Worship is an important part of any church, and it is certainly a big part of who we are at Old Orchard Beach UMC. We hold several opportunities for worship throughout the week. No two opportunities are alike:
Sunday Traditional Worship
Every Sunday Morning at 10:00 AM
This service is our version of the Traditional Sunday Service. The service emphasizes our connection with the traditions of the Church while allowing us some flexibility for a more laid back worship atmosphere. If you grew up in the church, this service will more than likely feel familiar to you.
Sunday Morning Meditation
Every Sunday at 8:00 AM
We open the sanctuary every Sunday morning at 8 AM and start the coffee for our 10 AM service. But that means that we have our worship space open for all of those that might be looking for a quiet space to meditate and find a peaceful place to start your week. There is no organized service, but the sanctuary is there for anyone that would like to us it.
‘A Spot on the Beach’
Every Sunday at 8:00 AM (Memorial Day Weekend – Labor Day Weekend)
Have you ever wanted to take off on those beautiful Sundays in the summer but didn’t want to miss Church on Sunday morning? Well, then this is the service for you. We designed this is to fill the need of those that want to get a fairly early start on enjoying their summer Sundays, but still want to take care of their spiritual needs as well. We will meet every Sunday during the summer on Old Orchard Beach at the end of Atlantic Avenue for prayers and praise at 8 AM. Bring your lawn chair and set yourself up for a nice day at the beach afterwards. As this service is held outside, we won’t meet if the weather is not good enough to be outside for a bit. (I like my coffee with cream and sugar…)
Thursday Evening Prayer and Meditation
Every Thursday evening at 5:00 PM
This is not a worship service, but it is an opportunity to get together with others and lift up our hearts in prayer and praise to God through Jesus Christ. This group spends some time in discussion about the prayer needs of the church and the community and then lifts those concerns to the Throne of God using meditative practices.
