Untitled Logo8:45 AM in the Sanctuary. Traditional. Prayerful. Patterned after the church in the Book of Acts. Devoted to the apostles’ teaching, to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer Untitled Logo9:00AM in Wesley Hall. Contemporary Service. So what is contemporary worship? Simply the same as it has been since Jesus walked here on earth. The service may make use of a Praise Band and the singing of non-traditional songs but the final goal is giving honor and praise to His Father in heaven. It is living lives in obedience to His word and His call on our life. Let us not confuse worship with music.
Worship doesn’t change.
Untitled Logo11:00AM in the Sanctuary. The service makes use of the Chancel Choir in praise to God. The songs are standard hymns or anthems that remind us of God’s love and our call to serve Him. Worship is reverent, thoughtful and centered on our need for God in our daily lives.
Children’s Church also is available

Wehave excellent nursery facilities with a regular staff. Your children are also welcome in any of our services. Our pastor will invite them up to the front with all the other children just before the sermon time for a special story or a time to talk together. They are also welcome to come to communion with you. On most Sundays, most small children leave the sanctuary after the children’s sermon and attend children’s church (Ages 3 through 2nd grade). This is optional and not required; all are welcome and invited to attend our services.

Getting Around

Both worship areas are on the upper level. The main entrance is the stairs located next to Parking Lot B. The Sanctuary is at the top of the stairs. Wesley Hall is located to the right of the Sanctuary as you pass through the Gathering Grounds (Stop by for morning coffee!).

Those that find stairs an obstacle, can enter using the lower level side entrance next to Parking Lot B. Handicap Parking in available in this area. Just follow the hallway to its end. An elevator will be located on you left. Restrooms are located next to the elevator on both levels.

Your Faith Journey

Our vision will lead you through the following areas of your Faith Journey.

experiencegod_whiteGod is eager to be known and experienced by all. We believe that God is searching for lost humanity in order to draw us into intimate relationship with Himself. In response to God’s initiative, we value the life-changing power of the experience of His presence. The primary place where that relationship is nurtured and developed is in the act of worship – both private and corporate. We experience God’s presence as a palpable reality when we worship. As we worship we can do as Jesus did: “See what the Father is doing,” and support His work with our lives.

growtogether_whiteOne of the easiest ways to grow is to connect with people who have a desire to learn and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Growth Groups and Small Groups are a great way to do that! You’ll build great relationships, discover your full potential, and reach out to those around you. We are dedicated to growing and maturing as followers of Jesus. When Jesus began his ministry on earth, the first thing he did was gather a small group around him. In small groups we mature together and seek to apply Biblical principles practically to life.

serveothers_whiteServing our Community is a vital part of what we are all about here at CSUMC. Our community starts within the walls of the church and then travels onto the streets of the surrounding neighborhood, continuing into the city and the state and beyond. It’s little things like bringing a meal to a new mom, or raking the leaves of an elderly neighbor. It’s also big things like packing 40000+ Stop Hunger Now meals or a medical mission trip to Honduras. It could be the youths going to the Appalachians to make repairs on a house or providing over 3500 backpack meals a year to local school kids. However we choose to serve, it’s an expectation that has been handed to us and we faithfully and actively pursue new opportunities.
