What can I expect?

How long is a Burks UMC service?

In total, a Burks service is about 45 minutes in length.

Services begin with Burks Choir or Band leading music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage in worship how you are comfortable. Large print of hymns and worship songs are available. Interpersed in the music there 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 with us the word of God in an engaging, thoughtful sermon.

What's 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. Visitor spaces are at the main entrance, feel free to use them or park anywhere. 

You will see folks at both Burks worship services dressed in everything from jeans to 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?

At Burks children are always welcome! We have a nursery that hosts infants of 2 months to age 4. Our JAM (Jesus and Me) service is in the 10 am worship hour. JAM is for children age 4 - 5th grade and is orchestrated by Ms. Jessica and a wonderful team of volunteers. To sign into the nursery or JAM make sure to allow a bit of time for check-in. We have a detailed check-in process to ensure the safety of your children.

Children are always welcome in worship at any age!
