Christianity seems to be in crisis, with denominations dwindling and splitting, rocked with scandal, and more and more irrelevant to daily life. What we need is a spiritual revolution. Join us on Sunday mornings as we use love as our guide as we explore how God can bring a revolution to our life and our church.
Worship at First UMC is welcome to everyone! We start at 10:00am ad usually last about an hour. There is a nursery for restless little ones, children's Sunday school during service for age 5-14 after the children's sermon during worship.
We pray, sing, stand, sit and we end each service by receiving Communion. As United Methodists we welcome all people to participate in Communion whether or not you've been a member of a church, baptized or not, you and your children are welcome to the table.
Every Sunday we take time to Worship by receiving Holy Communion. Throughout the centuries the Church has celebrated this sacred sacrament. In the UMC we believe that Holy Communion was instituted by Jesus as a "means of grace", which means that it is a way that God offers us grace. Although, grace is available at any time God choses to act graciously towards us, Jesus has promised that when we receive Holy Communion we can be assured that God is acting graciously towards us. We believe that the bread and wine can be taken in a number of different ways. We chose intinction (we dip the bread in a common cup). We also believe that the bread and wine do not belong to the Church but are God's means of grace and therefore everyone is welcome to receive them regardless of their church membership.
