Welcome to High Street United Methodist Church! 

At High Street we welcome all people as we live into God’s call upon us to be a church that is “building a community of faith that celebrates, nurtures and serves in the love of Jesus Christ.”  If you are looking for a faith community, we hope you will consider High Street United Methodist Church. We’ve listed the answers to some common questions below. We hope you decide to give us a visit!
 

What is your worship like?

We offer two services each Sunday morning. Both services have a time of congregational prayer, focus on the same scriptures and feature the same sermon each week. Our traditional worship service begins at 9:30 am. It is the more formal of our two services and includes hymns, organ music, responsive readings, and liturgical prayers. From September through May our chancel choir leads the congregation in beautiful inspirational music selections and a variety of special musicians provide music during the summer. Our contemporary service is at 11:00 am and offers an upbeat music style led by a praise band. You’ll be invited to join in singing a variety of songs that range from contemporary Christian, urban gospel, and traditional hymns. At this service children in the congregation are invited to the front for a kid-friendly Children’s Message, after which they are invited to go to Jr. Church. At both services, large print hymnals, bulletins, pew cushions and hearing assistance receivers are available for those who need them.

Where do I park?

Arial ImageFrom East High Street we have a west and east side entrance into our parking lot. Feel free to park in any space as parking is all around the church. There is also a beautifully landscaped lower lot accessible from Spring Street.  Ushers are available for wheelchair and parking assistance.
 

Where do I enter?

For Sunday morning services all doors are open. We have a wheelchair accessible entrance on the east side of the building. If stairs are an obstacle for you please use the wheelchair ramp as all other entry doors have steps. During the week, the only door that is sure to be open is the office door on the west side.
 

What about my kids?

For those with children, we want you to know that children are welcome in all aspects of the life of our church, and especially in our times of worship. If your little ones should need the space to move around and explore, the hallway at the rear of the sanctuary is great for that.  We also have a staffed nursery available from 9:30 until 12:15. During the 9:30 service children and youth are welcome to attend Sunday School. During the 11:00 service children sit with their families until after the Children’s Message, then are invited to attend Jr. Church in the Sunday School area.
 

What do I wear?  

Whatever you feel comfortable wearing. You’ll see folks in jeans and you’ll see folks in suits. The bottom line is that your presence is more important to us than your appearance!
 

Will I be asked for money?

As a first-time guest we do not expect you to participate in morning offering unless you feel so led. In fact, we’d like to make a
donation in your honor to one of our missions.
 

How do I meet people?

There is a fellowship time on Sundays after each service where refreshments are offered in the Commons area. We also have congregational meals and other fellowship opportunities where you can meet people. You can also join a study or a ministry team. There are lots of ways to connect!
 

Is there Sunday School?  

Adult Sunday School classes are at 9:30 am during the regular season. Children’s and youth Sunday School is at 9:30. 
For the Summer the Adult and Youth Sunday School classes will meet at 9:30 AM.  
 

When do you have Communion?

Communion is served the first Sunday of each month and is open to all who wish to receive it.
 

Where are the restrooms?

We have three restrooms on the main floor and two rest rooms on the lower level. The main floor restrooms all accommodate wheelchairs. Two of the restrooms have a diaper changing table.
