Connect Through Worship and Worship Planning
Our Traditional Service is held at 8:45 AM and the Contemporary service is held at 11:00 AM. Spanish Fort UMC provides guidance and training to equip all who seek to get connected! Here is how you can get involved.
Each Sunday we need people to help direct worship attendees, pass out attendance pads, collect offering, count attendance, take offering to the bank, and provide assistance to acolytes and pastors. Contact: (Traditional) church office 626-1334; (Contemporary) Rob Hoover 621-1107

Once a month you can help by re-stocking pencils, attendance sheets, and resources in the Sanctuary pews. Contact: Gail Yance 626-2788
Use SFUMC’s recipe to bake gluten free bread for the first Sunday in each month. Set up and clean up communion elements for worship. (Filling up juice cups, bread trays, and setting up on the altar.) Contact: (Traditional) Connie Cayson 604-6207; (Contemporary) Carol Hodgson 937-6258.

As the Christian calendar changes, so do the color of the paraments in worship. You could help prepare the space by making sure the right colors are present, checking the oil in the candles, and making sure the space is set up properly. Contact: Church Office
A baptism is a special occasion for the entire church - it is the moment when a person is sealed with water and the Spirit, marking them as a member of God's family. When we are blessed to experience the sacrament of baptism in our worship, you can connect by helping prepare the elements, being here to greet the family, and taking a photo for us to share. Contact Lynn Langley 401-9876

To help make the worship experience been seen and heard in the best way, you can connect by learning to operate the sound board/lights/presentation software for worship, youth, children, or other events. Contact: Al Jacobi 753-5143

These important helpers assist the pastors weekly with the services, as well as in the sacraments of baptism and communion. To sign up, you must be in the 5th grade or older and you must complete the annual Acolyte training. For more information, contact the church office at 626-1334.
