We offer four worship services every Sunday:
A typical worship service at Aldersgate United Methodist church may include a greeting and opening call to worship, time for people to greet each other, scripture readings, silent prayer and meditation, an offering, responsive readings, the Lord’s Prayer, a children’s message, the sermon, special music and hymns, and a closing benediction. Words to the hymns and congregational responses are displayed on a projection screen above the altar, or you may refer to hymns by number in the United Methodist Hymnal.
