Monthly Communion Service

Please join us in sharing our worship experience every Sunday morning at 11:00 in person in our Sanctuary or across space and time via Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/PineGroveUMCWS ) or YouTube ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC14mOqISUDh2JTthef-U-EA ).  Our service is a blended interactive service with inspiring music and a sermon based upon solid Bible-Based Theology.  Pine Grove regularly celebrates Holy Communion during Sunday worship and also on special occasions such as Maundy Thursday and Christmas Eve.  If you join us online, you will receive instruction on how to fully participate from your location.  If you join us in person, please wear whatever you think is appropriate; you’ll see everything from suits to jeans and knit shirts, and dresses to tops and slacks.  We pray that you’ll feel blessed when you leave.

Worship is the center of the church’s activities and a time to recharge for the mission of the church:  to follow Jesus and make disciples for the transformation of the world.  Through prayer, dynamic sermons, music from hundreds of years ago to the most contemporary Christian music and sacraments of Holy Communion and Baptism, we worship the Triune God.  We honor Jesus, the one who commissioned us to “Go into all the world and make disciples, ” and the making of disciples is a task that Pine Grove takes seriously.  We are a community of believers and lovers of the Word of God with a long tradition of outreach and service to the broader community and the world.  This is exemplified by the phrase you will see over the entrance to the church, “Enter to worship, exit to serve.”

Pine Grove welcomes all persons, wherever you might be in your spiritual journey. Whatever your demographic, you are welcome here.  Whether you are homeless or housed, rich or poor, you are welcome here. Whatever your physical or mental abilities or challenges, the color of your skin or your cultural heritage, you are welcome here.

You are created in the image of God and God resides in you.  Therefore, you are beautifully and wonderfully made.  You are welcome here because Christ welcomes you, and so do we.

Please join us this Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ!

Children in Church

Children are always welcome in worship at Pine Grove United Methodist Church.  We have a nursery for very young children but children above infancy are encouraged to participate in and experience worship.  We regularly set aside a special part of our worship service as a time for children, a “mini-sermon” that’s topical and at a level designed specifically for children.  Many adults say it’s of value to them!
