8:15 a.m.–Chapel

Heritage Worship uses United Methodist liturgy and order to create a worship experience rich in history, warmth, awe and intimacy.  This service is free of amplified sound and multi-media and is full of congregational singing, call and response readings, and organ accompaniment.  Heritage Worship focuses on the Bible, honors Christian seasons, and includes weekly Holy Communion.


El Mesias -10:45 a.m.- 200D  (Bilingual)

El Mesias is a body of believers, where in kindness and humility, as followers of Christ, we come together to love one another, to pray for one another, and to provide comfort to those who are hurting. We offer ways for families to experience God’s love and the “togetherness” factor, as each grows in their faith and love towards the Lord and others. The doors at First Church-El Mesias are wide open to Latin-Americans, and to any ethnicity wanting to fellowship with us in “Oneness” as the Body of Christ on earth.
