– WHAT TO EXPECT –

 

SANCTUARY

Sunday worship at 8:40 a.m., 10:55 a.m.

Original Campus (228 West Edenton Street)

 These traditional services feature the great hymns of our faith and choral music of the highest order. The services also include acts of praise, confession, thanksgiving, proclamation, and dedication. The sermons are biblically-based and seek to emphasize spiritual growth and service in the name of Christ. These services are traditional but not stuffy, holy but not solemn, and in a large space with the feeling of a family gathering.

 

THE GATHERING

Sunday worship at 9:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m.

Original Campus, Kerr Hall (228 West Edenton Street)

 The Gathering is a beautiful community celebrating worship on the ESUMC Original Campus in a contemporary style. From our transforming encounters with Christ in worship and missional communities, we live as a community who is sent to transform the world by faithfully serving God and radically loving our neighbors in our local Raleigh neighborhoods and beyond.

 

CHURCH ON MORGAN

Sunday worship at 9:00 a.m.,  11:00 a.m.

136 E. Morgan St.

 CoM is our first multi-site community (we call them “tables”) and is located on the corner of Morgan and Blount Streets in the heart of the food corridor of downtown Raleigh.

 

SOUTHEAST RALEIGH CAMPUS

Sunday worship at 11:00 a.m.

301 W. Jones St., Bulla Youth Center

Our Southeast Raleigh Table will be the second multi-site campus of Edenton Street United Methodist Church. Similar to Church on Morgan with its parish-driven focus, the Southeast Raleigh Table is contextualized to embody the spirit and energy of the neighborhoods located within Edenton Street’s east downtown and southeast Raleigh parish. The SERT’s future home has yet to be identified; however, the anticipated public launch date is January 2017. If you’d like more information about the Southeast Raleigh Table, subscribe to its newsletter.

 

KIDS

We have Sunday morning nursery and Sunday School classes for all ages! Sunday school is 9:45 a.m. until 10:45 a.m. Please click on the name of the service you would like to attend for any service-specific information.

During worship, children will be invited to join Wiggler Worship, where they can learn the word of God in an environment for… wiggling!

 

YOUTH 

Our ministry programs and events match our values and are offered year round. Each week we have Sunday School and youth group. Monthly we have missions and small groups. Annually we take various retreats, mission trips, attend camps, and lead confirmation class. Follow us on Twitter and on Instagram.
