United Methodist Church of Livonia, NY

Worship

UMCL is a faith family, formed from diverse backgrounds, bound together with a common desire to follow Jesus Christ.  When you worship with us, you will experience lots of singing, unison prayers, reading the Word, and a message.  We hope you come with your whole family and share in how God is moving in all of our lives.

Worship Service

Sunday at 9 AM
In-person and Online

In-person Worship Sunday at 9 AM

Worship at UMCL includes both traditional church music as well as contemporary worship music.  Scripture, corporate readings, and a message from Pastor Sung Ho focus our attention on worshiping the Lord and preparing us for the week ahead.   We are a singing congregation accompanied by the praise band and/or organ or piano.  Most Sundays special music from the choir, coral group, or soloist provide worship in song. We gather to praise God.   All are welcome and invited to join with us in worshiping God.

The worship service is broadcast live and can be watched here on our website Home page or on the UMCL App.  Services are recorded and also available live and recorded on YouTube UMCL Video and the UMCL Facebook page.

Music at UMCL

Contemporary Music – is led by the praise team. The message is the same as the traditional music, but the “feel” is not. The praise team leads in a blend of contemporary, gospel and some traditional music with guitar, keyboard, drum and other instruments.  See photo

Traditional Music –  includes hymns and choruses accompanied by either the century old pipe organ or piano.  Our pipe organ has been used continuously for over 100 years and was rebuilt by Parsons Pipe Organ Builders, Bristol, NY when it was moved to our new building in 2008.   Other music includes special music solos or duets.  Occasionally the pastor ministers with his guitar and a song.  See photos

Communion

Communion is offered on the first Sunday of each month.  UMCL practices an “open table,” meaning that all are welcome to come to Christ’s table and share in communion.
You do not need to be a member of our church, or any church to take communion.  All that is required is that you wish to grow in your love and knowledge of Christ.  It is the risen and present Christ that calls you to the table, not a church or a pastor.

Communion is served by intinction.  You will come forward, receive the Bread and then dip it in the Cup.  Gluten free option is available and we have sealed cups available for those who may feel more comfortable with that option.
 Your health and safety is very important to us.  UMCL follows any COVID-19 safety mandates of NYS and other CDC practices currently required.
