Worship at Sterling UMC

“God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24)

At Sterling UMC, we believe that worship is at the heart of who we are as a church.  In worship, we encounter the living God through praise, prayer, Scripture, Sacraments, and song.  We offer three Sunday morning services each week where we provide a more traditional service led by the Aldersgate Choir, a service in spanish presided over by our Associate Pastor Rev. Marcela Jarman, and a  contemporary service featuring our praise band. These worship services offer a variety of styles and  opportunities for the congregation to join together as the church and worship God.  The hope of this church is to provide services that truly bring you and your family into the presence of God.

We worship in English on Sundays at 9 and 11 a.m. and in Spanish at 10 a.m.
