What to Expect

…at a typical Sunday Worship service

Welcome to worship at Richmond UMC! You may have questions about our Sunday worship services. What will happen during the worship service? Where should I sit? What does the pastor do? How should I dress? We hope this page will answer those questions.

On a typical Sunday morning, those in our congregation dress neatly, but not too formally. (You don’t have to wear a hat or a suit, if you are worried about that!). Of course, we encourage you to look your best for God and not for us! Please be comfortable wearing whatever you have.

When you arrive at Richmond UMC, our ushers and greets meet you with a smile and hand you a bulletin, and if needed will help you use our elevator or find a seat in the sanctuary. Our organist welcomes you with gathering music as you take your seat and settle in. Take this opportunity to relax and say “Hello” to neighboring
