|Worship @ First UMC|
First United Methodist Church offers two distinct types of worship services on Sunday mornings. We hope you will take advantage of one or both of them. The congregation and staff feel truly blessed to have the ability to offer these distinct types of worship on Sunday mornings. This allows each of us, no matter where we are in our walk with Christ, to be able to worship and praise His name in a way that is comfortable to us. Holy Communion is served the first Sunday of each month at both of our worship services and all worship services are held in the sanctuary.
"THE CROSS AND
FLAME" BLENDED WORSHIP ▪ 8:15 AM
Our Blended service offers worshipers the very best in favorite hymns and new praise choruses in a less formal setting. The Sanctuary Choir, directed by Laura Ramseyer, provides music each week. The projection system is used to enhance worship through showing movie clips, providing words to songs, and for sermon illustrations.
CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP ▪ 10:45 AM
Worship at the Contemporary service features modern worship music led each week by a talented praise team made up of drums, guitars, keyboards, vocals in praising God in a "fresh" way using contemporary music and playing hymns in a contemporary way. The projection technology is used for songs, sermon notes, video, and special presentations. People are invited to come as they are and praise our Father in an less-formal, friendly setting.
