What will I experience in a service?
When you join us for worship, we pray that you will have an encounter with God’s presence that will touch, transform, and speak to your life.
Our church has two primary styles of worship on our campus during morning services. We have “traditional” worship in our Sanctuary where we sing beautiful, sacred hymns accompanied by choirs, organ, piano, and other instruments. Our “contemporary” worship experience in our Family Life Center has more modern music accompanied by vocalists, keyboard, guitars, and drums.
In all services, song lyrics, prayers, and other liturgy are viewable on our screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable.
What is the atmosphere like?
Sunday's at Mountain Park UMC are exciting, casual, and welcoming. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest when you step foot on our campus.
We want to develop and nurture a grace-filled worshipping community that provides inspiring, meaningful, transformational, open, responsive, and sacred worship experiences that connects new people to God, to each other, and to our community. In addition, aesthetics, art, music, and creativity are critical components of our services.
What is the Preaching like?
During the services, one of our pastors will share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus that you can apply to your life.
Throughout the year, we have several worship “series” that focus on various aspects of our lives to help you grow in your relationship with God.

What about my kids?
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Mountain Park UMC, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our MPUMC programs the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the Mountain Park Kids experience. Kids Ministry is offered during the 11a.m. worship service experiences for both Preschoolers (3-4 yrs) and K-5th grade.
We offer nursery care for infants through 2 year olds. Students in 6th through 12th graders are encouraged to worship with their families.
Who is on Your leadership and staff?
We have a group of faith-filled, loving leadership and staff who are excited and called to serve you and our community week-in and week-out. We hope to lead others in a saving relationship with Jesus and help them grow their understanding and practice of a thriving life of faith.
How Does this church serve the community?
Mountain Park UMC seeks to fulfill its mission to “connect our community with Jesus to transform lives.” We accomplish this by equipping individuals and our serve teams to love and serve all people in Jesus’ name in our daily living and through regular service events and programs. In addition, we form vital partnerships with organizations that are helping make a difference both locally and globally.
We hope we were able to answer some of your questions!
