WORSHIP

 

To our Guests– Welcome!

You  are welcome to join us for worship on Sundays at 10 am or on Facebook Live on our FB page. We welcome 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.

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!
  • Sunday School will resume May 2nd at 9:00am.
  • 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!
  • If you have not made a reservation beforehand please provide your contact information in the event contact tracing is necessary. Online reservations can be made via the links on our http://cumcshelby.org/worship/services/ page or you may call the office at 704-487-6336 during office hours.
  • 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.
