COVID-19 Worship Update - Until further notice, worship is being filmed from homes and posted on our YouTube Channel as well as on Channel 3 Brunswick and Channel 14 Bath. You may also join us for worship "live" at 10:15 am at https://bathumc.online.church/ with the ability to chat with other worshipers and lift up private prayer. We look forward to gathering together in person sometime soon!
Worship begins Sundays at 10:15am There will be someone to greet you at the door and answer any questions you might have. If you are comfortable in so doing, you may fill out a name tag; most worshipers will be wearing one. We gather together as a multi-generational church, so worship includes traditional as well as contemporary styles. Feel free to grab a cup of coffee or tea in the worship space, which is in the fellowship hall. Worship includes times for prayer, singing, reading of Scripture and responding to God's Word in meaningful ways and generally lasts just over an hour.
How should I dress? Some enjoy dressing up and others dress casual - we recommend whatever is most comfortable for you. There is a coat room just through the entryway.
Where do I park? The church has a large parking lot that includes several reserved handicapped spots in front. There is also a drop-off circle. If you need assistance, one of the greeters will be happy to help you.
What about my children? Children are always welcome to stay in worship with their family. Nursery care for infants and toddlers is provided during worship, and there is a craft table available for children who stay in worship. Children's Sunday School is offered for pre-school through grade 8 before worship on Sundays at 9am.
Do you celebrate Holy Communion? Yes! All are welcome to receive but there is also no pressure to do so. We usually receive by intinction which means you will be given a piece of bread (or request rice cake from your server) to dip in the cup to eat, which become for us the body and blood of Christ to nourish and sustain us in our faith. Communion or “the Lord’s Supper” can also be a sign of placing one’s trust in Christ or renewing that commitment and knowing God’s forgiveness and healing. We generally celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month in worship, but we also offer weekly Holy Communion at 10am on other Sundays of the month. All are welcome.
Is there anything else I should know? The only thing you need to know is that we love our church family and we love to welcome everyone and anyone to join us!
We hope to see you this Sunday!
