We hold Sunday worship services every Sunday beginning at 10:30 AM via the ZOOM link below or in person.
What should I wear? Honestly, wear what makes you comfortable. On any given Sunday, you'll see people in jeans and a graphic tee to a full suit, and those that join us on Zoom could be in their pajamas with their camera off.
Where do I park? Street parking is generally available in the neighborhood, but come a bit early to find a spot. You can also take the light rail to Mt. Veron and walk over to the Washington monument or take the Purple or Citylink Pink busses to get to our front door or a block away.
Which entrance do I use? Currently we're meeting in the room behind our Sanctuary. The best entrance is the side door on Charles St. Ring the green doorbell if the door is closed when you get there.
Where do my children go? We are working to become an intergenerational worship space so children and youth are invited to join us for the whole service. We have thematic coloring and opportunities for them to share with the congregation during every service.
Will I be called out in any way? We're an intimate community, so when you come in person, we will notice that you're new and probably all say hello. If that's overwhelming, just shoot Pastor Yost a "PLEASE HELP" look and they'll intervine. You really only have to participate in whatever way you feel called. And if you want to check us out from a distance, you might want to join us via Zoom for your first visit.
What are your services like? We do most of the standard things you would expect from a traditional/contemporary service: Prayer, hymns, scripture readings, poetry readings, sermons, and a closing song brought to you by youtube. What makes us a bit different is that we have the opportunity to share how you have seen God or the Spirit on the move in your world this week and later in the service you are invited to share your prayer requests (joys and concerns). We strive to make our time together more participatory but participation is never mandatory.
Join us on the last Thursday of the month for our IN PERSON, community-building, sometime raucous, always thoughtful, get togethers. We meet at a different local establishment each month for casual conversations about serious subjects.
MVP-UMC hosts a weekly online Small Group (when we don't have raising the bar). Check out the description in the Bible Study section of our home page. The next series will begin during Advent in December 2023.
