 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 or concern, please do not hesitate to call on us.  We would be honored to be of service to you.

Sunday, June 26th


This Sunday, June 26th, please join us as Bro. Clif Christopher will be preaching his final sermon.  The Staff Parish Relations Committee wants to commend Bro. Clif for his outstanding work as our Interim Senior Pastor for the past five months.  He dealt with several difficult issues during that time, and his experience and leadership proved to be a great asset to our Church.  He chose to tackle issues head-on rather than leave those issues to be addressed by our new Senior Pastor.  Bro. Clif was successful in finding several outstanding new Staff members which will enable Bro. Nathan Kilbourne to start with a great Staff in place.  The SPRC, and JFUMC congregation, want to sincerely thank Br. Clif, and his wife Melanie, for their contributions to this congregation. 




Next Sunday, July 2nd, we invite you to join us in welcoming Rev. Nathan Kilbourne as the new Senior Pastor of JFUMC!  Bro. Kilbourne is coming to us from Vilonia First UMC, and we are very excited to have him join our family.   You can meet personally with Bro. Kilbourne during the Sunday School hour from 8:30 to 9:30 am in the Connection Center.  We are looking forward to the journey moving forward as Bro. Nathan Kilbourne leads us!
