Worship

Worship at Bluff Park United Methodist ChurchWorship is central to the life of Bluff Park United Methodist Church. We have many opportunities each week to come together and praise God, strengthen our faith, and connect with one another.

Sunday Morning Worship: 8:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

Every Sunday morning we gather together in the main Sanctuary to worship God with a traditional emphasis. We believe that God will meet us and guide us when we gather in His name. The main Sanctuary at Bluff Park is a beautiful space designed to direct our attention to the beauty of the living God in our midst. The Sanctuary is surrounded by pictorial stained glass windows the bring the stories of the Bible to life and the church choir and pipe organ (which was once housed at McCoy Methodist Church in downtown Birmingham) lead us in songs of praise to our God.

Our worship style is traditional, yet relaxed. There is children’s church for the kids each week, except communion Sunday, and a nursery is also available for families with small children.

Holy Communion is offered on the first Sunday of every month.

The Gathering at Bluff Park: Sunday Mornings Starting Fall 2017

A new worship service is coming this fall, “The Gathering at Bluff Park.” It will be unlike anything you’ve seen before. We’re starting something new to reach new people – people that aren’t yet here at Bluff Park UMC. We’re embracing the gifts that the church has given to us through all of history! We’ll have upbeat, modern music, and we’ll also celebrate communion regularly. We’ll have good coffee with a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere, and we’ll recite creeds and prayers together. We’ll encourage clapping, dancing, and participation, and we’ll also have space to respond to, and contemplate, God’s word in our lives.

A central and guiding image for our service is God’s table — specifically the table of Holy Communion. For generations, God has been gathering people together for worship and praise, growth and service. And, in our own community, we believe God is still going about the work of gathering people together. At The Gathering at Bluff Park, we are creating space around God’s table for people in our community to find a place to belong, a place to grow in faith in Christ, and a place to serve the world in love. We hope you’ll join us!
