Worship Services

We invite you to join the Metropolitan community in worship as we seek to bring together the gifts of scripture, tradition, experience, and reason to empower and enrich our lives and our journeys. Our worship services are a key element in the expression of our vision and mission as a community of faith. We are all on individual journeys, seeking to understand the meaning and purpose of our lives. In the faith community, we meet to share those journeys with each other so that we can learn from our differing experiences. We offer 3 weekly worship services in 2 locations with 3 different worship and musical styles. We welcome you to find the wroship experience that is the right fit for you!

WORSHIP


9am WORSHIP

Our 9am service is a relaxed, come-as-you-are worship time. Each week, you may expect music, a time of greeting, scripture readings, prayers, and a sermon. On the first Sunday of every month, we celebrate Holy Communion together. In the United Methodist Church, communion is open to everyone. The 9am service is led by the Dayspring choir, which sings a variety of music from around the world, accompanied by piano, guitar, and occasional guest instrumentalists. Everyone is welcome to join the choir! Following the scripture reading, the children are invited to come up front to hear a story that reinforces the scripture or sermon theme. During the regular sermon time, children (ages 4 through 5th grade) may participate in age-appropriate children’s choirs, go to the nursery (if under 5) or stay in the service with their parents. There is a baby-friendly alcove in the sanctuary with soft infant toys and rocking chairs for families with babies. Following worship all are invited to a coffee hour in the vestry.

 

11am WORSHIP

Our 11am service is a traditional, formal worship time, featuring the ancient liturgy, prayers and creeds of the Church. On the first Sunday of every month, we celebrate Holy Communion together, using the traditional liturgy and sung responses. In the United Methodist Church, communion is open to everyone. Each week, the service opens with the Chancel choir processional. The Chancel choir offers classical and gospel music, generally accompanied by the pipe organ. Everyone is welcome to join the choir! Following the scripture reading, the children are invited to come up front to hear a story that reinforces the scripture or sermon theme. During the regular sermon time, children (ages 4 through 5th grade) may participate in an enrichment time, go to the nursery (if under 5) or stay in the service with their parents.
