@ 8:30 and 10:00 am
with totally different styles to meet different needs!
THE BRIDGE @ Beverly Methodist runs weekly from 8:30 -9:15 and has the name because it helps us bridge the gap of learning that occurs when we can't go deep enough in worship, but don't have enough time in our busy lives to attend bible study. With the intenitonality of worship, but the informality of study, The Bridge allows every one the opportunity to dig into God's Word together. This service also bridges the gap when our day is full, and need a second alternative-now you can have "your cake and eat it too!" Attend worship early, and head out to that barbeque, work, etc- no need to skip church.--Let THE BRIDGE help fill your gap!
Our Worship Service
Beverly United Methodist worships in a blended style at 10:00 am each week. We use the traditional with a modern twist, with the whole worship service displayed on the large screen, but also have hymnals available. During our service you will hear traditional hymns played on our organ along with more contemporary music sung to the piano. We begin worship with an opening hymn and prayer. Adults and children learn together starting with a children’s message during Pastor’s Pals. During this time you can enjoy some unexpected fun as the lesson is often interactive using both children and adults. Visual aids enhance the message and help both young and old understand the scripture of the day. For 2018 we will be using THE STORY (click on link below), that will take us from Genesis to Revelation, as a way for us all to grow in our Biblical understanding.
After Pastor’s Pals the young children leave to continue their learning during Sunday School while those from 7th grade up stay in worship. The message again reflects both a traditional and contemporary style with many different methods used to convey the Word for all to understand. At the end of worship everyone leaves with a Family Page to follow up with what they have learned that day and also a view of what scriptures are to be used in the weeks.
The church is made of made of many generations that is represented by our family tree. From births, to deaths to rites of passage such as confirmation and weddings-- we included everyone in the congregation is invited to join our tree.
