What to expect when you visit for worship

  • Worship is held weekly on Sunday mornings at 8:30 & 10:30 (Sept-June). 
  • During the summer, worship is at 9:30 am (Father's Day - Labor Day Weekend).
  •  8:30 Chapel Worship (fall-spring) takes place in the downstairs chapel (handicap access to downstairs is available).  Chapel worship is a smaller crowd made up primarily of adults.  This service is 45 minutes in length and consists of a prayers, Bible reading, sermon & singing traditional hymns (accompanied on the piano).
  • 10:30 Sanctuary Worship (9:30 during summer) is held the upstairs Sanctuary (ground floor).  Sanctuary worship is a multi-generational service that is approximately  1 hour in length.  The service consists of prayers, Bible reading, sermon & singing.  Music consists of praise music (led by praise group with guitar, piano & violin) and traditional hymns (accompanied by the organ).  This service has special music by the adult choir (children & teen choirs sing monthly).  There is a weekly children's lesson where the children are invited to join the pastor at the front of the sanctuary.  Once a month children are invited to a special Jr. Church designed just for them.
  • A nursery for children (up to age 4) is available during the 10:30 worship.
  • Coffee and refreshments are served in the fellowship hall after the 10:30 worship.
  • The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month.  Anyone can receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion (adults & children, members & nonmembers of Leominster UMC)
  • How to dress at worship?  Dress comfortably.  During both worship services you can find people dressed in a suit & tie, dress, casual clothes, jean (shorts in the summer).
  • Visitors are invited (not required) to participate in the offering which is received during weekly worship.  The offering is an opportunity to show your gratitude to God and give back part of the financial resources God has entrusted to you.  Leominster UMC is a 100% member and attendee supported church.  It is through their giving that all ministry at Leominster UMC is made possible.  You can make a financial gift to Leominster UMC by placing a contribution in the offering, giving online at www.leominsterumc.org or texting "Give" to 978-496-3126.
  • There is a Bible Discovery Time for children (nursery-12th grade) & Adult Bible Study at 9:20 between the two worship services.  Children meet in the downstairs classrooms & adults meet in the conference area next to the sanctuary lobby.
