Guidelines for In-Person Worship - Connections Article from Dr. Jim Sanders

Two Services Every Sunday Morning at 8:55am

We currently have two service times each Sunday morning. We have our traditional service at 8:55 in the Sanctuary, and we have a contemporary service (The Bridge) at 8:55 in the Fellowship Hall.

Our Sanctuary service features responsive readings, prayer, wonderful hymns of faith with a chancel choir, soloists, and instrumentalists, and a powerful sermon from Scripture

The Bridge service features our praise band, “Promise” who leads in praise and worship through song, Scripture reading and prayer, followed by a powerful sermon from Scripture.

To see what either of these services is like, please click the links below to view the live stream archives and see previous worship services. 



If you have never been a part of a First United Methodist Church small group, we invite you to join with us this Fall in a new Bible study. We have groups who will meet in person and some that will meet online only. Please click the link below to see the list of studies that began in September, and sign up to join us! We hope you will connect with others in-person or online!
