- Join Us
We hope you will join us for worship at Aldersgate!
Please join us online for worship until our Church Council approves in-person worship in the Sanctuary. The Church Council is monitoring the situation and seeking advisement from Governor Cooper and Bishop Leeland.
Worship at Aldersgate UMC will be different when we reopen due to restrictions related to Covid-19. If you are interested in volunteering to assist with worship and hospitality, please complete the form below. Our Church Council has stated that the earliest our church will reopen in Sunday, August 16. We are planning to have two services at 8:30 am and 11:00 am. Please indicate which areas you will be willing to serve.
Our 8:30 am worship service is a more “relaxed” worship environment. Our choir members and clergy do not wear robes for this service, and we sing more recent music in the church hymnody. The music for this service includes a choir and a group of instrumentalists including guitars, mandolins, and piano. We celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month. This service meets in the church sanctuary.
At the 11:00 am worship service, you will find a more traditional worship environment. The clergy and choir wear robes, we have a traditional processional and recessional with acolytes and a crucifer. We sing many beloved hymns from the United Methodist tradition. The music for this service includes a choir, piano, and organ. We celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month. This service meets in the church sanctuary.
On Wednesdays at 5:30 pm we offer a weekly service of Holy Communion. This intimate service includes music accompanied by an acoustic guitar, a short homily from one of the pastors, a time of prayer, and the sacrament of Holy Communion.
