When and where is worship?


This summer we are worshiping at 2 locations.  We have a Traditional service @ 8:30 and a Unity service @ 9:45 in our sanctuary & a Modern service at 11:00. We are located at  401 S Spring. At 9:30 we have a casual park service located at the Leif Ericson Day Camp, it is located just east of Cliff Avenue Greenhouse.  Look for the big sign on the road.

What do I wear?

Wear whatever you want and are comfortable in!  You don't have to dress up; come as you are.

Where do I park?

We have a large parking lot located east side of the building across the street from the front door entrance.  We have handicapped parking ajacent to the building on the west side of the building with overflow parking across the street on the west side also.  At Leif Ericson Day Camp you can park in the grass by the pavilion.

What if I have children?

Enjoy Worship and Fellowship secure in the knowledge that your little ones, too, will be learning about the love and grace of Jesus in our Children's Ministry. This summer Nursery will be provided for children 0-3 each Sunday from 8:15 - 12:00 pm. and Children's Church will be from 11:30 - 12:00 at our main campus location.  Our children and youth Sunday school classes will resume September 11th at 9:00 am.  Kids 2 years through 5th grade meet on the second floor.  Students 6th - 12th grade meet in our student center in the basement.  If you are new to First UMC stop by the office and we will get someone to show you around.  Better yet, give us a call (605.336.3652) and we will have someone ready to greet you and show you around!
