 Worship Services

JFUMC is the oldest church in Jacksonville and yet the most contemporary.  We have something for everyone and welcome people from ALL walks of life.  On Sundays, we offer a blended Worship Service at 10:00 am in the Sanctuary, combining traditional and contemporary styles of worship.  We have a hand bell choir, chancel choir, praise team, children's times, hymns, as well as upbeat praise music, liturgies, prayers, first Sunday communion and, of course, preaching!  Our Senior Pastor, Clif Christopher, leads this Service.  Assisting him is our Associate Pastor, Brad Moore, and Charles Watt, Minister of Pastoral Care.  We also offer Sunday School classes for all ages beginning at 8:45 am.  In your search for a church home, if you find yourself with any need of concern, please do not hesitate to call on us.  We would be honored to be of service to you.
