Worship at Fairwood Community United Methodist Church
We begin our summer synergy worship on Memorial Day weekend – May 28th. We have one blended worship service at 9:30am through the summer, through Labor Day weekend. We’ll return to our regular two-service schedule after Labor Day weekend, on September 10th.
When we have two Sunday morning services, our Celebration worship is at 9:00am and features more contemporary music, guitars, and our song team. Our Classic worship is at 10:30am and features more traditional hymns with our organ and anthems from our adult choir, as well as more liturgy and responsive readings.
Some times, our music is mixed up a bit. Every few weeks, our Youth Vocal Band sings at both services, but leaves during the early part of the 10:30 service so that the youth may attend Breakfast Club classes. Our adult Rise and Shine singers will also sing at both services every few weeks.

Other groups that offer anthems at our worship services include our Guitar Ensemble (led by Rae Colborne) and the Signs for Glory signing choir (led by Tom Magee). Special soloists or small groups may also provide anthems as available.

Our sermons are usually based on the Revised Common Lectionary scriptures. The schedule of these may be found at this link: Revised Common Lectionary.
Children 3rd grade and older can also serve as acolytes during worship. Acolytes bring the light of Christ into the worship service and then take it out at the end of the service. They also help with Communion by holding the gluten-free crackers.
