Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
This FAQ list should hopefully help you learn more about who we are. If you have any additional questions, we invite you to call the church office at 256-447-7421. We hope to see you on Sunday!
When are your worship times?
We have two worship services on Sunday morning: 8:30 Contemporary Service which features music accompanied by acoustic guitar; and 11:00 a.m., our Traditional Service with liturgies, creeds, choir, and hymns. To find out more about our services, please visit the worship page.
Do you have childcare and Sunday School for my kids?
Yes! Children’s church is available during all morning services for children two years to second grade. Typically, children leave when directed immediately before the sermon and walk with the Children’s Church workers to the Children’s church area. There they hear a Bible story, sing songs, and complete a related project. Parents are welcome to go with their child if they wish, or stay in the service. The nursery is available to all children two years old and younger. Sunday School is available at 9:45 a.m. for all ages. For specific room assignments and class schedules please see the Children’s page.
Will I be made to stand up, or introduce myself, or be singled out in any way?
No. We respect your privacy and your desire to worship with us at your own comfort level. We’ll never call on you from the pews, or ask you to introduce yourself. You may be warmly greeted before or after the service by any of the number of awesome individuals who attend Piedmont First UMC.
Can my children come with me to worship?
Yes! You can choose to utilize our children’s programming or have your child stay with you.
Do you celebrate Communion?
Yes. We celebrate communion every Sunday at the 8:30 a.m. service, and the first Sunday of each month in the 11:00 a.m. service.
What do I need to do to be baptized?
Baptisms are scheduled in consultation with the parents and/or person being baptized, and coordinated with family and church calendars, in consultation with the pastor. Please call the church office at 256-447-7421 for more information.
May I participate in Communion if I am not a member – or even a United Methodist?
Absolutely – we celebrate communion in an “open table” way – meaning that everyone is welcome to receive communion – you needn’t be a member of Piedmont First or even a United Methodist. All that is asked is that you be seeking an open relationship with Christ.
What is your music program like?
Piedmont First has an adult choir and handbell choir. Practice is held on Wednesday evenings. For information, please contact us via email or at 256-447-7421.
Do you have Sunday school for adults?
Yes. We have a full array of Sunday School offerings at 9:45 a.m. In addition, we have numerous other small group studies, from sermon-based growth groups, to Disciple Bible study classes. Please visit our Small Groups page for more information.
