Welcome

Trying to find a church home can be difficult.

Here at Union United Methodist Church everyone is welcome. Want to know more about us? Come visit us, check out our website, our Facebook page or read on.

In whatever way you choose to learn more about us we believe you will find that we are a good fit for you and pray that you join us in worshipping God.

Our worship service is mainly a traditional service – we sing hymns out of the hymnal and are led by a piano that is occasionally accompanied by guest musicians and choir. That doesn’t mean you won’t ever hear contemporary praise and worship songs – our worship team is always working to find the best music to fit the message for every Sunday.

Words and responses along with the Order of Worship and messages are displayed on large worship monitors to assist our visitors and members throughout the worship service.

Holy Communion is served every Sunday. In following the Methodist tradition, our table is open to all to share communion. We believe partaking of communion is an important part of our worshiping of God and celebrating his Son, Jesus Christ.

We welcome children and youth to join us for our main worship service, which includes a children’s message for any child who wants to come forward for a lesson geared toward them.

You might consider staying after the main worship service to attend one of our classes. We have classes ranging from nursery age children to adult. Each curriculum is age specific. Additionally, we conduct a Bible study on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. We would love for you join us as we dive deeper into God’s Word.

Every Sunday, we take up a collection to support the ministries of the church. If you are a guest, please do not feel obligated to give, although you are welcome to do so if you choose. The members of our congregation have committed to support the church. Supporting the church financially is an act of worship and supports our ministries.

Prayer requests can be made via available prayer request cards at your seat. Simply fill out a card and place it in the offering plate when it is passed. On the card, there is an option to make your request made known publicly or to be kept confidential. If the request is confidential, our pastor will not share the information with anyone else. If it is permitted to be made public, the request will be added to our prayer list that is emailed to many of our members who have committed to praying over these requests.

Guests at our church will never be asked to stand and be recognized. That being said, we would love to get to know you better! If you would like to be contacted, fill out the attendance booklet with whatever contact information you’d like to give the church. Our ushers and worship leaders will be happy to answer any questions you might have about the service or the congregation.

Don’t know how to dress? While some of our members wear suits or dresses, others come in shorts and T-shirts. Dress in what you determine is appropriate for you. What is important is that you feel comfortable and relaxed so you can open yourself up to worshiping God!

We are handicap accessible on the East side of the Sanctuary. This entrance connects to the parking lot of the church where we have several handicap parking spots close by. We have accessible restrooms located near our worship space, fellowship hall, and classrooms.
