Welcome to White Rock UMc


 

Here at White Rock UMC, we begin each worship service with the words, “You are welcome here. You are loved, accepted, and called.” And we truly mean that. Every Sunday we gather to worship God, to hear the Gospel proclaimed, to sing and pray our faith into being, to share in Holy Communion and celebrate baptisms, and to experience deep community. We do all these things seeking not our own agendas but God’s transformation. That means that we’re not focused on whether you’re dressed casual or dressy, but on how God is at work in your life. It means we’re not focused on whether the music is choir-led or folk band-led (and we do both really well), but on how music and visual arts open our hearts to God’s Spirit. It means we’re not focused on where you come from, what tradition you grew up in, or how many questions you may have about God, but on how we can come alongside you and show God’s grace.

Children of God of all ages are welcome in our worship space, from leading the Statement of Faith and reading scripture, to experiencing creative Children’s Time conversations, to dancing in the aisles and playing egg shakers during the hymns. We have a trained nursery staff available for infants through 3 years old, and our Children’s Church curriculum is a space for young friends age 4 through 2nd grade to experience song, scripture, and reflection in ways that are engaging for them during the big church sermon. Plus, our Pew Baskets are full of crayons, paper, play-doh, and other fun stuff for them (or you!) to use during worship whenever the mood strikes!

Bottom line is, we really can’t think of a better way to say it than what we say each Sunday: You are welcome here. You are loved, accepted, and called. Come join us.
