online & in-person
We are so excited to be back in our sanctuary! We currently hold two in-person Sunday services, one at 9 am and one at 11 am. Our 11:00 service will also be livestreamed for those who wish to join us from home or later in the day or week. Click Here for more information about Virtual Church.
While we are back in our building, our return to 'normalcy' will be gradual. Currently, both services will feature the same hymns and/or contemporary Christian music, with special music presentations by our Chancel Choir at the 11:00 service. Eventually, we will see our Joyful Noise Praise Band return to the 9:00 service, which is traditionally our 'contemporary' service. We'll announce these changes as we are able.
Per CDC recommendations, masks are no longer required during in-person services or church events.
We encourage all to greet one another with a hand to the heart, and simply ask before reaching out for a hug or handshake.
Join us for coffee hour in the Wesley Room between the 9:00 and 11:00 services! Sign up in the Wesley Room to host a coffee hour and provide the edible treats. (Drinks are provided by the church.)
Nursery, PreK-12G Sunday School
Our Nursery is currently open during both services for children ages 0-3. We currently hold one Sunday school class for children PreK-5th grade, and one class for youth 6th grade-12 grade. Youth Sunday school classes are held during the 9:00 service. See an usher for directions to classrooms.
Serve on Sundays
Anyone interested in serving as Lay Readers, Ushers, or AV Techs are invited to contact the office or Jes Houk for more information. All ages are welcome!
As part of our commitment to Radical Hospitality, accessibility for all is a priority at FUMC. Working in a 160-year-old building presents unique challenges to ensuring all can access our services.
Access the church and sanctuary stair-free by entering at the south Bonnie Reid entrance (location of the taxi drop-off, ramp, and automatic door) and through the Aldersgate Room to the Sanctuary. Unfortunately, there is only stair access to the upstairs Sunday School rooms and basement. Sunday services and most activities are generally held on the ground level; an usher will be happy to help with escorting children up or downstairs to Sunday school.
Our bulletins are available online and can be accessed from home to print out or with a smart device to view during service to allow for those with visual impairments to zoom in as needed. The Long Form bulletin includes full a full text of all service parts for those with hearing impairments who prefer to read along.
