Welcome to First Church The Colony!
We are excited that you are interested in knowing more about Christ and this local body of believers.
It is a privilege to assist you with any information so that we can connect you with Biblical community and encourage your walk with Christ. We know that we are imperfect people but we believe we have a perfect Savior and mission. We seek to be a transforming agent in this world by our witness, our worship, our spiritual formation, and our community outreach.
We are glad you are here. Here are a few links to get you started:
What To Expect When You Visit
What time are worship services?
Our services follow a traditional liturgy or Order of Service. Our 8:30 AM service is a small intimate service for those who like to start the day early. Our 11:00 AM service usually has the largest attendance. Regardless of which service you attend, the sermons are usually the same.
What about Children?
There is a special Young Disciples segment at each service for all children and youth. At the 11:00 service, immediately following the Young Disciples segment (roughly 11:15 AM), children younger than 2nd grade are invited to attend their own “Children’s Church”. All children are invited to attend Explorers Sunday School at 9:45 AM based on their grade in school.
Do you have a nursery?
Yes. All infants up to and including 5 years old are welcome to stay in our nursery during both services. Our professional nursery staff are trained and Red Cross CPR-certified. There are at least 2 adults in the nursery at all times.
Where should I park?
You may park in any available spot; designated guest parking spots are available in the middle row with light poles. It’s perfectly OK to drop your family off near the main entrance before finding a parking spot. There is usually someone welcoming members and guests so if you have any questions, they are a great place to start.
I have hearing and/or visual problems. Is there any special assistance?
Yes! For those who are hearing impaired, we have special hearing devices that you can wear allowing you to control the volume. You can pick one up at our Media Center located at the back of the Sanctuary.
Can I participate in communion?
Our communion services are the first Sunday of every month and during special holiday services. In the United Methodist Church, all persons who profess faith in Jesus Christ are invited to participate in Holy Communion. This includes children, who are welcome at the Lord’s Table, just as they are welcome at the table in your home.
