Worship is not a spectator sport at Bishop Janes United Methodist Church. Inspirational, joyful worship is one of our core values. We come together on Sunday morning to offer our love, our praise, and ourselves to the God who gave his own Son to give us new life. We do this through music, media, spoken word, and congregational prayer and liturgy.
At our Sunday service at 9:30am, all-age family worship service, we celebrate and blend diverse traditions of worship to offer ourselves — heart, mind, and soul — to the God who loves us and calls us his own. Come join our celebration!
