weekly worship

Our traditional worship service is every Sunday in the sanctuary at 11:30 AM.

We are a comfortable and welcoming congregation, and we have music and worship together in a very casual environment.

We share communion together on the first Sunday of every month. We practice an open table in The United Methodist Church. This means that anyone and everyone is welcome to have communion when we join together, because we believe the grace of God is available to everyone!

growing in faith

Spiritual Growth

Through our prayer walk ministry, bible studies with Trinity UMC, and more, we continue to support one another's spiritual growth and encourage new experiences and practices together.


We believe that the grace of God within us pours out of us through our service with one another and for the world. We have a food pantry ministry, a "dry goods" pantry, a free community library, and many other organized opportunities to serve in the greater Lakeland area.

Contact us and sign up for our weekly email to get involved with both!

Giving and support

In our membership vows, we promise to support our church with our prayers, presence, service, witness and gifts. If you would like to support our church financially, we have a few ways that you can do that (besides at our Sunday services).
