How would you describe your worship service?
Our worship service has an emphasis on music, prayer, and preaching. We share some announcements and then transition into times of singing and prayer. Our music consists mainly of traditional hymns found in the United Methodist Hymnal. We also affirm our faith using a creed, typically the Apostle’s Creed. God’s word is proclaimed with a sermon that seeks to help you grow in your spiritual life and to prepare you to serve Christ in the world.
What should I wear?
Whatever you like. Dress in a way that you believe is appropriate and comfortable.
When do you offer Holy Communion?
Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month. Communion may also be offered at other times, such as on Christmas Eve or Maundy Thursday.
Can I take Holy Communion even though I am not a member of Druid Hills?
Yes. The table belongs to Jesus Christ, not us. Therefore, all are welcome to receive Holy Communion.
As a visitor, will I be singled out?
No. We will not single you out in any way because we want you to feel right at home. We do ask that you fill out an information card so that we can get to know you and your family better but this is not mandatory.
What about my kids?
We are evaluating our children’s ministries to suit the needs of the community and the congregation. We would love for your kids and their friends to be part of it!
Do you offer Sunday School?
Yes. Sunday school begins at 9:45 AM.
What are your beliefs?
