What is worship like?
Our worship at Boone UMC is designed to be a meeting place with the God who loved us even before the mountains were formed, and who meets us in the tender flesh of Jesus, who is working now by the Holy Spirit to draw us and all creation to himself. The church is a visual echo of the mountains that surround us in the High Country. Looked at biblically, these mountains remind us of God—towering, ancient, reliable, beautiful.
What about the children?
Children are always welcome in worship! Families with young children may choose to have their children in worship with them or to use our nursery care located on the lower level of the Education Building. Children are invited to pick up activity bags to use during worship. On most Sundays, worship includes a “Time with the Children,” during which children come forward and learn more about the scriptures for the day. After this time, children in grades K-3 are invited to “Children’s Church” to explore the scriptures through crafts and activities. We often enjoy children helping to lead worship through singing, dancing, playing bells, helping to usher, reading scripture, and in other ways. Our congregation desires that children feel welcome and a sense of belonging in our worship, that our children at a young age participate fully in worshipping God, and that they have opportunities to use their gifts to help lead worship in dynamic and meaningful ways.
