WORSHIP AT ATLANTA FIRST



Our weekly worship service is held on Sunday mornings at 11 am. Following the traditional format of the United Methodist Church, we worship through music, prayer, scripture reading and an uplifting message provided by Pastor Jasmine. The service features music played on our organ, singing by our chancel choir and guest singers, and frequently a solo performer during the offertory. Every service begins with the chiming of the hour by our historic bell. Guests and members are invited to volunteer to help ring the bell at the start of worship!


On the first Sunday of each month we partake the Sacrament of Holy Communion. This sacred breaking of bread reenacts the Last Supper, a pivotal moment in Jesus' ministry with his Disciples. Through the words spoken and the consumption of the sanctified bread and juice, we admit our sins, and reaffirm our faith in Jesus and the miracle of his resurrection.


For a more complete worship experience, we invite you to attend one of our Sunday School classes that meet at 9:45 am Sunday mornings.


For a more information about worship at Atlanta First, please contact Pastor Robert H. McMichael, III our Assistant Pastor of Worship Arts and Mission Ministries.


We welcome children of all ages to Atlanta First, who are invited to attend worship with their families. Pastor Jasmine always makes a point to deliver an uplifting message to the attending children during the Children’s moment in worship. We also offer children’s church and there is a staffed nursery for infants and toddlers available from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm. For more information, please visit our Children's Ministry Page or email children@atlantafirstumc.org.




UPCOMING SERMON SERIES:


In October we'll be celebrating a churchwide generosity series called "Defying Gravity." Over a four-week period we'll examine the generous life - what it is and why it can be hard to experience. We'll be studying the topic of generosity, insights from experts, and conversations with generous people about their goals and habits. We want to understand why generosity brings people joy and what forces work against it. Many of us want to experience the significance of blessing others but feel trapped by past decisions and misled by a society that bombards us with messages of having more and having better.


The good news is that Jesus offers us a way to "defy gravity" and break free from the culture of more. In October, come hear what the Bible and others say about how to experience a generous life. There will be exercises and challenges during the series to help you consider your relationship with money, possessions, and giving. One of these is the CLean-Out CHallenge. Mark your calendar now for Saturday, October 21st from 9am to 12pm!


You won't want ot miss a single Sunday of "Defying Gravity!"
