WORSHIP CELEBRATIONS

MESSAGE SERIES

What comes to mind when you think of the word CHURCH? Is it a building? Is it a location or place? Or is it people, a group that you belong to?

When the church is a place we go, a thing we attend, or a place we serve at… it’s not a WE church.  It’s a ME and THEM church.  

When the church is THEM, it’s easy to separate myself and not get too connected. It’s easy to not attend when I don’t feel like it. It’s really easy to blame them when things are not going well.

When church is boiled down to ME and THEM (other people, leaders, organization structures) we lose sight of our intended purpose. My reach is limited to me.  My love is only as big as I can make it.  I can only accomplish what I can do in this world. It’s a small and meaningless endeavor when I’m a part of a Me Church.

The Church is the Body of Christ. It’s a We Church. Not a Me Church.

Every person is a part of this body, and only TOGETHER can the local church represent the body of Christ and fulfill its mission. Every part of the body matters, and every body builds the Body! As the body of Christ, WE can do greater things together than we can do on our own.

WE can reach farther!

WE can love bigger!

WE can accomplish more in this world!

That’s the beauty of the We Church.  We are simply better together as God intended us to be.

WHAT TO EXPECT
You don’t have to be a Christian to connect with us at MWUMChurch on a Sunday morning. 
Every weekend we speak to both people who have questions about Jesus and to people who are fully committed to Jesus.
 
You can dress however you are comfortable.  You will find people wearing everything from business casual to jeans or shorts and a t-shirt.  
 

We have doughnuts, coffee, juice, and more in our lobby every week.  

We have two worship celebrations on Sunday at 9 AM (Traditional) and 11 AM (Contemporary). 

On months with 5 Sundays our schedule changes just a bit.  We have ONE WORSHIP at 11 and a Mission Breakfast at 9:30 AM.

Here’s what you can expect at our 11 AM (Contemporary) Celebration:

  • The band will play some songs and you’ll be invited to sing along.
  • We’ll welcome you and ask you to fill out a Connection Card.
  • We will collect an offering because those of us who call MWUMChurch home have committed to give.  
  • Nursery is available for our youngest children.
  • Children in pre-school through 1st grade will be invited to attend Children’s Church
  • Our pastor will share an inspiring message from the Bible.
  • After about one hour, the service is over.
