Worship and Music

First United Methodist Church, Lansing, MIOur Sunday morning worship service begins at 9:45 a.m. 

What to expect:

First UMC offers a traditional worship service which focuses on connecting with God through music, Scripture, a message, and prayer.
We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are glad that you're joining us and hope that you will be able to focus on the service and God’s Word for you today. Here are some other things you might find helpful to know before you visit:

  • The building is fully accessible.
  • For the most part, our service is a casual, come-as-you-are event. Others prefer to put on their "Sunday best," and that's fine, too! We think you'll fit in no matter how you dress.
  • As a visitor, you will not be singled out or embarrassed in any way. If you feel comfortable doing so, you will have the opportunity to sign and return a guest feedback card.
  • We have a worship bulletin to help you know what is going on in the worship service. Most parts of the service are also projected on our video screen.
  • We take up an offering during our worship services. This is an opportunity for our regular members to respond to God by freely giving to support His church. We do not expect or require visitors to put anything in the offering plate, though you are welcome to do so if you like.
  • We have a staffed nursery available for your children (birth - age 5).

When is Communion and can I participate?

We typically celebrate communion on the first Sunday of the month. United Methodists practice an “open table.” This reflects our understanding that the table of Holy Communion is Christ's table, not the table of The United Methodist Church or of the local congregation. Communion is open to anyone who seeks to respond to Christ's love and seeks to lead a new life of peace and love.
