Sunday Worship | 9:00am & 10:30am

NEW TO MAIN STREET?

Here are a few things to help you get started!

Worship at Main Street is alive and growing. People experience worship in different ways. So, we offer two services. Each service features readings from the Bible, a Biblically-based sermon, prayer and music. 

THE EXPERIENCE

Join us every Sunday for a moving worship experience at either the 9:00 am Traditional Service or the 10:30 am Gospel Talk.  Feel free to wear your Sunday best or your casual weekend wear – you are welcome just as you are.  Communion is served in both services on the first Sunday of every month to everyone who wants to participate.

Traditional Service | 9:00am

This is our primary service and is attended by the majority of our members. It emphasizes traditional hymns accompanied by the organ and piano, special music led by our choir, bell choir, or local musicians, congregational liturgies and prayers including the Lord’s Prayer, and a practical, scripture-based sermon.

Gospel Talk | 10:30am

Gospel Talk is just that – a straight-forward talk about the Gospel that includes both historical and modern contexts, practical application and an invitation to apply Christ’s words to our everyday lives. This service includes upbeat praise music, prayers, a more in-depth exploration of the Scripture, and a similar practical, scripture-based message from the Traditional Service. Gospel Talk is designed to be informal, and being much smaller than our first service, has a more intimate feel to it.

CHILDREN AND YOUTH

Children are always welcome in worship.  Our Children’s Bulletins and Coloring Pages keep the children engaged with quiet activities during the service. We include children in our worship services in many areas, including offering an age-appropriate message during our “Focus on the Children,” monthly youth-led worship in which children and youth serve as ushers, greeters, readers, and acolytes (candle-lighters). Youth with musical talents frequently share during our special music times, and occasionally join with our adult choir.

For younger children who may not be ready for the full worship experience, we offer a staffed nursery which is available during both worship services and Sunday School.
At Main Street we offer Sunday School for all ages.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I’m new here. Which service should I attend?

Our 9:00am worship service is our main service and is attended by most of our congregation. You will become acquainted with a good representation of our congregation and experience a traditional United Methodist worship service.

Our 10:30am worship service is lightly attended and has a much more relaxed feel to it. The worship is geared more towards people who prefer a simple service of music, prayer, scripture and sermon. Attendance varies and many of our youth and children attend this service. We welcome you to come and grow with us!

Can my children worship with me?

We welcome children in both services. If you have children, you are welcome to have them worship with you or you may choose to participate in our children’s ministry. The pastor offers a special “Focus on the Children,” message which helps the children to understand the Scripture of the Day on their terms. We offer nursery care during both services and a special activity for children called “Kid’s Connect” during the second service.

How should I dress?

We have no dress code or expectations of formal or informal attire. On a typical Sunday, some folks wear suits and dresses, and others wear jeans and T-shirts. Others dress somewhere in between. There are enough people present that no matter what you choose to wear, there will be somebody else who dresses in a similar fashion. What is most important to us is that you wear something that you are comfortable in so that you can focus on the message of God’s love for you.

Accessibility

Our side parking lot has access to the accessible entrance and the elevator. Other doors will also get you into the building, but require navigating stairs. Greeters will help direct you to the Sanctuary and can also assist you with parking or wheel chairs.
