Be Our Guest!

Come and worship with us, Sundays at 10:30 AM. Park in the lot out front, enter through the double doors, and the sanctuary is straight ahead. If you need nursery care for small children talk to one of the ushers by the doors of the sanctuary. Also, if you have hearing or vision trouble and need a large-print hymnal or a copy of the sermon for the day to read along, the ushers have those as well. Worship generally lasts an hour to an hour and a half, and we celebrate communion on first and third Sundays, as well as other special times. We also have Adult Sunday school at 9:30 each Sunday, and children’s church during the sermon for all children.

What to Expect

Our worship is a blend of ancient liturgy and modern messages and we use music from all ages of the church. Our beautiful sanctuary ties together the ancient and the modern as well. We want you to come as you are: some folks wear dresses and suits, some wear jeans and t-shirts. (Shoes are optional!) Wear what makes you comfortable, because we’re just glad to see you. Speaking of being glad to see each other, be warned that when we “pass the peace” it takes us a few minutes. We’re just that glad to be together and worship God.

Get Involved!

If you’d like more information, our weekly office hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8:30 – 12:30. The pastor’s office hours are Wednesday and Thursday 9-12. Stop by and see us! Regular updates are posted on the front page of our website. Also you can follow us on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/cedargroveumccedargrove Or take a look at some of the things we as a church are involved with, below.
