10:45 AM Traditional Sunday Worship Service
10:45 service is held in-person and streamed online via YouTube. Masks are highly encouraged indoors. If you are feeling unwell, please join us online.
If you are looking for a vibrant, spirit-filled service with a relevant message and strong musical heritage, then our 10:45 AM service in the Sanctuary will nourish your soul.
Experience the expected…. and the unexpected! While our pastors and Chancel Choir may be wearing robes, the 10:45 service builds on and enhances Methodist church traditions.
Music is an integral part of our worship celebration
In addition to our chancel choir and Merritt Speidel Organ that feature in every service, FUMC has a handbells group and chamber group, Fiume di Musica, that play regularly once a month.
Message and reflection
You’ll hear God’s good news proclaimed with passion and joy, and you’ll be motivated by creative and strategic thinking about how we all can integrate Christ’s mission into the life of the larger community. Every 10:45 service features a sermon and words of prayer and preparation to fit the week’s theme.
Children are always welcome to join us in worship
Every service features a special Children’s Sermon. Young children are invited to Noah’s Ark Nursery during the latter half of the service, and activity packets are available for children 6 and older.
