Here at First UMC, we believe that worship is at the very core of our faith journey. It is in worship and through worship that we not only talk about Christ, but we worship God through, music, prayer and preaching. We have multiple opportunities each week for worship.
SUNDAY EARLY WORSHIP
8:00 am worship in the Sanctuary with Communion.
SUNDAY CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP
9:00 am worship in the parable garden behind the parking lot (in the Christian Life Center if inclement weather) is The Vine. This contemporary service includes a praise band and modern Christian songs in a more relaxed atmosphere. The second Sunday each month, The Vine service includes Bluegrass music.
SUNDAY TRADITIONAL WORSHIP
11:00 am worship in the Sanctuary is a more formal worship experience that includes traditional liturgy, hymns, and a full choir.
**9:00/11:00 Sunday services are also live-streamed on our Facebook page here
During the year we have special worship services in our Chapel, Parable Garden Chapel, Sanctuary, and Christian Life Center. We will be branching out to have worship in other places and spaces in the Hickory area as we grow in our outreach to the community.
