Sunday Services



First Methodist Church Rainbow City strives to provide an atmosphere in which people of all faith backgrounds can feel welcome and at ease, and are also able to experience Christ’s love and the majesty of God in new and exciting ways.

We have two unique worship experiences that are deeply rooted in Christian tradition, but which also reflect the variety of music and worship styles available today.

Sanctuary Worship features historic hymns and choruses taken from the First Methodist Hymnal led by the Chancel Choir. Sunday at 11am.

Crossroads Worship features more contemporary songs led by a praise chorus. In person Contemporary Service Sunday at 8:30am.

Both of our worship services features many of the traditional elements that have been a part of Methodist worship for over 300 years and fresh expressions of worship that originate within our modern faith experience. Our services reflect and speak into the diverse cultures and generations that comprise our church and community.

We strive to connect the hymns, songs, choruses, prayers, readings, and other acts of worship with the worship focus for each Sunday so that worshippers are able to experience deep emotional and spiritual connections through all aspects of the service.

For our guests who may be unfamiliar with the traditional prayers, hymns, and other practices of worship, we make sure to provide a printed worship bulletin with everything you need to participate in worship. Prayers and songs are also projected onto screens for easy viewing.
