Come as you are
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, there’s a place for you here.
Of course you do. Fire away! Here are answers to a few:
What time is your Sunday Service? We currently provide a spirited traditional service at 10:00 am in the Sanctuary, and this service is also live-streamed..
What should I wear? Truly, come as you are. Whatever makes you feel most comfortable. We have folks in jeans and a few in sports jackets and dresses. It doesn’t matter.
What is worship service like? In short, welcoming and uplifting. All services offer a time of worship through prayer, music, a relevant message from the sacred text we know as God’s Word, a time of giving, and a time to experience God’s presence in community. Most services are about an hour long.
Where should I enter the building? Just park in the parking lot off Great Mills Road and enter the set of doors nearest you. You should find someone there to greet you with a warm smile and assist you with next steps.
Can I receive Communion? The United Methodist Church, including Lexington Park UMC, practices open Communion. All are welcome to the feast at the Lord’s table. You do not need to be a member of Lexington Park UMC or any church to receive Communion. All people who seek to live in peace with each other, who turn from self toward God, are welcome to receive this gift of God’s grace.
Can I bring my children/youth? Children and youth are welcome to attend any worship service with their family. However, many children and youth prefer to take part in our Sunday morning programs, which are offered during the school year (Sept – May/June). During the summer, when Sunday morning programs are out of session, we encourage families to attend Sunday worship together.
What is offered for infants and toddlers? Infants and toddlers are welcome anytime at any of our worship services! We have a free nursery care option for parents who prefer that as well. The nursery is located on the lower level and that person with the warm smile at the door can help you find your way.
