What To Expect

9:00 Worship in the Sanctuary

This time of worship is liturgical in style but is warm and welcoming, not stuffy or formal. We follow an order of worship and utilize the pipe organ and more traditional hymns. Our Chancel Choir and Bell Choir use their gifts to enhance our worship experience.

10:45 Worship in the Ministry Center (Fellowship Hall)

Our 10:45 Worship features a praise band and is casual, conversational and free-flowing. Worship incorporates praise songs, prayer, scripture and a message. We also take time for prayer and reflection at prayer centers that focus on a theme or season.

Plan Your Visit

Parking

Please use the driveway to the left when facing the church building to access the large parking lot in the back.

Entrance

From the parking lot, walk under the covered walkway to enter the building, the sanctuary is on your right, coat racks are on your left.

The Ministry Center (Fellowship Hall) is down the hallway directly across from the entry doors and to the right just after the double doors.

Children

Worship is for everyone and children are always welcome! Both worship services include a special message for children.

Child care is provided in our newly refreshed nursery for infants to children 5 years of age.

Coffee Hour

We love to offer hospitality! Unfortunately 10 am coffee hour is currently on hold because of COVID. We hope to once again offer coffee, tea, lemonade and light refreshments soon.  Coffee is available during our 10:45 worship service.

Communion

Celebrating communion is an opportunity to receive God’s grace in a real and tangible way.  We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of the month and at other times throughout the year.  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

Our building is fully accessible and handicapped parking spaces are available near the main door. Our sanctuary is equipped with an audio loop for the hearing impaired, and large print hymnals are all available – please see an usher for more information.

Dress

We care about you being in worship, not what you are wear to worship!  You will find people dressed in everything from jeans and sneakers to dresses, sport coats and ties.  Dress comfortably – we do!

Offering

We believe all that we are and all that we have comes from the hand of God. Giving our offering is an act of worship in gratitude for all God has done for us.

Currently we are not passing the offering plates because of COVID. Offering plates may be found at the back of the sanctuary and at the entrance to the Ministry Center.  Your offering may also be made electronically through our Facebook page.

If you are visiting with us, we ask that you be our guest. If Penfield United Methodist is your home, we ask you to prayerfully consider regularly giving a tithe or offering to the church in support of our ministry.

Offering envelopes are available in each pew in the sanctuary. If you would like your own set of offering envelopes, please contact the church office.
