New To Our Church

Worship
Worship is our opportunity to grow closer to God.  We are blessed to have two distinct services with their own style. Our tradition service is held at 8:30 am.  It uses hymns accompanied by organ or piano.  The 11:00 am service is a blend of both hymns and modern worship songs led by Rhythm of Grace, which includes keyboards, guitars and drums.  We are blessed to have a Sanctuary Choir and Bell Choir (Glory Ringers), who minister at various services throughout the month.

​We value prayer as part of the worship experience. We begin our services with congregational prayer.  During most services we share the needs of the congregation and pray for one another. 

We center our preaching in the Bible, God’s word to all people. The sermon is a response to the scripture passage read before the preaching begins. The sermon points are highlighted and emphasized with Power Point. 

We invite you to worship with us.  You are welcome in whatever attire you prefer.

The Sacrament of Communion 

Everyone of Christian faith is welcome to share in this celebration of God’s love. You do not have to be a member of our church or any church because Christ invites all with Him at the table.  Communion is usually served on the first Sunday of the month.
 

Children
 There is a nursery available during our 8:30 am and 11:00 am services.  Childcare is provided for children infant to 4 years of age in the upper education wing.  A comfort room for infants is located in the back of the sanctuary. There are also changing tables located in the women's and men's rooms in the Narthex. 

During the school calendar year, we have Sunday School for children 4 years old through 5th grade from 9:45-10:30 am.   Children’s Church each Sunday morning for children 4 years old through 2nd grade occurs immediately following the Children’s Sermon at the   11:00 am service. Children’s church is led by Mrs. Rachel Whipple our Children’s Ministry Director.  Also, during the school year, a children’s program called “KINGDOM KIDS” is offered on the 2nd Friday of the month.

An annual highlight of our church year is Vacation Bible School offered for a week each July.  If you are interested in any of our Children’s Ministry Programs, contact Rachel Whipple at 724-443-3184 or rwhipple@bakerstownumc.org

 

Youth

Our Youth Group is called Ignite and meets weekly through the school year on Sunday nights from 6:00-8:00 pm.  Open to all kids from 6th-12th grade.   Meetings include Bible study, worship, games, and fellowship.  Youth are given an opportunity to explore their faith while developing lasting friendships.   In addition to the regular meetings, other activates are offered such as parties, outdoor activities, mission trips and retreats.

​We also offer Sunday School classes for Jr. High school (6th-9th grade) are available during the school year from 9:45-10:45 am.  Eighth graders are given an opportunity to attend confirmation classes and become members of our church each Spring.  10th-12th grade students are welcome to participate in an adult Sunday school class or help with children's Sunday School

If you want to be involved in our Youth Ministry Program, or have questions concerning a program, contact Luke Whipple at 724-443-3184 or lwhipple@bakerstownumc.org
