Three Services, Two Times, One Body
This new service is a combination of traditional elements with modern technology and worship practices to create a truly blended service. Come and check it out for a different and exciting worship time.
As a staple of FUMC for over 100 years, this worship service carries many great traditions passed down over the years. A choir, organ and piano create a unique atmosphere of the old and new while giving our very best to Christ. This service is Televised every week.
The Gathering is a 'come as you are' service with a praise band, jeans and flip-flops. This service strives to connect with everyone from the community through the love of Jesus by providing a 'southern hospitality' feel.

Towards the beginning of service our Children's Director will walk through with a flag that says follow me to Children's church. They walk through the Gathering first and then head to the Sanctuary. They take a break in the Sanctuary to hear Children's Moments and then they head to Living Water Way (located downstairs on the east end of campus). They will have Children's Church there and should be picked up there after service.
