Frequently Asked Questions

About Worship:

Will I be welcomed?

You are welcome here. We believe that we are all God's children, and we are all in need of a savior. Whatever you have done, wherever you have been, God loves you. 

How long does worship last?

Worship typically lasts about one hour.  The length of worship varies depending upon special activities, such as baptisms and new members joining the church.  The length of the sermon and whether or not we are having communion also affect the length of the worship service.

What should I wear to worship?

Feel free to wear whatever clothes will make you feel most comfortable.  You may "dress up" or wear casual clothes.  We care more that you are here than what you wear.

What are your services like?

We follow a United Methodist traditional order of worship. You will have the opportunity to worship God through music, liturgy and teaching.  Each service ends with an opportunity for people to speak with the pastor about making a spiritual commitment and beginning a closer walk with God.

What about my children? 

Children of all ages are welcome to worship with their families, and there is a Time for Young Disciples as part of each worship service.  We do provide a nursery for children ages birth through 6. Our nursery workers are paid staff persons.

Where should I park?

We have a large parking lot with many spots available as well as plenty of accessible parking spots. 

Tell me about Holy Communion. 

We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month and during other special services. In the United Methodist Church, we offer an open table. We know the altar table does not belong to us; it is Jesus' table. We all come to the table at Christ's invitation. If you have questions about the United Methodist's practice of Holy Communion, please contact Pastor Celia.  

What about the rest of the week? What does this church do?

We are a busy church, and getting busier. We have several bible studies that meet on and off campus during the week. We host cub scouts, boy scouts, and girl scout troops on our campus. We have an active youth group and a vital and engaged women's ministry. 

What mission opportunities to serve in missions do you offer?

Our members are connected and serving in all kinds of mission work in our community. If you have a heart for service, we have a way for you to connect with organizations like Good Neighbor Settlement House, Team Brownsville, La Posada Providencia, the Recovery Center of Cameron County and others. If you know of an organization we should be supporting, please let Pastor Celia know.
