Worship at First UMC

Welcome to First UMC Worship in the U.S. over the last 40 years has undergone some dramatic changes and updates. Some have been positive and some negative. Some well-received, and some not well-received at all. Article 22 in The United Methodist Discipline, titled "Of the Rites and Ceremonies of Churches," states, "It is not necessary that rites and ceremonies should in all places be the same, or exactly alike, for they have been always different, and may be changed according to the diversity of countries, times, and (culture changes), so that nothing be ordained against God's Word....Every particular church may ordain, change, or abolish rites and ceremonies, so that all things be done to edification (spiritual and moral learning)."

Some changes in worship styles have taken place here at First Church as well. Our worship style is called a "blended" style in that we blend hymns and songs into our worship experience on most Sunday mornings. This helps us address the preferences of members who've been a part of our church for quite a while, as well as addressing the needs of the new people who will be joining our congregation now and in the future.

We use bulletins and a screen. We use organ and piano, keyboards, guitars and drums. We serve Holy Communion on first Sundays of each month, and we baptize babies and believers. A sermon is preached nearly every Sunday; we have a children's sermon, special music, and we take up an offering of our tithes and special giving. We pray, and we talk about "Where Have We Seen Jesus" over the previous week. And we are constantly learning how we uphold the vow of membership: to support our church with our prayers, with our presence, with our financial giving, with our service and with our witness.
