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.
Current COVID 19 Worship & Gathering Guidelines
Following new guidance from the CDC and the updating of health orders from the Ohio Department of Health, First Pres Maumee has updated our COVID-19 Worship & Gathering Guidelines. Fully vaccinated individuals may participate in worship and other church-related activities without a facial covering and without socially distancing. Unvaccinated individuals should continue to protect themselves and others using mitigation measures, such as masking and social distancing.
* Please note, we will not be asking for vaccination verification.
You can find out more about our guidelines here.
Are there any other ways to join in worship?
Yes! We offer both services in a livestream on our platform, firstpresmaumee.online.church. Worship will continue to be livestreamed for both the Modern Service at 9:00 am and the Traditional Service at 10:45 am. Services are now also streamed on Facebook.
WHERE DO I PARK?
First Pres Maumee has a large parking lot accessible by Gibbs Street right off of Broadway. There are a number of handicap accessible parking spaces close to the church as well as an elevator right inside the doors. There is plenty of street parking in front of the church along Broadway as well.
What is in-person worship like?
Modern Worship: At 9:00 am in the Sanctuary, 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. Doors for this service open at 8:40 am.
Traditional Worship: At 10:45 am 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. Doors for this service open at 10:25 am.
Both services are also livestreamed on our church online platform at https://firstpresmaumee.online.church/. The Modern Service streams live at 9:00 am, and the Traditional Service is streamed live at 10:45 am.
What if I have specific needs?
If you have any requests or questions, we encourage you to seek out a pastor, usher, or volunteer. Assisted listening devices are available during the Traditional Service in the Sanctuary. Large print bulletins are also available. Just ask an usher and they will assist you. Both of our worship service spaces are handicap accessible.
What do I wear?
You will find 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?
Both the Modern Service and the Traditional Service are in the Sanctuary on the second floor. You can choose to sit on the main floor or in the balcony.
Do you have any children or youth programs on Sundays?
Children are always welcome in the Sanctuary! However, families who want to worship together in a more relaxed atmosphere may watch the worship service together in Fellowship Hall. Children's Bulletins and individually wrapped crayon packs will be available.
Children's Church will be offered for children in age 4 through 5th grade at both worship services. A maximum of 8 children will be allowed for each service. RSVPs are requested. Contact Jeanette Axford, Coordinator of Family Ministries, to RSVP.
Our nursery will be available by request only for children birth through 3 years old. A maximum of 3 children will be allowed. RSVPs are required. Contact Jeanette Axford, Coordinator of Family Ministries, to RSVP.
