Worship & Ministry
Worship is at the heart of what we do at First United Methodist Church. We offer one weekly worship services on Sunday mornings at 10am. In addition, we broadcast the sanctuary service on Melrose’s community television station, MMTV.
There are plenty opportunities to get involved in FUMC’s worship ministries. Love music? Consider joining the Sanctuary Choir. If you’re gifted in the realm of technology, you can volunteer to work the sound board, run the PowerPoint sides, or even film for the Television Ministry. You can also to serve as a greeter, usher, or liturgist. Just contact the church office to learn more about how you can get involved!
