Sundays at 8:45am
Our contemporary worship service is led by Rev. Brad Gray and the SAPUMC Praise Band. It is informal in nature and often features high-energy musical performances. Contemporary worship is more casual than traditional worship, but the service features the same components—opportunities to greet your neighbors, lift a prayer, and hear the Good News.
Sundays at 11:15am
Our traditional worship service is led by Rev. Brad Gray and the Chancel Choir. It is liturgically organized and closely resembles services that you might find at other Methodist churches around the world. Traditional worship is slightly more formal than contemporary worship and less formal than what you might expect from "high church."
Both services include a "time for young disciples," when all children are invited to participate in a brief children's sermon. Children's Church is available after the children's sermon for ages 4 through grade 2. The nursery is available throughout both worship services for children under the age of 4.
On the first Sunday of every month, we ask that children remain in the sanctuary to participate in "family worship." This is an opportunity for families to partake in Holy Communion together.
Communion is open to all; you do not have to be a member of St. Andrews Parish UMC or consider yourself a Methodist to participate.
