What to Expect

We know that visiting a church for the first time can be stressful. We also know that you probably have some questions before you visit. Below are answers to a few questions that most people have before they come to worship.

What should I wear?

We believe that you being here is more important than what you wear. We want you to be comfortable. That being said, most of our people wear business casual. However, we have people in their Sunday best and others wearing jeans. We want you to feel comfortable and we will welcome you no matter what you wear.

Where should I take my children?

We have excellent programming for children - infants through high school.

During Sunday Worship and Sunday School:

Infants is our ministry to our precious little ones ages birth through 12 months.  The Infant Room is located in E107.
Children are cared for in a safe environment in our Infant Room. You may check on your little one at anytime through the one way mirror. If you would like a tour of the nursery, our friendly ushers will be happy to show you around and introduce you to our Nursery Attendants.

"Tots Landing" is our ministry for children ages 1 year to PreK 3. Tot’s Landing is located in W109.  During Sunday School, children play games, make crafts, and hear stories all inspired by the Bible in Tot’s Landing. Here children will learn about who Jesus is and how much he loves them. After these children attend Sunday School in Tot’s Landing, they will return to the Toddler Room.  The Toddler Room is located in E105.

"The Doorway," located in E102, is our Children's Ministry here at First UMC Amite for children in PreK 4 through 4th grades. 

Children in PreK – Kindergarten
gather in classroom W106 at 10am for age appropriate games and activities. At 10:20, they gather at The Doorway for story time then return to their classroom.

Children in grades 1st – 4th gather together at The Doorway at 10am for story time then at 10:20am they proceed to their classrooms where they participate in age appropriate activities. 1st & 2nd graders go to W108, 3rd & 4th go to W110.

Club 56, our 5th and 6th grade Ministry, meets at 10am at The Doorway, then proceed to W113 where students learn about the Christian faith through a United Methodist lens in fun and interactive ways.


What type of service do you have?


Our 9am service in the Sanctuary has a more relaxed atmosphere with acoustical instrument

Our 11:00am service in the Sanctuary features our choir, organ, and use of some liturgical elements.

 
Still have questions when you arrive? 

Please go to the entrance of our Sanctuary. There, you will meet a friendly usher who can answer your questions, direct you in the right direction and give you a welcome packet.
