We are so glad you want to visit First Ozark United Methodist Church. It is our mission to make you feel like you belong, even before you got to the parking lot. Our church family believes that they have been welcomed with radical hospitality by Jesus, and we are called to welcome you in the same way (Romans 15:7). We know you have questions, and some are answered below. If there is something we didn't answer please contact us using the "Contact Us" tab above, or call our church office at 334-774-2569. We cannot wait to meet you!
We have three different morning worship services. Our traditional services are held in the sanctuary and are at 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. We also offer a contemporary worship experience at 9 a.m., located in our Family Life Center.
Sunday school classes start at 9:45 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.
Visit the worship tab for more information on our worship services and Sunday school classes.
It doesn't matter what you wear, as long as you're comfortable. If you want to get dressed up, that's great. If you'd rather wear jeans and a T-shirt, that's great too! We just want you to be HERE.
Our mission is to grow in Christ, not to be the "best-dressed" church. Therefore, come as you are and be ready to learn about Jesus.
At our 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. services you will experience a traditional style of worship. In the sanctuary music is often lead by organ/piano and our marvelous choir, and the songs come from The United Methodist Hymnal. These services practice an order of worship that has been passed down for many years.
At our Now@9 service you will worship in a more contemporary setting. Held in the Family Life Center, our contemporary service is lead musically by our wonderful praise band. The music is largely contemporary Christian music from the last several years, and you might hear a song you have heard on The Joy FM.
Yes! We offer nursery care for babies and toddlers from birth to 3-years-old. Our Sunday morning nursery is located in Room 118 on the first floor.
We also have Children's Worship for both our 9:00 a.m. service and our 11:00 a.m. service. During our 9:00 a.m. service children are released during offering. In the 11:00 a.m. service children are invited to the altar for our Children's Moment, then released for Children's Worship. However, children are invited to remain in worship on Communion Sundays.
