We are building a contemporary worship service at Thalia UMC! You can get a sneak peek of what the service will sound like on select dates. Our next Taste and See is Sunday, December 8 at 9:45am in the sanctuary. Then we will have a contemporary service with candlelight and communion on Christmas Eve at 3pm. Starting on January 12, we will offer contemporary worship every Sunday at 9:45am.

The key difference between traditional and contemporary worship is the musical style. We may think of a choir and organ music in a traditional worship service. In a contemporary service, there is usually a praise band that features drums, guitars, and vocalists. The message is always rooted in Scripture, just like traditional worship, but the music sounds more like the modern songs you hear on the radio or streaming on the internet.

If you would like to help behind the scenes, serve as a greeter, or play in the band, please let us know! Be sure to invite your friends, family, and neighbors to share this exciting time with us.
