Sunday mornings at First UMC combine traditional elements of ritual and order with a warm spirit, vital prayer, and theologically progressive preaching. This service incorporates music, the arts, prayer, and Scripture into a service with life-giving energy.  The Chancel Choir and occasionally the Bell Choir offer their gifts to this service in leading parts of the music, and often the music accompaniment ranges from pipe organ, trumpet, flute, harp, and grand piano, to wooden flute, bells, and guitar. Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month.*

Children of all ages are always welcome in worship! Worship is inter-generational. We also offer the Early Childhood Room (Nursery) for children up to age 3, and our Sunday School which begins after the Children's Time (named the Story for All Ages) for children PreK through 6th Grade. For more information about Sunday morning offerings for children and youth, please visit the Children and Youth Ministry pages. Fellowship time follows worship in the Fellowship Hall. Everyone is always welcome!

For balance, stress reduction, spiritual wellness, self-awareness, time out of busy lives, join this worship circle at any time.  "Be still and know that I am God."   Still Point is a contemplative worship service that weaves together scriptural passages, readings from various sources, prayer, and calm centering music with a time of meditation. A time to enter into a place of tranquility to be still and present with the sustaining, unifying, connecting, source that is God. Holy Communion is served each Wednesday throughout the fall, and at least monthly (the 3rd Wednesday) during winter and spring.*

Still Point will NOT meet on Wednesday, April 24, 2019

*In the United Methodist Church, Holy Communion is served at an open table. This means that everyone who wants to come and receive communion is welcome to do so. You do not have to be a member of the church or a United Methodist. All are welcome to receive God's grace through the bread and juice.
