First United Methodist Church of Sturgis will have a special united worship service this Sunday, February 7, at 11:00am in honor of Youth Sunday. The junior and senior high members of the church will be leading worship, including liturgy and preaching. The youth will also serve communion to the congregation.
After the youth service, the church’s annual chili cook-off will take place. Each year individuals or teams prepare their own chili recipe, and those in attendance choose the best-tasting. The simple lunch is available for a donation at the door.
Christian learning is offered for all ages at 9:45 each Sunday morning, and childcare is also available.
Ash Wednesday will be observed on Wednesday, February 10 during a special service in the chapel of the church, at 7 pm. Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent, and is called “Ash” Wednesday because of the practice of rubbing ashes on one’s forehead in the sign of a cross, while Lent is intended to be a time of self-denial and self-discipline seeking deeper a deeper Christian life.
WBET broadcasts each Sunday’s 11:00 service on its 1230 AM radio station. Most Sundays, a contemporary worship service, featuring Reconciled, the church’s praise band, begins at 8:30 am and the 11:00 service is traditional worship, featuring organ music as well as the church’s Chancel Choir. The church’s youth group, for senior and junior high students, occurs each Sunday evening at 5 pm.
The church welcomes all persons and is located at 200 Pleasant Street in downtown Sturgis. Parking is available in the lot northeast of the building and in the lot just south of the church.
