Sunday Mornings at First United Methodist
Whether you’ve attended church your entire life or never been at all, we know it’s not easy visiting a church for the first time. We want to provide the best experience possible, from the moment you walk up to the building or drive into our lighted parking lot in the back of the church on the corner of Lapham and 75th Streets. So what is a Sunday morning like at First United Methodist Church?
• A Reserved Parking Space
Look for the Welcome sign in the parking lot. A parking space is reserved for you. You will be greeted at the door.
• A Warm Greeting
A heart felt greeting is part of what makes a church a church. Our greeters will welcome you as you enter the door. They will help you find a seat, or help locate the nursery or a Sunday School classroom for your children. No matter what questions you might have, they are there to answer them. Complimentary gourmet coffee is served near the entrance to the worship center for all our guests.
Our worship services include lots of music. We love music, all kinds of music and we use music to show our Lord how much we love and honor Him. We have several choirs, bell ringing choirs and instrumental ensembles that add their musical talents to our worship services in addition to traditional hymns. Services in July 2017 have featured a classical violinist, a bell choir presentation of a medley of Beatles songs, and a vocalist singing Elvis’ hit song, “Jail House Rock.”
Before or after our worship service, join us for some gourmet coffee and Christian fellowship in a casual atmosphere where friendships can develop and relationships deepen. This is a great time to experience our church family and ask questions. Expect people to notice you, introduce themselves and reach out to you in love and conversation. A church is about joy, the kind of joy that comes from a real connection with God and others.
When are services?
We have two services every Sunday at 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Each service lasts about an hour, and you should arrive 15 minutes early if you have children. That will give you plenty of time to check them into our staffed nursery before the service begins. Greeters at the front door will help direct you.
What should I wear?
Whatever you want! We welcome jeans, t-shirts, ties, tuxedos…you get the idea. Come as you are for any worship service.
