Worship - What to Expect

Senoia United Methodist Church


Sunday Worship Service:  10:00AM in the Sanctuary and 11:30AM in the Meditation Garden

We invite you to join us for worship! You'll find our worship services to be genuine and meaningful. Our worship experiences are traditional in style. Our 10:00am service provides an opportunity to worship in the traditional setting with the talents of our gifted musicians. These meaningful times together as the community of faith are coordinated around the liturgical calendar and celebrate our rich heritage as Christians and United Methodist. The historic beauty of our Sanctuary and Meditation Garden sets the mood for our Christ-centered celebrations of joy and love. The great truths of God's Word, the Bible, proclaimed through word and song, provide inspiration and strength for our daily living. Come worship with us!

"Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord."
Psalm 150:1-6
