What to expect:

How long is a Burks UMC service?

A service at Burks is about 45 minutes in length. Services begin with Burks Choir or Praise Team leading music. Song lyrics are projected onto screens so you can sing along and engage in worship however you are comfortable. Interspersed in the music is time to greet one another, and scriptures are read. After the scripture and music portion of the service, one of our pastors will share the word of God with us in an engaging, thoughtful sermon.

What is the culture like at Burks UMC?

When you arrive at Burks UMC, you will usually find cheerful folks ready to greet you or share an umbrella in the parking lot when needed. Visitor spaces are at the main entrance, feel free to use them or park anywhere. 

You will see folks at Burks worship services dressed in everything from jeans to a suit and tie or dresses. Come as you are comfortable worshipping. Burks UMC is a growing, exciting, mission minded community of faith. It is the hope of everyone at Burks that you find your place in this church family, and come to know the hope of Christ for the first time, or in an even more meaningful way.

What about my Children?

We have a nursery that hosts infants from 2 months to age 4. Our JAM (Jesus and Me) service is during the 10am worship hour. JAM is for children age 4 through 5th grade, and is orchestrated by Ms. Jessica and a wonderful team of volunteers. Make sure to allow a bit of time to sign in to the nursery or JAM on your first visit. We have a detailed check-in process to ensure the safety of your children, which will not take as long on subsequent visits. Children are always welcome in worship at any age!
