MOG Day 13 - Worship
From the umc.org web site:
A typical worship service at a United Methodist church may include a greeting and opening prayer, time for people to greet each other, scripture readings, silent prayer and meditation, an offering, the Lord’s Prayer, a children’s message, the sermon, special music and hymns, and a closing prayer.
Communion may also be served. All are invited to celebrate communion, but you can choose whether or not you wish to participate.
Often churches will print words and responses in the bulletins to help those who are unfamiliar with United Methodist worship.
There will be some differences in the services from church to church. Some churches have a more formal style, while others may have more casual or contemporary services. Some churches will offer more than one type of service.
Visit Find-A-Church to find a United Methodist church in your area. The pastor will be able to tell you more about the worship service(s).
So find a church and go. No excuses.
