Services in-person & online at 8:30 and 11:00am at Florida's Oldest United Methodist Church

There’s a place for you here

Over the last few years, many of us have experienced a time of separation from our communities of support, and many of the habits that we once loved or found nourishing have changed. Whether it was sharing a meal with friends, working, attending church, or simply doing the things that bring us joy; we fell out of rhythm. Rhythms are important. They help to move us forward. So, with our young people going back to school and re-entering the rhythm of the school year, we want to invite you to make church a part of your weekly routine. Join us on Sunday for services. Join us on Wednesday for mid-week dinner and programming. Make church part of the rhythm of your life. You’ll be glad you did.

Visiting a church for the first time or even after a time away can be intimidating. When you’re ready to take that step, we want to make sure that you feel informed before you arrive and welcomed when you are here.

Below you will find everything you need to know, guiding you all the way from the parking lot to the exit. Still have questions? I would love to help answer any questions and meet you on Sunday or Wednesday! Lacey Adair |
