What time is worship? We have in person at 11 am. in the Sanctuary. Masks and social distancing are required. Virtual worship is at 9:30 am every Sunday via Zoom.
How long is the worship service? Worship lasts approximately 45 minutes. Lots of people that come to our worship service like to stay after for a bit and visit with old and new friends over a cup of coffee or tea in the fellowship hall. Fellowship/Social Time during Covid restrictions is virtual. See the home page for details.
Do you have support for those with disabilities? Yes, we have hearing enhancement headsets; large print bulletins, hymnals and Bibles; elevator; worship center is at street level; footrests; and braille bulletins are available if ordered by Thursday before worship.
Is there Sunday School? Yes, adult class (for teens and adults) starts at 9:45 a.m. in the east wing. There are children's classes in the lower level of the south wing at 10:15 a.m. for ages birth through age 12. Youth activities are available for ages 13 and up. Our children's director prepares packets that are distributed to the children that aren't coming in person yet.
Is there childcare? Before Covid restrictions there was a nursery throughout the morning for babies and toddlers in room 110 in the east wing. Check with the office to see if it is available.
What should I wear? At CUMC you will see a mix of styles. Some wear their "Sunday best" and others are more casual in slacks or jeans. We want you to be comfortable as we worship God together. For Zoom worship, you will not be seen, so whatever you prefer.
Where do I park? There is plenty of parking in each of the lots located on the east and west side of the church. We also have a bike rack for the cyclists in our community. Others choose to walk as we are conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood.
Do I have to be a Methodist to attend? Not at all. Many in our congregation come from different backgrounds.
What is a typical service like? We worship in a traditional style with music, prayers, scripture, and preaching. We sing old and new hymns and have classical organ music. We also have an adult choir as well as a handbell choir. Worship is just the beginning of the CUMC worship experience. It equips us for mission and service in our community, our region, and our world. During Covid restrictions, we don't sing as a congregation but we do have music.
Can a visitor take communion? Our communion table is open to everyone who believes in the love of Christ to change our lives. For Zoom services, please feel free to have ready your own juice and bread.
Am I expected to give when the offering plate is passed? As a visitor, you are not expected or obligated to give an offering unless you feel led to do so. Donations made be given here or by mailing a check or put in the plate after the 11 a.m. worship service.
