Newcomer

   Welcome to Main Street United Methodist Church. Located at the corner of Main and Church Streets in downtown Waynesboro, VA, we are a community of believers whose mission is to Love God, Grow in Faith, and Serve Christ. With vital ministries for adults, youth, and children, we are committed to changing lives and transforming our community. We look forward to meeting you and sharing God’s love with you.
   We invite you to join us for one of our worship services on Sunday morning. Our 8:30am service is informal. A Praise Band leads the music, which includes contemporary Christian songs and familiar hymns in a contemporary style. Our 11:00am service is more traditional. Familiar hymns are accompanied by organ and piano. The Chancel Choir, Youth Choir, Children’s Choir, or Handbell Choirs provide an anthem or special music every Sunday. Both services include a relevant message that will help you learn about God and live your life as a follower of Jesus Christ. On the 1st Sunday of every month, and at special services throughout the year, we celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Everyone—long-time members and first-time guests—is welcome to participate in the Communion service.
   We love youth and children at Main Street! Our youth participate in worship services and every service includes a special time for children, followed by Children’s Church for children age 3 through 3rd grade. A professionally staffed nursery is available for children under 3 years of age. Children’s activity notebooks are also available for the children who stay in the worship service.
   Great things are happening at Main Street. Find out more by looking around our website or contact us at mymsumc@ntelos.net or 540-942-1179.
   We look forward to seeing you soon.

Pastor Linda Kusse-Wolfe

Where do I park? We hope you will find an open space in our parking lot, but if not, please park in the additional parking lot next to our lot. Parking is also available in the Church St. side of the church. Handicap parking is located next to the both lower and main entrances and a elevator is available.
Which door do I use? You can enter the church a variety of ways: The main entrance, off the parking lot will take you to the main hall off of which you will find the office and directions to the sanctuary or through the sanctuary entrances A, B, or C, closest to Main Street especially if walking or stairs is difficult. Many people park in the rear parking lot and enter through the lower entrance off the parking lot or through the Church Street entrance , That area is where most Sunday School classes take place. There are signs that will direct you up the elevator and stairs to the sanctuary.
Do I have to “dress up”? No, some people will be in dresses, or suits and ties. Others will be wearing more “business casual” clothing, and still others will be wearing jeans or even sports gear, if they or their children have sports activities on Sundays after worship. We strive to be hospitable to all.
Then what? When you enter the “narthex” (the area immediately outside of the sanctuary near the main front doors), you will be greeted and an usher will provide you a Bulletin that lists the order of service. You can enter and choose any available seat. Activity Binders and books are available at our Children's Welcome Table in the corner.
What is worship like there?
8:30 Worship: Come as you are to our informal, blended service led by our praise band and enhanced with projected words and images. We invite you to experience relevant and powerful messages from the Word of God in a casual atmosphere. A service that is welcoming for those who are new to attending church and like a relaxed way of getting to know Jesus, His love and His church. Also, a great way to start each Sunday if you are an early riser, have a full Sunday ahead of you and/or simply enjoy worshiping in a relaxed but meaningful atmosphere. Childcare provided.
11:00 AM Worship:We invite you to join us in worshiping God through liturgy and the great hymns of the faith at this traditional service. Celebrate God with anthems from our chancel choir and musical selections provided by our organist/pianist. Children, Youth and Hand Bell Choirs share uplifting songs each month to enhance worship. Hear and relate to the Word of God through powerful and relevant sermons. If you like a more formal/traditional worship experience, this service may fit your search quite well. Childcare provided.

We invite you to stop by this Sunday to see what we are all about!
