What We Do
At Aldersgate United Methodist Church we…
…worship together weekly at 10:30 AM where we live into Jesus’ promise that “.. . where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.” (Matthew 18:20)
Our worship is traditional in style but with plenty of variety in music and worship elements. Our worship includes a choir, guitar and brass ensembles, and a group that uses hands and motions to help us worship.
… offer opportunities for learning and growth: Sunday morning classes, Bible studies, a women’s reading group, and special groups to go along with worship series or during seasons of the year like Advent and Lent
.. offer opportunities for children and their families including a children’s sermon followed by a children;s worship time during our Sunday morning service, a massive community Easter Egg hunt, Vacation Bible School and other family-friendly events for families of every size and configuration.
… have a Sunday evening youth group meeting for high-school aged youth
… host a thriving community garden that offers surplus produce to area families as well as allowing neighborhood folks to grow their own vegetables
… impact our community through ministries like Food for Huber (offering groceries and hope every third Saturday) , Love in a Bag that feeds over 60 elementary school students every weekend – done in partnership with Sulphur Grove United Methodist Church and other community churches), and Live Free (partnering with other churches to provide a weekly program providing literacy training, Bible stories and activities, recreation, and lunch).
… support financially and participate in other ministries that make a difference in our community, nation, and world through generous financial giving. These include Imagine No Malaria, United Methodist Committee on Relief, CROP Walk to end hunger, Oasis House, and others.
… offer badly needed safe meeting space for Scout groups, AA, and other groups that cannot afford their own facilities but make a difference in our neighborhood and world.
And lots, lots more. Come and find out what we do and more importantly what God is doing at Aldersgate every day!
