Worship is a time when we praise God and seek to focus on God and what God desires for us in our lives. Worship is at the center of all our community life as United Methodists, whether on Sunday morning, small groups, children and youth ministry, committee and board meetings.
Sunday morning worship is neither wholly “traditional” nor totally “contemporary,” yet our worship is at the same time both. The emphasis is on variety, and we seek to make use of the best elements of all styles in accord with the gifts and talents of the people who participate. We encourage people to get involved in worship using the gifts that God has given them, and there are numerous opportunities to become involved in and serve at worship.
