Children

Children are always welcome! Both worship services include a special message for children followed with child care provided for infant to 5 years of age.

Coffee Hour

Coffee, tea, lemonade and light refreshments are typically provide in the Narthex between worship services September through June to provide an opportunity to chat with each other and to meet new friends.

Communion

We typically offer communion the first Sunday of each month at both worship services. In the United Methodist Church, the table is open to anyone who seeks to respond to Christ’s love and to lead a new life of peace and love;  all, including children, are invited to receive.

Accessibility

Handicapped accessible parking and building, audio loop for the hearing impaired, and large print bulletins and hymnals are all available – please see an usher for more information.

Dress

Dress as you are comfortable. We care that you are in church, not what you are wearing.  You will find people in casual dress, in dresses/sport coats and in jeans.  The contemporary service is always more casual.

Offering

Offering plates are passed during the 9:00 AM Worship Services and a basket is available as you exit the 10:45 AM Worship Services.  As a visitor, you are welcome to just let the plate pass you by, or you may give an offering if you wish. If Penfield UMC is your home church, we’d ask you to prayerfully consider giving a monetary offering for God’s work. Offering envelopes are available in each pew or if you would like your own set of offering envelopes, please contact the church office.
