Currently the church offers three different styles of worship. For youth and adults, we have traditional and contemporary worship on Sunday mornings. Our 8:30am service is a spirited traditional style of worship lead by a choir employing the use of creeds, liturgy, traditional hymns, and instrumental special music. The 11:00 am service is driven by a worship band playing the latest in contemporary worship music. For children, a service specially designed for them (and their parents!) happens at 10:00am called FX. This high energy event includes singing, drama, dancing, video and all the trimmings that make it a hit with children of ALL ages. In addition to Sunday morning worship, teens will find an experience crafted to their needs at Sunday Night Live which contains a strong worship component. Led by their peers, a band energizes the crowd with great music and the prayers, and other liturgical elements are present. The youth director shares a brief sermon that sets up small group activities. At each of these worship experiences you are likely to find film clips, multi-media presentations, drama, and other events to engage the congregation in a worship experience that glorifies God.
Interested in coming? Here’s what you need to know:
- Dress is informal. Come as you are, even for our traditional service.
- The services start on time, but many people come early and spend time in our lobby area enjoying sweets and conversation.
- We want to call everyone by name so we invite everyone to fill out a name-tag at the front door.
- We offer child care and children’s ministry options for all services.
You will find your place to belong at one of our service. There is a high level of lay person involvement in worship. Messages are meant to be functional as we seek to work out our own salvation through Jesus Christ on our spiritual journey. You can expect to hear good theology, but also walk away with ways to incorporate the gospel in your everyday life.
As you enter underneath the large portico on the west side of the building you are invited to fill out a name tag. We endeavor to call each person by name, so helping your neighbor out with a readable name tag is helpful. Come as you are, dress in whatever way you feel is appropriate. Some people dress up, others dress down. Most attenders wear business casual attire, though you will also find some ties and dresses with a fair share of shorts and flip flops.
Relationships are the heartbeat of our congregation, so come and find your place at South Shore United Methodist Church.
