plan your visit
We are delighted that you are considering worshiping with us. We believe that once you arrive on campus or join us online, you will immediately feel like you are hanging out with your soon-to-be best friends. Our goal is that when you join us as a guest, you leave as friends.
If you are looking for a reason to be happier, healthier, and more excited about life, then you certainly don't want to miss a worship service at the United Methodist Church of the Palm Beaches.
Coming into a room full of strangers can feel weird. So, we offer some answers to common questions to help overcome that "weirdness" feeling. Please know, it is our privilege and desire to do everything we can to help you feel right at home. So, come and join us this Sunday either at 9:00 or 11:15.
If you don't mind, we would prefer that you wear clothes. Although there was this one guy named John, he showed up in camel's hair, but that was years ago. But seriously, we don't care what you wear. You wear what is most comfortable for you.
There is plenty of parking. As you turn in off Brandywine Road, you can park anywhere there is an open spot. There will be plenty of smiley faces and signs to welcome you. There are designated spots for first-time guests near the front of the building.
The service is 1 hour. We have so much fun together that the hour just flies by. Plan to sing a few great hymns or praise tunes and then hear a message that will provide real-world life application immediately.
When you enter into the worship space, there is a secret hand-shake. Since you won't know the secret hand-shake, we will see that you are new. JUST KIDDING :-). We will have no way of knowing if you are new unless you want us to know. Our mission is to help you feel welcomed, so if you're going to stay in the background, we respect that. If you want us to celebrate your visiting just let one of the friendly greeters know, and they will help you with the next steps.
We love our kiddos and our youth. We have Sunday School for all ages, including children and youth. We believe it is crucial for families to worship together, so we want children and youth to be with us in worship. We know this can be a bit of a challenge for early to middle elementary-age children, so we have special activities to use during worship time. For children who are not yet in school or are in preschool, we have a fantastic preschool staff who will make their time at church enjoyable.
