At Thalia UMC, we welcome everyone to worship with us at 8:30 and 11:00 every Sunday morning to celebrate God’s Grace through Jesus Christ. Both worship times incorporate vibrant traditional hymns, the reading of Scripture, a relevant message connecting God’s Word to the world today, and Spirit-filled prayer leading to lives transformed by God’s love.
No matter who you are or where you come from, we invite you to join us in worship. We celebrate Holy Communion the first Sunday of every month and at special worship services.
