COVID-19 UPDATE: In adherence with the CDC’s guidelines, we are still recommending masks are worn inside the building at this time. You can join us in worship on Sundays at 8:30 AM in-person only or at 10:50 AM in-person or online, via www.facebook.com/FUMComaha. You do not need a Facebook account to view the video. Our classes have returned to in-person, and we have opened our building again for outside use. Our Nursery is open again during Sunday worship as of May 8th, 2022.
Sunday morning services are held at 8:30am and 10:50am in the Sanctuary. We welcome all to create sacred time and space in a community of acceptance and fierce inclusivity. You will notice our staff, pastors, choir, and many congregants are also displaying their pronouns on their nametags to promote solidarity with our transgender siblings. We encourage folks to worship in what makes you comfortable. You will see members of our faith community in jeans, dresses, slacks, suits, and leggings. What you wear is not important at FUMC. We want all to feel free to express themselves and know they are welcome just as they are!
We have a dedicated Christian Education Hour between services for Children, Youth, and Adults.
Music is an important part of our worship experience at FUMC. Our music is carefully chosen to reflect our progressive theology and the worship theme for the day. The Chancel Choir sings at the 10:50 service, bringing music from a variety of genres.
Holy Communion is celebrated on the first and third Sunday of each month. All present are invited to receive the bread and cup. There are no requirements or restrictions. The table is an expression of unity that connects us to the Holy and to all others.
Baptisms can occur at any age in the United Methodist Church in several ways: full immersion or by pouring or placing water upon the head. At FUMC, our baptismal font is located at the entrance to the sanctuary, so we are encouraged to remember the gift of grace upon entering and leaving worship. Baptism is a sacrament that recognizes the presence of God that is already present in the individual.
Children are welcome (and encouraged!) to remain in the sanctuary during worship.
