Sunday Worship Service 8:30 am, 9:30 am and 11:00 am
Our worship is "Traditional" in the sense that the basic structure of the service reflects our Wesleyan, Anglican, and Catholic heritage.  Each week the service is printed in the Bulletin.  All the Scripture reading, hymns, and prayers are printed there for you but are also projected on the video screen for you to follow along and participate.  We encourage you to bring your own Bible to worship with you.  Our services are planned around the Scripture of the day and the Message shared with a focus on applying the Scriptures to our lives.  Music is an important part of our services as we respond to hearing His Word.

The 8:30 service is a Traditional worship service with organ music, traditional and contemporary hymns, Scripture, a Message, prayer and a solo shared by one of our outstanding soloists.

The 9:30 am service is "more casual with a Traditional opening" with several hymns or contemporary choruses led by two singers and accompanied by a piano.  The service concludes at 10:20 am.

The 11:00 service is a Traditional worship service with organ music, traditional and contemporary hymns, Scripture, a Message, prayer and a Chancel Choir.  The service also includes a Children's Time focusing on the Scripture and Message of the day.  Children are then excused to go to Children's Church for a time of teaching, activities and crafts.

Music
Music is foundational to the worship experience at Munholland and enables us to connect to God like nothing else.  Our hymns include both traditional favorites and more recent hymns.  Congregational singing is robust, accompanied by Munholland's newly restored and expanded pipe organ.  We have one of the best Organist in town and the Chancel Choir is outstanding, offering a variety of sacred music.  Our music enriches the service greatly as we seek to worship God and experience His presence among us.

Dress
Our members try to make their time at church and worship comfortable.  This is often reflected in the way they dress.  Men wear either business casual or slacks and a collared shirt while women wear casual dresses, skirts, pants and blouses or shirts.  Youth wear khakis or casual pants and a collared shirt.

Offering or Giving
The only thing we ask you to share with us is the registration of your attendance by placing the "Connection Card" from your bulletin in the Offering Plate as it is passed.  We do not expect our guests to give financially.  This is something we do in recognition and thanks for all that God has shared and blessed us with and to support the ongoing mission of Jesus Christ through Munholland.
