We want our “What to Expect” page to be helpful because it is an opportunity to make you more comfortable during your first visit. We hope we can help answer some questions.
We have three services of worship. Two services are at 8:15 and 10:45 a.m. in the Sanctuary. These services incorporate traditional hymns of our faith, chancel choirs, hand bells, organ, and orchestral music. These services incorporate rich liturgies from the history of the Church, and Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. Pastor Danny Wayman is the principal preacher for our Sanctuary services.
We also have a modern worship service that meets in our Christian Life Center (CLC) at 10:45 a.m. Pastor Adam Shahan is the principal preacher for this service, called The Moment Worship. We like to say that The Moment Worship is where the best of tradition meets the best of today. Relying on a more ancient order of worship, and celebrating intercessory prayer and Holy Communion every Sunday, we express faith through modern music, audio, and visual elements.
- How long are they?
As a general rule, our worship services are one hour in length, though special events like baptisms and professions of faith in Jesus Christ may lengthen the service as we celebrate the growth of God’s kingdom.
- What is typical attire?
At Moore 1st UMC, our members and regular attenders arrive in anything from a shirt and shorts with sandals to dresses, suits, and ties. You will find a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, and we want you to feel comfortable and “come as you are.”
- Is child care available?
Yes, childcare is available for all three of our worship services in our Childcare Area. We have a nursery for newborns and infants and classroom and activity space for toddlers and young children. We will also equip you with a pager that will buzz if your little one is in need, and we are staffed with trained, experienced, and background checked childcare workers who are excited to care for your little ones.
