What to Expect
Coming to a new church for the first time can be intimidating. The best way to feel most comfortable in a new church is to know what to expect.
In-person worship begins at 9:30 a.m. Bulletins are distributed before worship service, including an order of worship, weekly announcements, a prayer list, and a letter from the pastor. Lyrics for hymns and worship songs are projected on the screens within the Sanctuary, but hymnals are available at each pew. We have a coffee hour following each service, where beverages and snacks are available.
The first Sunday of each month is Communion Sunday. The bread is normal and gluten-free, and the wine is grape juice, so no stumbling blocks or barriers prevent people from participating.
At Cass City United Methodist Church, we like our congregation to feel comfortable and casual. Feel free to wear whatever makes you feel this way.
As a church on a hill, we have plenty of parking.
Our building has two entrances: One on the South and the other east. Both entrances lead to the main gathering space on the first floor, with The Sanctuary and Friendship Hall on the ground floor.
Sunday School is offered at 9:30 am during worship services.
Nursery: Infants and Toddlers will be tended to by our caring Nursery Staff in the Nursery on the first floor, just outside the Sanctuary. Parents can request a pager that the nursery staff can use to get a hold of them if they are needed during worship.
As an open, inclusive, and affirming congregation, we believe in all people’s inherent dignity and worth as children of God, and we seek to exemplify Jesus’ example of love without reservation or exception. We welcome and celebrate diversity and the full inclusion of all people, regardless of age, race, culture, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity expression, family configuration, physical ability, citizenship, language, or socioeconomic status.
We wholeheartedly support the full participation of all people in the faith community, including through marriage, employment, leadership, access to programs, services, and resources, and nomination for ministerial calling. At Cass City United Methodist Church, all are welcome… and all means all.
