SUNDAY Worship SERVICES

Each of our three Sunday morning services of worship offers unique features:

INFORMAL SERVICE

The 8:00am worship service originated with a group of lay men and women who created a worship setting that provides an informal opportunity for participants to both witness to their faith and share in the context of prayer the joys and concerns of life.  While the pastors create the order of worship and preach, the rest of the service is led by laity from the congregation.  This service provides a uniquely intimate setting for worship and all are welcome to join!  

 

CONTEMPORARY SERVICE

The 9:30am worship service is characterized by contemporary music which is led by a praise team and the contemporary choir. All who attend are encouraged to worship in whatever way they feel led, whether that means standing, clapping, or sitting.  Our responses to God through worship will take a variety of forms!  This service is open to everyone and is usually attend by a wide range of young adults and families.  This service is organized and lead by the pastoral staff as well as the lay leaders of the church.  There is also a time of sharing of joys and concerns and a time of prayer at the altar for the congregation.  We regularly celebrate Communion, Baptism, and the joining of new members.  Also, we often will highlight leadership from our Youth Ministry, Missions, Bible Study Classes, Scouts, Children's Christian Education Programs, and various special musical presentations. (A variety of Sunday School classes are offered during this time as well).   
   

TRADITIONAL SERVICE

The 11:00am worship service is characterized by the rich liturgy and music that is a part of the traditional Christian worship experience.  The pastoral staff at SPUMC organizes the service, composes the liturgy, and preaches; however a large amount of laity participate in the leadership of this service.  During this service we worship through a variety of music which includes the singing of hymns, pieces by the Sanctuary Choir, special soloists, and pieces on the piano and organ.  We regularly celebrate Communion, Baptism, and the joining of new members.  Also, we often will highlight leadership from our Youth Ministry, Missions, Bible Study Classes, Scouts, Children's Christian Education Programs, and various special musical presentations. (A variety of Sunday School classes are offered during this time as well).

Seasonal Celebration of Worship

Celebrations of worship on Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Thanksgiving Day provide additional opportunities to gather together and remember God's grace.   An Easter Sunrise Service in our Memorial Garden and a series of Wednesday evening Lenten and Advent classes with a special focus are also offered each year.

CHAPEL IN THE WOODS & MEMORIAL GARDENS

Throughout the centuries, Christian churches in Europe and America have provided a final resting place for church members on church grounds.  Severna Park United Methodist Church offers this option for the interment of cremated remains.

The garden provides a quite place to meditate and pray. Easter Sunrise service often takes place in the garden chapel.

 

Nursery Care

Nursery Care is provided during all three services as well as for special services during the Advent Christmas and Lenten Easter season. For more information on our Nursery Care click here

 

SUNDAY school

Sunday School is provided for children during the 9:30am & 11:00am services.  Sunday School for adults is provided during all three services.  For more information about our Sunday Schools click here

 

Worship Hospitality

Greeters are available to welcome and assist everyone as we gather and share in the celebration of worship.

Ushers are prepared to assist with special seating needs and to provide electronic hearing devices and large print hymnals and bulletins upon request.  Ushers provide additional assistance during the worship services and oversee the video taping of the weekly service.

Our  Altar Guild and Communion Servers Guild are composed of lay men and women who receive instruction as to these important worship-related services from the Pastors and then they are assigned to their various responsibilities.

Between services enjoy some coffee, tea and donuts as we gather for fellowship in our Fellowship Hall

 

Eucharist Celebration

As United Methodist Christians, we believe in a nurturing Triune God who desires a deep, loving and ongoing relationship with His children.  The Eucharist (also called "The Lord's Supper" and "Holy Communion") is the visible sign of the baptized Christian's covenant with God as initiated and revealed through Christ Jesus.


All (of any age) are invited to the Lord's Table; the sacrament of Holy Communion is offered the first Sunday of every month as well as during other seasonal celebrations.
