Worship Services

Worship meets a vital need in our lives, it celebrates and nurtures our relationship with God. We worship to experience the presence of God and to be reminded of God's love.

But how we choose to meet God, to have that intimate conversation, can be as different as each person who walks through the church's door. At First United Methodist Church of Arlington, we offer different styles of worship services each Sunday to help you have that personal encounter with God's presence, so you can be renewed by the experience.


8:15, 9:30 and 11 am | Sanctuary

At Home: Service posted at 8 am on Vimeo & Facebook, Facebook Watch Party at 11 am

Every Sunday, two traditional services are offered in the Sanctuary, one at 8:15 am, and another at 11 am, when the Adult Chancel Choir provides the music. These services are led by Rev. Dr. Chris J. Hayes. Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month.

For those seeking the ritual of communion each Sunday, but still in a traditional worship setting, the church conducts the Wesleyan Worship in the Sanctuary at 9:30 am. The Adult Chancel Choir performs at this service. Rev. Dr. Chris J. Hayes also preaches God's word at this time.

Somos una comunidad hispana acogedora que crece en gracia a través de la adoración y el estudio, a su vez compartimos el amor de Dios al servir a los necesitados. Ministerio Hispano Cristo Rey es dirigido por nuestra Pastora Ada Fonseca y somos parte de “First United Methodist Church of Arlington”. Queremos que seas parte de nuestro ministerio y de nuestra comunidad de Fe.

En nuestro servicio de adoración, buscamos experimentar la presencia de Dios a través de nuestro compromiso con las escrituras, la música, la oración y los sacramentos.

La Primera Iglesia Metodista Unida de Arlington cree que no importa de donde somos o qué lengua hablamos porque somos todos miembros de la familia de Dios. Por eso tenemos un servicio de adoración hispanohablante cada domingo para extender las paredes de nuestra iglesia para incluir la comunidad circundante. La liturgía está completamente en español pero todos están bienvenidos, no importa qué lengua hablan.

First United Methodist Church of Arlington believes that no matter where we come from or what language we speak, we are all members of God’s family. For this reason, we have a Spanish-speaking service every Sunday in an effort to expand the walls of our church into the surrounding community. The liturgy is completely in Spanish, but all are welcome no matter what language they speak.
