Here’s What to Expect
When you arrive on a Sunday morning at Mineral Springs UMC, you will find a multi-generational mix of people. Some may have been part of this church for decades, others newly arrived, but all are happy to be here to connect with each other and worship God together. Mineral Springs UMC offers two distinct styles of worship – traditional and modern. Although the worship styles are different, the message delivered by Pastor Eric Lane is the same at all services.
You will see people dressed in many different styles, ranging from business casual to shorts and flip flops. Feel free to wear whatever is most comfortable for you. The main parking lot is located behind the Sanctuary, so you will walk around the building to enter the Sanctuary. The large building (Family Life Center) is where The Bridge modern worship service is held.
TRADITIONAL WORSHIP, 11:00AM
You may prefer the traditional worship services that are currently offered at 11:00am in the Sanctuary. These services include traditional Methodist liturgical components, with congregational hymns and anthems led by a choir accompanied by organ and piano. A children’s message is included during the first part of the worship hour.
THE BRIDGE, 9:45AM
If you resonate more with a more modern worship experience, you will find this at The Bridge, across the parking lot in the Family Life Center. An all-volunteer band and worship leader leads the upbeat (as well as contemplative) praise and worship music. The service lasts an hour, and is followed by coffee and refreshments to give you time to connect with others.
Children are visible and welcome at all services. If you wish to keep your child with you during worship, you can pick up a KidsPack from the greeter as you enter. Children’s Worship is held at 9:45 for preschool through 5th grade. A professionally-staffed nursery is there to care for very young children during the 9:45 and 11:00 services. Middle and High School students are encouraged to attend one of the worship services, and return for their own weekly meeting on Sunday evenings at 5:30.
