WORSHIP WITH US

COME AS YOU ARE

No matter how you want to worship, Florence First United Methodist Church wants you to worship with us. Like to sleep in on Sunday mornings? Try the 10:45 a.m. service. Want to attend a service and be done in time for brunch? The 8:30 a.m. service might be for you. Prefer vibrant or soulful music that makes you want to move in praise of our Lord Jesus Christ? You might like our 8:30 a.m. service, although our choir can also belt out some amazing tunes at 10:45 a.m.. Feel like wearing jeans and sneakers, or bringing the kids? You're all welcome anytime, anywhere.

 TRADITIONAL WORSHIP IN THE SANCTUARY

Classic, traditional worship at FUMC Florence stems from the time-honored worship practices of our Methodist and Evangelical United Brethren heritage, and includes historic creeds and congregational responses. Pick up a bulletin on your way in to follow along with all of the music and readings, and don't worry if you're not familiar with the prayers and responses; they're in the Hymnal!

 

8:30 a.m. EARLY SERVICE

We complement our congregational hymns at our 8:30 a.m. service with the blues/southern gospel sounds of singer/pianist/organist David Phillips and bassist Ernie Fite. Sometimes accompanied by guest vocalists or instrumental contributors, David and Ernie's music will get your toes tapping, hands clapping and, sometimes, tears flowing. See our Music page to see what we mean!

10:45 a.m. WORSHIP

Classic worship at FUMC Florence stems from the time-honored worship practices of our Methodist heritage. We include the historic creeds and congregational responses that have been a part of Christian liturgy from the beginning of the church. Our classic service features piano, pipe organ, and a variety of familiar and inspiring hymns. The messages always try to explore the depth of the Christian faith and our response to live the Christian life.

Communion

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is open to “all who love him, who earnestly repent of their sin, and seek to live in peace with one another,” regardless of denomination, age, or affiliation. Everyone is welcome at the table.
