What to Expect on Sunday Morning

We hope you will come and join us on a Sunday morning. As you prepare for your visit, here is some helpful information to help you have the best visit possible.

Upcoming Events

Throughout the year, we offer a variety of special activities for our children and parents to participate in. These events are designed to allow the children to learn about the love and majesty of our Savior in a fun kid friendly way.


Baptism is one of the two sacraments that the United Methodist Church celebrates (the other being communion). In sacraments, God is present with the community in a very physical way, in the form of water at baptism and bread and juice in communion. We, as United Methodists, baptize people of all ages who have never been baptized before and who wish to celebrate God’s claim which we hear at Jesus’ baptism that “this is my child with whom I am well-pleased.”  


In order to help families make the most of their child’s baptism day we ask that parents schedule a baptism orientation before scheduling their child’s baptism. To schedule a baptism or baptism orientation contact

Kate May. Baptisms are scheduled at any of our worship services, but we only do one baptism per service.

Children's Music Ministry

Children's Choir meets on Wednesday evenings and we have offerings for children ages 2 years through 5th grade. If you would like for your child or children to participate please register here so we can help them to have a great experience. Questions? Contact Jonathan Emmons

Vacation Bible School

We have specific programs for preschoolers (4 and 5 years olds), rising kindergarteners-rising 3rd graders as well as rising 4th through rising 6th graders which take into account the learning styles and developmental needs of each group. Kids get dropped off in the Sanctuary at 9am and picked up at noon. This year we will be at Calvary Moravian at 600 Holly Avenue.
