What are services like at First United Methodist Church?
Classic Worship in the Sanctuary (Summer – 9:30; Beginning 9/18/16 – 8:45 & 10:00 a.m. )
The tradition of classic worship at First Church is strong and rich. The resources of historic hymns, scripture, prayer, and preaching that strives to be both faithful to the gospel and engaging to the contemporary mind all play a part. The strong music ministry of First Church with stirring organ music, periodic Choral Masterwork Sundays, and the regular presence of the church’s noted Chancel Choir adds a crucial element to the mix.
The Open Door at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater at 11:15 am (10 a.m. on 9/11/16 followed by all-church Picnic)
This contemporary service uses modern technology and up-to-date language to bring God’s message to God’s people. The Common Ground Band leads participants in a wide variety of music, including pop, soul, and jazz. Dress is casual, and the atmosphere is relaxed and family-friendly. Grab a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and get ready for a spiritual experience relevant to your life. The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is located 1/2 block west of the church on Kirkwood Avenue.
