Love God, Love People, Change the World


When are worship celebrations?
First Light, our traditional service begins at 8:30 a.m. Our contemporary service, AWAKEN, begins at 10:45 a.m.

What about the practical questions?
People often feel uncomfortable going to a new church because they don’t know what to wear, where to park, where to sit, you know… the practical things.  At Wayne Street you can wear whatever you are comfortable wearing, sit anywhere (there are no assigned seats) and park in any of our three large parking lots.  If you have any other practical questions you can ask anyone here, we have an every member is an usher policy.

What do I need to bring or know to attend a worship celebration?
The only thing you need to bring is an open heart.  Come ready to meet with God.  While bringing a Bible is encouraged, Bible passages related to the message will be on the projection screens. The only thing you need to know is that God loves you and loves spending time with you. Everything else we will learn together.

What about children?
Wayne Street UMC staffs a nursery for infants and toddlers (through age 3) during both our worship services and the Sunday School hour.  Sunday School classes are available between worship services for age 3 through grade 12.  In addition, Children’s Church is available during the 10:45 AWAKEN service at parents’ discretion. Children age 3 through grade 5 may go directly to children’s church in the Education wing during AWAKEN.

How do I get connected or learn more about the church?
Stop by the Welcome Table after our worship celebration and talk with a member of our Connection Team. They would love to talk with you.

Why do you have different worship styles?
We believe that there is no one “right way” to worship God. Just as people have different tastes in food, different clothing styles and a variety of music preferences, we have different ways of relating to God.

What if I have a prayer concern?
You can call the church office or, during worship celebrations, you can note your request on our Communication Sheet in the bulletin. When you place the sheet in the offering basket, your written requests are forwarded to our Pastoral Staff for prayer and follow-up.
