What to Expect
Welcome to First Pres Maumee! We are thrilled to have you join us. We have two Sunday worship services, each about 1 hour in length. The services are unique but the pastor’s message will be the same at each.
Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month.
What is worship like?
We offer two different styles of worship, and we invite you to try out both. You may find that you like one style over the other, but you may discover that you like to switch back and forth. No matter your preference, you can expect excellence in preaching, music, and congregational engagement.
Modern Worship: At 9:00 in the Fellowship Hall, we offer modern music, Scripture, multimedia, prayer, and preaching as a means to create space for us to encounter God and experience the transforming power of the Gospel. We strive to be inter-generational, innovative, intentional, interactive, and intimate. Children's Church is during this service.
Traditional Worship: At 10:30 in the Sanctuary, we offer traditional hymns and anthems, with a wide range of sacred music, led by our chancel choir, handbell choir, and 2161-pipe organ. Worshipers of all ages are welcome.
What if I have specific needs?
If you have any requests or questions, we encourage you to seek out a pastor, usher, or volunteer to help you with anything. For those who need them, assisted listening devices are available during the Traditional Service in the Sanctuary. Additionally, large print bulletins are available. Just ask an usher and they will assist you. Both of our worship service spaces are handicap accessible.
What do I wear?
We invite you to dress in what you feel most comfortable. We have people who prefer casual, dressy, and business attire, so the chances are that you will find folks that are dressed like you are at either service.
Where do I go once I am there?
The Traditional Service is in the Sanctuary on the second floor. You can choose to sit on the main floor or in the balcony. The Modern Service is in the Fellowship Hall, on the ground floor.
If you have a young child, you are welcome to have them stay with you during the worship service, or you can have them play in our staffed nursery.
