What dwells in you
Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?
(1 Corinthians 3:16)
All are welcome to join in the worship of God and the fellowship of this church family. We are fortunate to be able to offer several Sunday experiences – each worshipful and engaging in their own way. Come see where you may find God in this place. Though we worship communally, our services can also help us find the sacred place of peace and gratitude within ourselves. You can find descriptions of each service that we offer below.

Worship Series and Seasons
Blessed. It’s a word we hear and use often, but do we ever consider what it truly means? In his Sermon on the Mount and the Beatitudes found in Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus pronounced God’s blessing upon those who were struggling. Are you going through a difficult time in your life? Do you feel as though you are under great stress or all alone or stuck in your grief or just can’t let go of your anger? Each Sunday this fall, we will listen anew to Jesus’ words and discover the blessedness of God even in the midst of life’s struggles.
Are you experiencing a deficit of joy in your life? Do you find yourself moping around waiting for something good to happen so that you can sing out in thanksgiving! Sociologists have discovered what we in the church have known for centuries — there is a direct correlation between joy and thanksgiving. Although, it doesn’t work the way you might think. Thanksgiving precedes the joy. In other words, if you want to have more joy in your life, then you need to spend more time in thanksgiving. That’s what we’ll be doing the month of November – spending time in gratitude to God and we give thanks for our loved ones, our church, and all the blessings of life. And may your joy be full!

Looking for Jesus
Everyone seems to be looking for Jesus and the gifts of peace, love, joy, and hope he promises in this season. There are just a couple of problems — many are searching for him in the wrong places and others wouldn’t recognize him if they saw him. Are you struggling to see Jesus in your life? Worship with us each Sunday during December as we join those from that first Christmas in looking for Jesus and the peace he brings.

What to Expect
Our traditional and contemporary services (8:45 am & 11:15 am) are 60 minutes and begin with a friendly time of greeting clergy, staff and fellow-worshipers. If you would prefer to be in silent prayer or thought at this time, that will be respected.
Music will signal the beginning of the worship service. Our traditional services feature organ and choir, and our contemporary service features a full band. You can follow the order of worship for each service in a bulletin provided by ushers, or by viewing digital screens in The Road worship space.
Please wear whatever you like to church. We tend to wear “Sunday best” in our sanctuary services but keep it casual for alternative. There is no requirement for either, but we want you to know what to expect so you feel comfortable in your surroundings.
There are common areas outside of each worship space and bathrooms are located down the halls. If you need a private space for nursing or to make a phone call, our volunteers can guide you to a separate area.
Traditional Worship Services
Sundays, 8:45 & 11:15 am, Sanctuary
Our Sunday morning worship in the Sanctuary is rich, warm and meaningful. Built upon traditional Christian liturgy, our more formal services combine the sacred elements of scripture, prayer, and hymns led by clergy and choir. Bill Britt delivers a purposeful sermon each Sunday to be considered throughout the week, and Holy Communion is held once a month to remind us of our unity as Christians. Here we gather each week to give our best to glorify God, and we warmly invite you to join us.
Traditional Worship takes place each Sunday.
Chapel Communion Service

Chapel communion is a service celebrating the gift of the Eucharist. Each week, in this intimate service, worshipers have the chance to hear the different voices of the PRUMC clergy. Music is led by staff and other guest musicians accompanied by the organ.
