Worship Services

Connect through Worship

From our vision statement . . .

To adore and praise God, inwardly and outwardly.

We believe this happens best through Christian community.

At Christ UMC worship services we approach God communally and individually through prayer, song, and Holy Communion. Our services include readings, Scripture, and sermon based on the week’s lectionary text. We enjoy multi-generational worship. Our children and youth are included through our Children’s Time, Junior Choir, and Acolyte program. Childcare is available at both services. The music of our Sanctuary Choir, Cathedral Handbell Choir, Junior Choir, Ensembles, and Soloists move us to reflect on the grace and love of our God.

If you would like to join us for a worship service, we meet each Sunday at 8 and 10:30 a.m. Holy Communion is served during worship services on the first Sunday of each month and every Wednesday at noon.

Christ UMC sings the following at the close of most worship services. We pray Christ’s shalom for you as well.

Shalom to you now, shalom, my friends.
May God’s full mercies bless you, my friends.
In all your living and through your loving,
Christ be your shalom, Christ be your shalom.
