Sterling UMC’s worship experience each Sunday is an opportunity for each of us to come to know God better and find hope and help for our daily lives. It is exciting and encouraging to be part of a group of people seeking to live out their faith together. Pastor Steve Vineyard preaches the sermon for the 9:00 AM Traditional service and the 11:00 AM Contemporary worship service, and Pastora Marcela Jarman preaches for the 10:00 AM Servicio en Español, but we also enjoy other speakers from time to time. Nursery (0-24 months) is available at all services.
Traditional Service – 9:00 AM
Our 9:00 AM service has a traditional order of worship, with weekly participation by the church’s choirs and hymn singing from the United Methodist Hymnal and its supplement, “The Faith We Sing.” Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month. This service includes time for fellowship and prayer. This service runs in parallel with our Children’s Worship.
Children’s Worship Service – 9:00 AM
The Children’s Worship Service is held in the Gallihugh Hall fellowship hall and follows the structure of the adult service as much as possible with Music, Passing of the Peace greeting, joys and concerns for prayer time, tithing, a reading, a message, and Communion on the first Sunday of the month. This service is designed for school-age children and older but no one will be turned away. Older children are welcomed as a means to create a mentoring environment.
Servicio de Adoración y Alabanza – 10:00 AM
Growing Deeper at Ten – 10:00 AM
Contemporary Worship – 11:00 AM
