New to Rome 1st?
On behalf of all of us at Rome First United Methodist Church, welcome!
We are a congregation that celebrates the Good News of Jesus Christ and shares God’s love in ministry and fellowship. If there is any way that we can be of help to you, please do not hesitate to contact us or to visit with us.
It is our hope that the information below will help answer some of your questions about who we are and what you can expect when you come to Rome First. We look forward to meeting you soon!
What is Worship like?
Worship is the time when we gather together to sing praises, hear the Scriptures, meditate on God’s will, and share the sacraments.
Here at Rome First we take part in a blended service engaging in both traditional and contemporary elements of worship. Complete with traditional hymns, contemporary praise and worship songs, a weekly children's message, the sermon, and a time of prayer and thanksgiving, believers from all generations and walks of life can celebrate and honor God.
Our weekly service is held Sunday mornings at 11:00am. If you are unable to attend in person, you can join us via the livestream on our YouTube page. Simply click the link at the top of this page!
What is there for the children during the service?
We encourage children to remain in the sanctuary and worship with us as we are all children of God!
There are coloring pages, activity sheets, books, and other fidget items located on the Welcome Table just outside of the sanctuary and on the Children's Corner table in the back of the sanctuary. All are welcome to help themselves to any of these items!
Additionally, there is a nursery located at the top of the stairs just outside of the sanctuary. The nursery includes a livestream of the service for those who need to step out with their little ones.
Sunday School is offered before the service beginning at 10:00. For more complete information about Sunday School, click on the "Ministries" link below.
