Welcome to Youngsville Free Methodist Church!

Here are the answers to some of your questions.

What time is the service? Worship begins at 9:30am and ends around 10:45am.  Every once in a while the pastor goes 5 minutes over. Ok, ok…maybe 10 minutes…depending on who’s preaching.  Two services will be starting October 13, 2019.  The First service
will remain at 9:30 am and the Second service will begin at
11:30 am.
 
Do you have child care?
Yes, during the morning worship service there is a staffed nursery, and the kids have a special worship service all to themselves.   Check out the children’s ministry page, very exciting things are happening there!   (Children’s Page Here)
 
Do you have a Sunday evening service?  
Not usually.  Sometimes in the summer we have at them at our pavilion, and combine them with a campfire, etc.
 
What should I wear?
There’s no dress code, and people pretty much wear street clothes to business casual. Our unspoken rule is that we don’t wear anything that would be very distracting to those around us.     Bottom line: you won’t be judged by what you wear.
 
Do I have to be invited?
No.The church welcomes all people, regardless of background, belief, etc. If you are reading this, then you have a personal invitation from the Pastors to join us for worship. (and we already agreed that you don’t need it anyway.)
 
What other activities do you have?
A variety of Bible studies and small groups throughout the week. Youth group | Thursdays at 6:30 p.m.     (Youth Page)
Free evening meal | Wednesdays from 5 to 7 p.m. or until the food runs out (Beginning in September).  (JoyFull Cafe Page)
 
What time is Adult Sunday School?
Normally we don’t have Adult Sunday school, we have small groups instead.   Small Groups will be starting back up the week of
 October 13, 2019 – Watch for sign ups coming soon!
 
Occasionally, a Sunday School class will be held during the week or Sunday after the Worship Service – Watch the small Group page for more details!  (Small Group Page)
 
 
What can I expect when I visit?
That’s a good question!
Expect that the people you see will be friendly, but they won’t “attack” you. If you chat with them, they will chat with you. There are new people here all the time…so no one will be staring at you.
if you tell someone you’re new be prepared for them to give you a tour. We love to show off the ministry, because God is really blessing it.
 
You should be greeted by a volunteer somewhere around the front door. If you need help getting into the building, or parking your car they will help you. Inside the front door is the lobby, where people gather and have a cup of coffee, or chat with friends before the service. There will be adults and teens hanging around talking (kind of a busy atmosphere). There is a place for Children to sign into the Sunday school located in the lobby, look for the sign on the wall. Announcements will be playing on the TV screen, and the Praise Team will sing a song to let everyone know the service is about to begin. Restrooms are in the back of the lobby.
 
During the service everyone is encouraged to fill out a connection card. The card is in your bulletin, which will be handed to you by a greeter as you walk into the sanctuary. Say “Hi” to the greeters as you walk in. They are always super friendly, positive people. The card has a place for prayer requests, comments, responses and some personal information. If you feel comfortable, leave your name and phone, or email. We appreciate it. It makes us feel better when we can say “thanks for being our guest.” Connection cards should be dropped into the offering plate when it is passed through the aisle.
 
You should find the people sitting around you to be friendly. Chances are some of them are fairly new here as well. Don’t assume that everyone you see has been here for years, there are always new families.
If the people sitting near you aren’t friendly, then let’s hope they are visiting from out of town.
