Sunday Worship Details
Come as you are and join us in-person, each Sunday at 10am for worship and fellowship.
Bring the children! We have a special message for your children and grandchildren during Worship. And after they hear the Children’s Message, they can stay in the sanctuary OR go to Children’s Church. There will be an age appropriate Bible lesson from the Grow Kids Curriculum, craft and activities.
You can watch previous services and videos on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Ghent UMC is licensed to stream our FB Live worship services through CCLI #20175590 and One License A-727358.
Join us on first Sundays for Worship Service when we celebrate Holy Communion! We use pre-packaged cups and wafers and have gluten-free options, as well.
4:30 – 6:30pm
Living Nativity and Open House
On Sunday, December 10, at 4:30pm, we will have our Annual Living Nativity and Open House at Ghent. Invite your friends and neighbors to come with you to celebrate Christmas in our sanctuary with cookies, hot cocoa and cider!
If the weather is windy and rainy, experience the wonder of our Savior’s birth with Mary, Joseph, angels, shepherds, and wise men inside our building with the treats. Angel and shepherd costumes are available for our littlest guests to wear. The stable animals from Teeny Tiny Farm, would still be outside at Stockley Gardens.
Organist Brad Norris
Our organist Brad Norris plays our beautiful Casavant organ for our 10am Worship services. Hear him again on Epiphany Sunday, January 7.
Adult Sunday Bible Discussion
Weekly, in-person*, discussions are Sundays, 9 – 9:45am. Meet in the back of the sanctuary. If needed, use the new ramp to the front porch. Please enter through the Stockley Gardens doors. We will maintain safe social distancing to accommodate those with and without COVID vaccines.
This group reviews the Bible using the Standard Lesson Quarterly series.
If you are interested, email Peter Griffin.
Want to Sing or play?
If you would like to sing with us on Sundays, let our Music Director know.
There are also musical opportunities, if you want to play an instrument. The Gathering Jam Band meets 15 minutes before the service on the second Sundays and plays through the service that day. We also provide the music for Messy Church services. If you don’t play an instrument, come out and play the maracas or other hand percussion. Let Nellwyn Beamon know if you have any questions.
Ghent Inspire Book Group
Book Group is on hiatus so everyone can join Rev. Ry’s book study. (See other block.)
Join us for fellowship and a discussion of our chosen book. Ghent Inspire Book Club meets one Monday each month at 7:30pm. These hybrid meetings are in person* and on Zoom. All are welcome to join the meeting for fellowship, whether or not you have read the book.
Online Worship at Noon
(TEMPORARILY HALTED) Tune in for our succinct online worship service on Sundays at noon on our Facebook page! We call it Plugged In. View it alone or with friends and loved ones gathered together. Tune in to quench your thirst with living water during lunch; and deepen your knowledge of the Lord and grow in your faith! Please note that our in-person worship services will no longer be broadcast live, except on special occasions. Stay tuned to your newsletter announcements to know which Sundays will be live!
