8:30 AM and 11:00 AM • Sanctuary
First United Methodist Church offers two traditional services of worship every Sunday at 8:30AM and 11:00AM in the sanctuary. The services are led by Senior Pastor, Dr. Pat Day and include scripture, prayer, singing of well-loved hymns, a children’s message, and a sermon by Dr. Day. Singing in the 11:00AM service is led by the Chancel Choir, a one hundred member adult singing group who offer a wide variety of sacred music and present many other worship and concert opportunities during the year. Communion is offered twice each Sunday, at 9:30AM in the sanctuary and 12:00 noon in Couch Chapel. A nursery is provided for all services of worship.

 11:00 AM • Emmett Hook Center
FaithLink is the contemporary worship service meeting each Sunday at 11:00AM in the Emmett Hook Center, located on the south side of the FUMC campus. The messages are presented in a practical, authentic manner that seeks to teach Scripture in relatable ways. The music is uplifting, drawing the congregation towards the heart of God. Communion is offered the first Sunday of each month. A nursery is provided for all services of worship. Visit the FaithLink website,, for more information.
Sign up for the FaithLink weekly, emailed each Friday, to stay up to date on what’s going on.

9:45 AM • Couch Chapel
A Traditional Service of Holy Communion in the Wesleyan tradition is offered on the first Sunday of each month, 9:45-10:30 AM, in Couch Chapel. The full liturgy is followed with the congregation coming to the altar area to receive the elements. Drs. Rhoads and Andress are the pastors at this service.

If you prefer for your children to worship with others their age, a separate worship experience is offered for children (3 years – 3rd Grade). Our hope is that parents will give their children the opportunity to worship in the way the family feels the child is ready.
