Learn About Our Church’s Worship Service
At Corydon United Methodist Church, we have a pattern of Worship that is rooted in our heritage and experience. In both our sanctuary and live stream service, your worship will be guided by the pastor. We hope this will help you understand what happens during the service and why.
What to Expect
Music starts playing around five minutes before the ceremony commences. The pastor, liturgist, and acolytes (candle lighters) will then come down the aisle of the Sanctuary.
The lighting of candles shall symbolize the light of Christ entering our Worship. The pastor will then welcome the congregation and begin the service.
From the shortest to the tallest youth of any age are welcome to join the pastor for the story from the Bible.
Taking the Lord’s Supper
Our church holds a service for the Lord's Supper regularly. This communion is open to all, and the congregation comes forward to receive the elements. During COVID-19 we are providing no touch communion.
At the end of the service, the acolytes will take the light from the altar candles. This act symbolizes our commitment to carry the Light of Christ into the world. Through Worship, we have been filled with God's love, and we can now share that love with other people.
