The United Methodist Church of Mantua provides two regular worship opportunities every Sunday:
9:15 – 10:15 AM
By far the largest of the two, characterized by a pre-planned order of worship, featuring the church’s choirs and a children’s message. Organ music accompanies traditional hymns from the UM Hymnal and praise songs from the “Faith We Sing” songbook. Robed clergy (between the first Sunday in October and Memorial Day, then it’s jackets and ties for the summer) lead in preaching, prayer, and praise. Child care is provided.
11:00AM- 12:00 Noon
Instituted just a few years ago, this service runs concurrently with the Sunday School hour (11:00 – 12 noon), and was designed primarily as an incentive to parents who may not wish to attend Sunday School themselves, but might like to worship (of course, everyone is welcome). This service is a contemporary version of the 9:15 service: clergy are not robed, nor are there choirs or a children’s message (children are in Sunday School). Our Praise Team leads the congregation in singing contemporary Christian music as well as some old favorites.
