The overall mission of Fairfield Glade United Methodist Church is defined by Jesus in his final words to the Twelve, “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20).
As we seek to “make disciples,” we also seek to “become disciples” growing in our faith and service with each new day. Therefore, we dedicate ourselves to disciplines and practices of the Christian life.
What To Expect
Worship is a primary entry point into the life of our congregation. We seek to offer a setting where God’s divine presence is experienced through music, Scriptures, preaching, and prayers. Each Sunday we hold two traditional services at 8:15 and 11:00 a.m. Our traditional worship follows a general, historical order with elements and acts of worship that would be familiar to many persons. At the traditional worship, Holy Communion is served on the first
Sunday of each month.
At 9:30 a.m. each Sunday we hold a blended worship, known as Sacred Encounters, which offers a more informal style of worship and music, using many contemporary “praise” hymns. The music for Sacred Encounters is led by Marty Gibson, our Director of Music Ministries, and our praise team known as “REVƎLATION.” At Sacred Encounters, Holy Communion is served each week. From May through September, our Sacred Encounters service meets outside in the Pavilion behind the church. Dress is casual.
Immediately following worship services, everyone is invited to attend an informal gathering in the Fellowship Hall to share in coffee, cookies and fellowship.
