I know visiting a church for the first time can be an intimidating prospect. Rest assured that you will indeed find, at Windsor Community United Methodist Church, a people who live by grace. Wherever you come from, and wherever you are in your spiritual journey, you will be welcomed. You will find opportunities to celebrate what God is doing in your life, to make supportive Christian friends, to grow in your faith, and to make a positive impact. Please feel free to explore this website; better yet, come for a visit. I look forward to meeting you. —Sincerely yours, Pastor Laurie Bayen
SUNDAY WORSHIP is at 9:30 and 11:00 am most Sundays. About once a month, and through the month of December, we all worship together at 10:30 am, so please check our calendar to confirm this week’s schedule.
WHERE ARE WE LOCATED? Across the street from Windsor Middle School, at 9451 Brooks Rd South. The worship building is the one closest to the street, and has a banner that reads “Worship Here Sundays” over the front door (the La Petite Academy preschool is located further back, on the southwest end of the property). There are handicapped and visitor parking spaces close to the building entrance.
HOW LONG IS A TYPICAL WORSHIP CELEBRATION? It usually runs about an hour.
WHAT HAPPENS IN WORSHIP? We sing, pray, listen to a scripture reading and a sermon, and receive an offering (first timers are not obligated to give; your presence is your gift to us!). Most Sundays include a “mission moment” presentation highlighting a local or global opportunity to make a positive impact through giving of time, talent, money, and/or prayer. On the first Sunday of the month, all are welcome to participate in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. For more information about worship, please click here. You are also welcome to check out our sermon archive.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? We are quite informal. Come as you are!
WHAT SHOULD I BRING? You don’t need to bring a Bible, but you might find it helpful bring a pen. You will be given a printed program which includes the order of worship, sheet music, and announcements of upcoming events; it’s also handy for taking notes! (It’s okay to bring in your cup of morning coffee, too.)
INFO FOR PARENTS: Unfortunately, we do not have a “cry room” or nursery care. Children are most welcome to attend worship with their parents, though, and folks really don’t mind the “holy interruption” of kids being kids; we think it makes the space more sacred! There is a table in the back of the room where some kids like to sit and color, and the women’s restroom is equipped with a changing table. Youth are regular participants and leaders in worship, serving as musicians, readers, and greeters/ushers.
