What to expect:

How long is a Burks UMC service?

A service at Burks is about an hour long. 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 in an engaging, thoughtful sermon.

What is the culture like at Burks UMC?

When you arrive at Burks UMC, you will 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 service dressed in everything from jeans to a suit and tie or dresses. Come as you are comfortable worshipping. Burks UMC is an 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. During worship, children are welcome to sit with their families or on the designated "Grace Space" at the front of the Sanctuary with Jessica, our Children's Ministry Director. Learn more about Grace Space at Children's Sunday School after worship is for children age 4 through 5th grade, and is orchestrated by Jessica and a wonderful team of volunteers. Make sure to allow a bit of time to sign in on your first visit. We have a check-in process to ensure the safety of your children which will not take as long on subsequent visits.
