exception of Kids Worship and choir. This service features special music with soloists accompanied by our magnificent Casavant pipe organ or grand piano. Together we recite creeds and prayers such as The LORD's Prayer and Apostles' Creed, and hear a scripture reading and message from one of our Pastors.

11:00 Traditional

This service features special music with choir and soloists accompanied by our magnificent Casavant pipe organ or grand piano. Together we recite creeds and prayers such as The LORD's Prayer and Apostles' Creed, and hear a scripture reading and message from one of our Pastors. Kid’s Worship is available during this service with children being dismissed about 15 minutes into the service.

CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP

We offer two contemporary worship services each Sunday morning in our Fellowship Hall. These services are held at 9:01AM and 11:00AM. Both services feature worship music led by one of our two worship bands. Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. Our 901 service is streamed online and can be watched here.
The 9:01 service at First United Methodist Church is a blended contemporary service for all ages. The relaxed atmosphere in our Fellowship Hall enables the body of Christ to worship without worrying about sitting up straight in the pew for an hour. The service begins and ends before Sunday School, which helps a lot of folks get on with the rest of their day. Scott Hagan and Stephanie Smith work hard to provide meaningful, pertinent Biblically-focused sermon series that fuel our desire to serve Jesus Christ and to lead the Spirit filled lives God intends for us to live. The 9:01 Band incorporates a variety of Christian music into each service, including today’s contemporary Christian music, older contemporary Christian music, and many of our favorite Gospel hymns. The preaching and music are enhanced by the use of our audio-visual capabilities in the Fellowship Hall, and the breakfast snacks and coffee could not be better!  The only thing missing right now…is YOU!  Join us this Sunday at 9:01AM – Now is the time to worship!

CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP

Revive is our church's newest worship service born from our desire to do whatever we can to change lives, transform our community, and revive the church, and it meets at 11:00AM in our Fellowship Hall. We invite you to come as you are, because, let's be real, could we really be about meeting you where you are if we expected you to dress a certain way? God wants to do great things through you and we believe nobody is beyond God's reach and salvation. We believe in engaging people in conversation: with each other and with God, which, we believe, will lead you to a greater understanding of where God wants you to be. Truthfully, Revive is every bit for us as it is for you because we need to Revive; our church needs to Revive; and we believe that you may need to Revive too. So we hope you will invite somebody and come and connect with us. Grow with us. And Revive with us.
