WORSHIP

To our Visitors and Guests– Welcome!

We welcome visitors and guests to Central United Methodist Church in the same spirit of hospitality that Jesus showed throughout his earthly ministry when he encouraged, fellowshipped, and ministered with/to all he encountered. The Central UMC family embraces all God’s children as fellow partakers in the kingdom of God. We take seriously our responsibility and commitment to joyful hospitality, as set forth in examples from both Testaments. (Genesis 18:1-15; Matthew 15:22-28; Mark 10:13-16; Luke 15:11-32) We greet visitors and guests during the announcements at the beginning of each service. Visitors are invited to note their presence among us by registering in our attendance pads.

What to expect on your first Sunday morning visit with us:

  • Come to the parking lot by the playground where there are reserved parking spaces for our “Sunday Visitors.”
  • Please COME AS YOU ARE!
  • You will be greeted at the door by our friendly, helpful Hospitality Team of Greeters.
  • Sunday School will begin at 9:00am. Please ask the greeters to help you find the right class for you!
  • Stay a few minutes after Sunday School or come to the Worship Service a little early to enjoy snacks, coffee, and juice in the Fellowship Hall at 9:45am.
  • The 10:00am service is open to all and will offer you a worship experience unlike any other, with a time for children, a strong focus on prayer, a blend of musical offerings featuring many of our talented church members, and a message that will revive your spirit for the week ahead!
  • When we celebrate Holy Communion, we practice an “Open Table,” meaning that ALL are invited to partake of the bread and juice, regardless of denomination or age.
