WHAT TO EXPECT

Going to a new church can feel intimidating. We hope to change that!

Christ UMC is a dynamic congregation filled with people from all walks of life. From t-shirts and jeans to business suits, you'll see it all on Sunday mornings. We yearn to be a place and a people where you are welcomed and treated like family from the moment you arrive. 

When should I arrive?

We are currently operating 1 10:00 traditional service due to Covid-19 restrictions. Plan to arrive about 20-30 minutes before the worship service starts to allow plenty of time to make your way to the worship space. Not sure how to get there? No worries! Our parking team members will help you on our way. Ushers will be available to greet you and help you find a seat. Masks and social distancing are required while inside the building for all attendees.

 

Where do I park?

We have a very large parking lot at Christ UMC that begins in front of the sanctuary and wraps around the church building. Our parking team members in yellow vests are available to assist you with parking in the most convenient space available.  

What should I wear?

Come as you are--we mean it! Our congregation includes a wide range of ages and backgrounds. You will see people in the Sanctuary and gym in all styles from jeans to business casual attire. We want you to be as comfortable as possible, so please don’t worry about what to wear.

 

Can I participate in all parts of worship?

Yes! Each week we join our hearts in prayer, lift our voices in song, and share our tithes and offerings in all three services. On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion, and all are welcome to share in this holy meal together. We encourage you to participate to the extent that you feel comfortable.

 

What about children?

We currently are not offering childcare during the pandemic, but our typical situation is a nursery for infants and toddlers or they can sit with you in the service. A cry room is available at the back of the sanctuary. 

There is a children's moment that allow our pastor to give children's a modified version of his sermon topic, and allow space for them to process the message and ask questions of their own.

 

Can I attend Sunday School?

Of course! Our Sunday School meets in 9am and 11am slots at this time. We offer classes for every age group in our congregation, from children and youth to various adult classes that meet every Sunday. Please attend the class that best meets what you’re looking for. For more information, contact the church office on finding a class that's right
