Worship with Us
What to Expect
Our worship gathers all who seek to live in love and justice.
To all members and visitors!
Relax! God put the wiggle in children; wiggle with them! All truly are welcome here.
The presence of children is a gift to Main Street UMC and a reminder that the spirit is active at every age. How we welcome children in church directly affects the way they respond to the Church, to God, and to one another. A smile and words of welcome let children know this place is also for them.
Children (as well as adults) should not be hugged or picked up without first asking permission. It's a good lesson in consent over our bodies and good practice in permission giving.
Always seek permission from accompanying adults before offering candy or food to kids.
There are various learning styles and no one is expected to sit quietly and still if that's not their mode of engagement. You're encouraged to sing out, dance, shout a word of encouragement or an "amen", or laugh when the pastors say something funny (which they think is a lot).
There is often a basket in the lobby (by the stairs) that offers hands-on activity or comfy chairs. There are also crayons and coloring pages.
A changing table and restroom are located in the lobby near the elevators.
Dress up or down.... we don't care!
You're welcome to come as you are. Dress up clothing is not required. You'll see everything from jeans, shorts, sandals and suits and ties in our pews.
