Worship at Hawthorne is a wonderful blend of the old and the new. It’s a combination of who we are as a people of God – people who love the best of classical and traditional church and people who love the most brilliant of the recent contemporary worship arts. Our worship services change weekly but always have elements that revolve around the Word of God brought to us by one of our pastors, energetic and creative worship music, multimedia, and the arts – visual, dance, and performing. We love that we are able to bring all of who we are together into one space to celebrate the God of all creation whether you want to worship with old familiar hymns or celebrate with an upbeat celebration song you’ll find a place of comfort and people to join with you lifting glory to God.
Coffee in the lounge before and after. Hang out on Sunday mornings after you’ve dropped the kids in Sunday School or Nursery. You’re invited to stop by the Lounge across from Evans Hall before and after worship (9:00-10:20 or after service) for a cup a coffee, tea or hot cocoa along with pastries and conversation with the others.
Hawthorne Lane United Methodist Church offers a creative, multigenerational, diverse style of worship every Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. This service features the great hymns of our faith, excellent choral music, passionate & biblical preaching, children, youth, and a talented praise team leading more recent forms of worship.
We find that worship is truly the work of the people in that it feels right and good when we all come together bringing our praise to God. We pray that when you visit you’ll find an atmosphere centered around God and focused in a way that will allow you to encounter all that is true and Holy. Come join us! Some things you might want to know when you come…
* Sunday morning worship starts at 10:30 am – with gathering music a few minutes beforehand.
* Childcare is provided by well trained and background checked adults and youth in our education building. See any usher to help show you the way there. Babies and children are welcome in the nursery or in worship. We love the sounds of children as we all come to worship together.
* You are welcome to dress however you feel comfortable to worship. Many of our members dress with a casual business kind of attire – polos and khakis but you’ll also see jeans, flip flops in the summer, and dressier clothes on bigger holidays. We’ll accept you any way you’d like to dress because God loves us all the same!
* Sunday School classes are offered for all ages starting at 9:30am. Children and Youth head to classes for their ages and the adults have classes based on style and format. See anyone when you come in to show you the way or email one of our staff members for details ahead of time.
