Worship Services

University United Methodist Church offers worship services at 9 and 11 a.m on Sunday mornings during the school year. This Summer we will have one service at 10:30 a.m. from beginning May 29. We will return to two services at 9 and 11 a.m. on August 7. The early service offers weekly Sacraments – either Holy Communion or Baptism. The later service incorporates a broader musical repertoire and observes Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each liturgical season. Furthermore, a gluten-free station is offered for those in need, who wish to partake in Communion.

Past worship services are available for viewing on the church’s Youtube Channel.

Children and Families Ministry

Children are always welcome at University UMC and are invited to take part in all aspects of worship, including communion. 

On the first Sunday of each month, Wide Circle Worship will take place during the 9 a.m. service. Wide Circle Worship is a worship experience with a special focus on children. This service intentionally prioritizes active engagement, including physical movement, audio/visual learning styles, deliberate interaction between leadership and the congregation. Wide Circle Worship invites us all to celebrate our faith tradition by making worship feel relevant, accessible, and inclusive. 

 Childcare is available for infants through kindergarten during both worship services on the ground floor of the Education Wing. Paid childcare workers and parent volunteers care for children in a safe sanctuary environment.
