Our services typically last about 1-hour.
Our services typically begin with a time of passionate worship led by our Chancel Choir at the 9AM Traditional service and our Worship Team at our 11AM Contemporary service. Most people stand during this time. However, there is complete freedom to be seated if you prefer. The words of all the songs are projected onto a screen. You can either sing along, or just enjoy the music. This time is meant to prepare your heart for the message.
During the service, we will take a general offering. If you are a guest, please do not feel obligated to participate in the offering. This is intended for our regular attendees and members who consider Faith Methodist Church, a Global Methodist Church, their church home.
Holy Communion is offered on the first Sunday of the month at the 9AM Traditional service. It is offered every Sunday at the 11AM Contemporary service. At Faith Methodist Church, we believe in open communion – that means that anyone who believes in Jesus Christ is welcome to take communion, whether they are a church member or not.
Following worship, we’ll be encouraged and challenged with a practical message from the Bible. Our preaching is both expository and applicational. We won’t just study God’s Word during the message—we will learn how to apply it to our daily lives.
- If you are hard of hearing, assisted listening devices are available at the back of the worship center and chapel. Please ask an usher if you need assistance.
- If you are confined to a wheelchair, we have designated seating areas available in the worship center and chapel. Please ask an usher if you need assistance.
