Worship is central to our life together as a community and is an outward expression of our praise and gratitude to God. We hope you will join us weekly for a time of celebration. We have three worship services at First United Methodist Church. You may choose which approach to worship is most meaningful for you in your time with the Lord.
8:30 AM TRADITIONAL WORSHIP
Our 8:30 AM traditional worship service is held in our historic sanctuary. It follows a classic United Methodist liturgy and includes the traditional rituals of worship including readings from the Old and New Testaments, the ancient creeds, the Gloria Patri and the Doxology. We have congregational singing and choral music which surround and support a Bible-based message. Our Chancel Choir sings anthems and leads in the singing of hymns. The congregation typically attends in traditional "Sunday Clothes."
11:00 AM TRADITIONAL WORSHIP
Our 11:00 AM traditional worship service is held in our historic sanctuary. It follows the traditional order of service but also includes hymns and anthems beyond the church hymnal which support a Bible-based message. Our Chancel Choir sings a diverse mix of traditional and contemporary anthems. The congregation is generally attired in a mix of traditional "Sunday Clothes" and "business-casual" wear.
11:00 AM CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP SERVICE
Our contemporary worship is held in the casual, relaxed atmosphere of our McKinney Christian Ministry Center (MCMC). This service blends liturgy with contemporary music and multi-media to support our Bible-based message. Prayer, scripture, and sermon message are accompanied by a mix of praise songs and traditional hymns. Worship is led by our worship team and praise band, The Stirring. The attire in this worship is relaxed; jeans or "business-casual" are the norm.
January Sermon Series
The companion book for this series is Richard Rohr’s Breathing Under Water. Rohr notes that we are all addicted to something. Our addictions, in whatever form or shape they take, serve to fill a need within us…and they don’t fill that need as well as we think. Join us as we explore how this need can only be filled in and through our relationship with God.
