Sunday Worship Service

Our Sunday morning worship services at 11:00 A.M. are lively affairs! Our prayers, words, and liturgies are drawn from rich traditional sources as well as contemporary ones. We sing plenty of conventional hymns, but we also sing Gospel tunes, protest songs, and, on a good day, the young members of our congregation shake things up with music you might never expect to hear in church.

We sing, listen to scripture, are challenged through sermons and sent out in service to the World. A spirit of warm welcome and hospitality suffuses every gathering. A hallmark of worship at PSUMC is an ample time dedicated to the sharing of joys and sorrows, which are then held up in prayer. People share their personal struggles and celebrations as well as their deep longings for society and the world. Sermons seek to offer a message of grace and hope that shares God’s love for all people. We attempt to share the questions of faith, mindful that the answers are not always clear or certain. Central to our worship is the commitment that the proper response to God’s grace celebrated in worship is to move out in service to the community and world. Holy communion is celebrated on the first and third Sundays of the month and is open to all who would like to receive the gifts of bread and cup.

Nursery care is available during worship for all children newborn to 3 years of age. Childcare is provided by two paid caregivers with occasional parent volunteers. The Nursery opens fifteen minutes prior to the beginning of worship for drop-off. Parents are also welcome to bring their children to the nursery at any time during the service. Parents are asked to pick up children immediately after the service.
