Worship Services

The heart of our church is in Sunday worship.

Sunday Worship Service is at  10:30 am during the school year.  Beginning Memorial Day weekend, the Summer Sunday Worship Service is at  9:30 a.m.

All are invited  for coffee and fellowship in Wesley Hall directly across from the Sanctuary following worship.

Worship Style

Our worship services are designed to create an environment that brings The Word of God and the teachings of Christ into the hearts and minds of the congregation through drama, art, dance, music, and personal experience.  We celebrate time honored traditions and  create new ones with beauty and pageantry.

Sacrament of Holy Communion

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is offered on the first Sunday of every month ,  Our table is open to ALL, including children, whatever your religious background.

Worship with Children

First Church extends a special welcome for families and has a growing population of families with young children who are new to the area. Our church is certified as a United Methodist “Safe Sanctuary” congregation.  

Nursery Care for infants and toddlers is professionally staffed and available  year-round  on Sunday mornings.

The Quiet Room.  A space in the back of the Sanctuary has comfortable rockers for parents of infants.

 Children’s Word. During the service, we offer a Children’s Word with age-appropriate Bible stories and lessons for children. Following Children’s Word, young children may choose to remain in the sanctuary for the service, or dismiss to the Sunshine Room, a special professionally staffed play area.

Joyful Noise Singers. Children are encouraged to sing  in a relaxed choral group  which will perform during worship from time to time

Church School for children and youth (ages 3 through 12th grade)  is held from 9:15-10:15 am during the school year. 

Additionally, the church schedules a number of child-friendly events during the year for fun and fellowship for children and their parents.
