Worship at SIUMC

Here at SIUMC, we embrace a vibrant, yet traditional order of worship. Along with relevant and meaningful preaching, familiar hymns, great choral singing and professional instrumentalists contribute to the spirit of worship. We follow the ancient liturgical calendar, which reflects the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; and the sending of the Holy Spirit to the Church. We celebrate the sacrament of communion on the first Sunday of each month. In the United Methodist church we believe the Lord’s Supper is a memorial of the suffering and death of Christ and a symbol of the union Christians have with Christ and one another. Communion is open to all persons, regardless of church affiliation.
