Here are some frequently asked ones!

First
Visit

Where do I park?

You will enter the side parking lot from either US 80/Eisenhower Pkwy or S Lizella Road. Make your way into the church by entering the first door you come to under a white covering. Someone will greet you there.

What time are your worship services?

We have two worship services. A traditional worship format at 9:30 and a modern worship format at 11:15. Each of these worship experiences is unique in their own regard, however the primary difference is in music. In the the traditional service, there is a full choir, a pianist, and an organist. In the modern blend service, there is an acoustic worship team that changes periodically. All are welcome to them both!

What about my children?

Your children are welcome here!

We have a secure nursery located just through the first entrance that is closest to the parking lot. There is a Sunday school class located in that area, as well.

In our 9:30 service, children typically stay in service the whole time. We have a “Children’s Moment” during which they are welcome to come forward and have a short lesson. Afterwards, they return back to you.

In the 11:15 service, your children will stay with you all the way up until the time for the sermon. Then they are given an opportunity to exit to the nursery area where they will be taught an age appropriate lesson on the same topic as the sermon.

If your child makes noise during the worship service, that’s great! We love having children in worship with their parents. It’s an important thing to have the opportunity to worship as a family. A church with no children is on borrowed time.

If you have any more questions about this, feel free to email our children’s minister at children@lizellaumc.org

Will communion be served?

We serve communion once per month. Usually, it’s the first Sunday of the month. Our communion table is “open,” which means all who feel called to come forward and receive communion may do so. No one, including the pastor, gets to turn anyone down who would like to receive communion, regardless of membership or social status.

Where do I go?

This service is held in the Sanctuary, the part of the building directly under the church’s steeple. After parking in the side lot, walk around the front of the church. You’ll see a set of stairs, a ramp, and some double doors. Enter those doors and you will be in the sanctuary.

What do I wear?

How you dress is completely up to you! Most people are more “business casual” during this service, but some do dress more “casual”. We want you to come as you feel comfortable, whether that means jeans, a dress, a tie, or something in between. You have a place here.

What is "traditional" worship?

Our traditional format of worship relies on traditional worship elements, such as a choir, hymns, and reciting creeds together to cultivate an atmosphere that celebrates what it truly means to be together in the Lord. With the assistance of a pianist and an organist, we are excited to worship in the revelation of Jesus Christ in the world as a people with one voice!

Worship

Where do I go?

Once you enter the first entrance from the side parking lot off US 80/Eisenhower Pkwy, to the left you will see the nursery and to the right you’ll see two doors that enter into a large room, our Fellowship Hall. This service is held in the Fellowship Hall, so walk through those doors, turn to the right and get some coffee or treats, and you’re there!

What is "modern blend" worship?

This is a relatively new style of worhsip that blends modern worship elements, such as a worship team, chairs to sit in, and a more relaxed style, with traditional worship elements, such as readings from the Psalms, creeds, and hymns. It may sound unusual because it is! Together, we celebrate that God who has worked through history is still active today.

United
Methodist
Church

What is the UMC?

The United Methodist Church (UMC) is a mainline Protestant denomination, and a major part of Methodism. We trace our roots back to the revival movement of John and Charles Wesley in England as well as the Great Awakening in the United States. As such, the church’s theological orientation is decidedly Wesleyan. It is connectional and embraces both liturgical and evangelical elements. (Source)

Thoughts on the sacraments?

We recognize two sacraments: Holy Baptism and Communion. Other rites are acknowledged and encouraged, but only two are considered sacraments.

For more information, see: UMC.org/what-we-believe/sacraments

Other theology?

We are a church that is proud of our connection to the UMC. Our heritage is rich and our history is full. There are plenty of online resources that will help you understand where we believe on any number of major theological questions.
