Sunday Morning Worship
Our Sunday morning Worship service is held at 10:30 AM every Sunday morning. We practice a Convergence style of Worship
which allows for a broad and deep practice of worship— one that reaches into the practices of the historic church but also prizes the distinctiveness so important in all of our various traditions (traditional hymns, contemporary, bluegrass, ensemble, instrumentals, solos, dance, poetry, etc). The goal of Convergence is not to resemble other churches hoping to compete for worshipers, but rather to celebrate God in ways that are meaningful for United Methodists in Jones.
The Pillars of Convergence Worship Include:
1. A commitment to the historic fourfold order of the worship service found in Entrance, Word, Response, and Dismissal (which allows for an ordered encounter with God).
2. A commitment to the celebrative nature of worship based upon the saving acts of God (which allows persons to center upon who God is and what God has done).
3. A commitment to a broad range of musical content and styles (which forms an expression of the whole church both past and present).
4. A commitment to recovering the arts in worship (which encourages the expression of one's whole being).
Classes are held at 9:30 AM before worship service every Sunday.
Classes are divided according to age and stage of life. Nursery, elementary, youth, and adults. All can find something to help feed the spirit inside and grow closer to God and each other.
