Got a few Questions before you Visit?
One of the things that unites us at Kyle United Methodist Church is a shared experience of being welcomed into a loving church community. As a result, we work hard to welcome others.
How to dress
You will find our congregation will dress fairly casually, although a few like to show up in “Sunday best.” We aren’t fussy about what people wear. Bring a Bible if you’d like, but we do have some to share and you won’t be lost if you aren’t carrying one.
Where to Enter
Our services are held in the Sanctuary at 9am (has wooden doors) and the Family Life Center at 11am (the larger building on the East side the church with the red doors). There are doors in front and back which are handicap accessible. The handicap accessible entrance to the sanctuary is at the back of that building (enter by the bell tower).
Children in Church
The church is usually filled with the joyful noise of people visiting and singing. The presence of children in the church reminds us that worship is about coming together as a diverse community to share in the grace of God. They will be invited to join the Children’s Director during the service for a short lesson and there is a nursery with rockers and changing tables available in the Family Life Center.
We Don’t Make Visitors Stand Out
We recognize that sometimes people want to check things out before they get involved. We are a friendly place, and we try to greet all who enter, but we do not call out visitors during the service. We do invite people to register their attendance if they want to share their information and let us know if they want to be contacted or added to our mailing list.
Our pastor is usually available after the service and loves to speak with new people—but she will not ask you to join the church immediately or expect you to give or get involved in any of our ministries right away unless you’d like to.
Joining the Church
Those who wish to grow deeper in faith and join the church will be invited to speak to the pastor so that she may answer questions and share information as needed about the United Methodist church in general, and our local church in particular. Our vows include promises to follow Jesus Christ and to serve the church with your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and your witness.
