Worship

Worship is the most well-attended and visible gathering of God's people in churches of any size and denomination. At the Alma United Methodist Church, it is our desire that all people gather will worship God as the scripture says, in spirit and in truth.
 
Sunday Morning Worship - 11:00 a.m.
Our church worship services feature inspiring music by our Chancel Choir, pianist, and other soloists as well as biblical and relevant preaching by our pastor. Our services are rooted in the historic practices of the church such as following the liturgical observances of the Christian year (such as Lent, Easter, Advent, and Christmas). Although our choir and pastor wear robes appropriate to their roles in the church, we encourage people to come to worship dressed comfortably and casually. During the summer, we often set aside the robes for a campmeeting styled service including more of the old gospel hymns and choruses. The church provides loving childcare for infants and toddlers during the morning worship service. Simply ask one of the greeters when you arrive for church and they will direct you to our nursery.
 
Sunday Evening Worship - 6:00 p.m.
Our Sunday evening services are very informal. Usually a smaller, more intimate gathering, our Sunday evening crowd enjoys a time together of singing some of our favorite hymns, sharing our joys and concerns together, prayer, and a devotional message from the pastor.
 
The Sacraments
Sacraments are outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace offered to us through Jesus Christ. The United Methodist Church recognizes only two sacraments-baptism and communion-both rooted in the direct commands of Jesus Christ.  
Elizabeth Chapel United Methodist Church
Located about six miles south of Alma just off of US Highway 1, the Elizabeth Chapel United Methodist Church is our "sister church" on the charge with us. Elizabeth Chapel offers a small, country church setting and is a loving, close-knit group of Christ followers. Elizabeth Chapel worships every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. If you have plans to leave town early or are just looking for a different kind of church than what a downtown United Methodist Church offers, you might want to give our "sister church" a try.
