Welcome

We are offering a live service at 9:30 AM and would love to see you. If you are unable to join us in person we hope these recordings of the service (below) will be a blessing.

Worship Service 7/11

NOTE: This week was a very overcast Sunday and as the sanctuary is sunlit, the live stream for some reason looks darker than it even was in person. We have solved this problem at the new location with our new stage lights, and are working on a solution for the old location.

Sunday Morning

Sunday Morning worship at Downs UMC is a great gathering of the church community. The service begins at 9:30 AM and lasts about an hour. Everyone is together for the first half (music and prayers) and 3rd grade and below have children’s church during the sermon (but you are always welcome to keep your kids with you, too). Our music varies from Sunday to Sunday and we try to play a wide variety of songs so there’s a connecting point for everyone. Sermons are most often preached in a series, which allows us to focus on a particular book of the Bible or scriptural theme with a bit more detail from week to week. There are many opportunities to volunteer on Sunday morning: Music, liturgist, greeter, usher, acolyte, and steward. Once you’ve attended a few times, you’re welcome to help out. (The worship service is a work of the people to honor our God.)
