See “This Week in Worship” for details about this week’s schedule, including Sunday school for children and adults (seasonal)
In 2016, Davis UMC developed a vision for worship, which is one of our three current ministry emphases (along with small groups and service & justice work):
Davis United Methodist Church provides worship experiences in which people of all ages and backgrounds are welcomed and actively involved. The Christian tradition is honored and meaningfully placed in our contemporary context. The worship service engages both our intellect and our heart by drawing on the community’s artistic, musical, and performance skills to joyfully convey Jesus’ message of service, justice and vitality. We depart having had an opportunity to reflect on the message and are eager to go forth manifesting the love of God in our lives and in the world.
Please note that during the current coronavirus timeline, the church holds one worship service on Sundays at 11am. Sunday School and all in-person gatherings are suspended. The paragraphs below are retained here for historical purposes- and eventual reinstatement!!!
Worship at 8:30 and 11:00 am
Our 8:30 service is smaller and a bit quieter. Children are welcome, though there is not a particular time geared toward children.
Our 11:00 service is the larger service, and includes a weekly “children’s moment.” Most weeks children are invited to go to Sunday school after the children’s moment; on communion Sundays (first Sunday of the month) children stay in worship for the entire service.
Don’t worry about what to wear! A few people like to dress up for worship. Some people dress in torn jeans and flip-flops. Most people will be somewhere in-between, and you are welcome to come in whatever you are comfortable in.
We celebrate the sacrament of communion on the first Sunday of each month. All are welcome to receive the sacrament. That means all: you don’t need to be a member of Davis United Methodist Church; you don’t need to be a member of any church; you don’t need to have already been baptized. The United Methodist Church believes that Christ has opened this table fellowship to all people.
Refreshments are available after each service in the Fellowship Hall, giving us time to continue being together in conversation.
