Experiencing Christ, Offering Christ to Others

What to expect at our Sunday Worship Services

Everyone is welcome! The First United Methodist Church of Sylva invites you, your family, and friends, to attend any or all of our Sunday worship services. You will be greeted by one of our Good Gracious Greeters as you enter the church. Our Greeters will give you a Sunday Worship Bulletin and are ready to answer any questions you may have. Enjoy a hot cup of coffee, hot tea or hot chocolate in the Asbury Room before or after out two worship services. We provide child care from 9 a.m. until noon. Our nursery accommodates babies from crib age to 3 years. Every 5th Sunday, there is a combined worship service so please check the "Sylva First Happenings" page for details and times.

9:00 a.m. – Contemporary Service

Praise and worship our Lord with contemporary music in our Christian Life Center. Take a different approach in relating to God and the Gospel message with video projections and upbeat music provided by our talented Praise Band.  https://www.facebook.com/912-Praise-Band-1117051568350449/

11:00 a.m. – Traditional Service

We come together in the Sanctuary to praise God for His greatness and to celebrate the good news of His love for us. Our senior pastor preaches and music is provided with organ and piano along with vocal solos, our Wesley Vocal Band, Men's Chorus, and the Chancel Choir.
