| The Door Is Always OpenAs a community of faith we understand that we are called by God to reach out to those in our neighborhoods and the city in which we live ensuring that at a minimum their basic needs are being met.
Welcome to FUMC! We’re glad you’re here!
FUMC Arkadelphia is a welcoming church where we strive in all that we do to create a place where each person is loved as God intends. As you look around our site, know that we would love for you to be our guest and that we will even meet you at the door if you let us know you’re coming. We look forward to worshiping and serving with you in the very near future!
When are your worship services?
Sunday’s @ 9am
The NewSong worship service is held in the Fellowship Hall and features praise and worship songs led by a live worship band, scripture, and a sermon preached from the stage. Audio/visual elements are also incorporated into the service. Coffee and donuts are available prior to the service. Holy Communion is typically served on the first Sunday of each month.
Sundays @ 11am
Held in the main Sanctuary and include traditional hymns and music led by a choir and organ (with occasional use of piano, handbells, and instruments), affirmations, congregational responsive readings, scripture, and a sermon preached from the pulpit. Holy Communion is typically served on the first Sunday of each month.
WHAT TO EXPECT
While we have both traditional and non-traditional worship styles on Sunday morning, you’ll find a comfortable atmosphere at both worship services.
Dress however you’d like for whatever service you’d like – that’s OK. You’ll find some pretty casual attire and others who enjoy dressing up. And don’t worry – you’re not going to get called out in the worship service and asked to tell us your life story – we want you to feel welcome, but we don’t want you to feel like you’re “on display” either.
While you visit, if you want to take a look around either with one of us or by yourself, check out a class, or just head out for lunch, that’s fine. We just want you to get to know us a little bit, and for us to get to know you. We believe we’ll hit it off!
WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN
We love kids here at FUMC Arkadelphia and offer ways that they can have a great experience on Sunday mornings too.
If you have infants we have a fully equipped nursery with a tandem of trained and capable workers at all times. We have a paging system that allows us to notify you in case your little one just wants mommy or daddy. Our media team has installed a TV in our nursery so that is filled with music, Bible verses, Creeds, and all the other elements of worship.
We encourage toddlers to worship with us at both services. In the NewSong service, we offer a children’s moment just for them where they come up from for a few minutes. Allow your child to read, color, and enjoy the Children’s Worship supplies located on the cart in the Narthex.
FIRST TIME GUEST
We are delighted and flattered when we receive guest for the very first time. We know our town is small and it’s easy for us to get complacent and think that everyone’s been here before.
If you are a first timer, then we want to thank you for joining us for worship. You maybe an out of town guest visiting family, on the road, or new to our town but we have a small token of appreciation for visiting with us. Stop by either one of our welcome desk and one of ushers/greeters will give you one of our bags with a few goodies in it.
While you are there make sure to grab a few of our information pieces so you can see all the opportunities we have here at FUMC Arkadelphia to deepen your faith.
WE'RE EXCITED TO HEAR FROM YOU
