Sunday Worship

 

 
 

Every Sunday, 10:30 a.m. unless otherwise noted.

Sunday school for children.

The service is mostly traditional to accommodate the expectations of a German church which is rooted in the traditions of J.S. Bach and W.A. Mozart. Therefore, music plays a prominent role. 

Scripture readings are conducted in German.

 

Our mission statement notes:

God has called us to serve others in both the German and English languages.

We bring the Good News that through Jesus Christ we have been made free

and thank God for our salvation.

We warmly invite others to join with us in sharing this message,

living it out in our own lives and passing it on to others.

 

Since many people join us because of the German language

we have no special emphasis on denominational issues.

But we clearly hold up our banner as being of Methodist www.umc.org origin.

For Holy Communion, anyone is invited who longs for unity with Christ.

We baptize children AND adults though we do not repeat baptism.

We focus on a personal relationship to the Risen One

and visible discipleship in the family of God.
