Traditional Worship - Sundays at 8:30 am
Our traditional worship service is based on the Word and Table order of worship. Music is led by choir, organ, and piano. On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate Holy Communion using the traditional Great Thanksgiving liturgy.

Contemporary Worship - Sundays at 11:00 am
Our contemporary worship service is led by a praise band and includes songs, children's time, scripture, sermon, and prayer. On the first Sunday of each month, we have communion, but do not use traditional liturgy during this service. Come dressed comfortably and enjoy a time of worship together!

Weddings are a holy form of worship at Mt. Sylvan United Methodist Church, as well as a joyous celebration of love and commitment between two people.
It is a beautiful moment. A couple stands before a congregation of family and friends. They make lifelong promises to one another and maybe exchange rings. In a moment, their lives are changed. The two who have entered separately leave as one, joined together in marriage.
Christian marriage is not a sacrament in The United Methodist Church, but those who choose to marry enter into “a sacred covenant reflecting the Baptismal Covenant” (The United Methodist Book of Worship 115), and more specifically “a sacred covenant reflecting Christ’s covenant with the church” (The United Methodist Hymnal 864).
A service of Christian marriage in The United Methodist Church is a worship service similar to a typical Sunday service. In addition to the elements specific to marriage, there is a time of gathering and greeting, Scripture readings and a sermon, prayers and songs, a time for response to God’s word that may include the sacrament of Holy Communion, and a sending forth.
Before you contact the church to schedule your nuptials please fully review Mt. Sylvan’s wedding policy document by clicking the link above. Direct any inquiries to Sophia Clark, Office Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
