Do you ever feel like you’re wandering in the wilderness, not sure of where to go or what to do? You are not alone. In fact, the Lenten season – a season that prepares us to celebrate Easter – is based in the 40 years that the people in the Old Testament wondered in the wilderness and the 40 days that Jesus spent in the wilderness. Wilderness times can challenge us, teach us, prepare us, and deliver us!
Our Lessons In the Wilderness series focuses on what the “wilderness” can teach us that will help us to focus on God, how to survive the wilderness, and how to be ready to emerge into abundant life!
Sundays during Lent
Live Online Worship at 11:00 am
During this time of social-distancing, our Sanctuary is currently closed to in-person worship. You are instead invited to worship with us online in one of our Live Streams:
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.
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 online Sunday School classes that meet at 9:45 am Sunday mornings.
For a more information about worship at Atlanta First, please contact our Worship Team at Worship@AtlantaFirstUMC.org.
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.
