Worship with us
Five worship services
There is a place for you here!
Worship at Decatur First
Come in, pour yourself a cup of coffee, grab a snack or a coloring sheet and crayons and join us for our modern worship service. As we worship together, we’ll sing songs both old and new, prayers will be offered, scripture will be read and God’s love will be shared in relevant and inspiring ways. Come as you are. We mean it.
Decatur First has two traditional worship services each Sunday in the Sanctuary. The Traditional Worship services are more formal in style, with music led by the choir and organist playing familiar hymns, and drawing on inspiration from deep Methodist roots. Communion is offered on the first Sunday of the month.
8:45 and 11:00 am
Worship at North decatur
Worship at North Decatur UMC follows a fairly traditional pattern in both The Table at 9 and Traditions at 11. At The Table, singing is led by a jazz-styled praise band, dress is more casual, and communion is served every week. This time features engaging experiences for children, such as weekly opportunities to play instruments, decorate the altar banner, and setup for communion. Join us - everyone has a place at the table!
At the 11:00 traditional worship service, we sing hymns, we pray for our community and the world, we read scripture together, and on a good day, we hear a pretty good sermon. Singing is led by our organist and chancel choir, style is a little bit more formal, and communion is served monthly. There is a children's moment during this service, with an opportunity for children to attend KidZone for creative biblical play.
