What to Expect

How do I find my way around IUMC?
We have been praying for you and will be looking for you! Upon arriving to IUMC please consider parking in the roundabout closet to the road where our guest and handicap parking is located. From there you will follow the pathway towards the buildings. On your left is our beautiful sanctuary where our greeters are ready to meet you and your family. On your right you will find our main building which houses our Sunday School classes, choir room, fellowship hall, nursery, and restrooms (men’s is the first door on the left upstairs and the women’s is located downstairs to the facing the staircase. We look forward to meeting you soon.

What do I wear?
Dress comfortably. Our worship service follows a traditional order of worship but is very casual in feel. Feel free to wear your Sunday best, business casual, or your casual attire. Don’t worry about what you wear, just come  worship God with us.

What do I bring?
You can bring your bible if you have one (either traditional or digital). Our worship service is bible-based, bibles are provided, for your convenience, in the Sanctuary pews.

What about my children?
At IUMC, we are continuing to make our children and youth a top priority. Our Nursery and Children’s Church are staffed with excellent servants so parents can experience a meaningful time of worship. Our rising 3rd graders and above are offered a discipleship sheet created just for them as a way to help them grow in their faith during each worship service. We love starting worship with everyone from all age groups together in the Sanctuary. During the worship service, there will be a Children’s Sermon. After the Children’s Sermon (at the discretion of the parents) children are dismissed to either the Nursery (infant to 3yr olds -1st door to the right at the top of the stairs) or to Children’s Church (4yr olds to rising 2nd graders) in the Choir Room (first door downstairs to the right). Our rising 3rd graders and above encouraged to remain in worship and complete their discipleship sheets so they can share them with their family after worship.

Do you have Sunday School?
Yes, Sunday School for all ages is from 9:45 – 10:40am every Sunday morning.  Sunday School classes are a great way to connect with other people. You can build friendships, learn more about the life of our church, and have the opportunity to grow in your faith. Everyone gathers downstairs in the fellowship hall for announcements and prayer prior to going to their classes.

How can I meet others and connect?
There are many ways to get involved.  Start by talking with anyone you see!  You’ll find a warm welcome from anyone in our church family, and our pastor would love to meet you following the service. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact the church office by phone (439-4744) or email (immanuelumcwellford@gmail.com). We’d love to hear from you.
