Be Our Guest

We hope to meet you soon!

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating,

and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking.

We want to help make your experience at FUMC Joshua a great one!​

Sunday at 8:30am + 11am

Service Times
What to Expect

Sundays at FUMC Joshua are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect

to feel welcomed as our guest!

FUMC Joshua offers two distinct worship experiences every Sunday:

  • 8:30am is a relaxed, informal service for the early riser featuring traditional hymns,

a choir, and relevant Scripture lessons​

  • 11am is a crowd-drawing favorite featuring a full praise band, contemporary music,

and messages that encourage and challenge listeners to live their faith more fully

  • Both services are available online via our LIVE STREAM

  • COMMUNION, or The Lord’s Supper, is served at both services the first Sunday of every month with homemade bread and Welch’s grape juice. Gluten-free wafers are available.

 

Worship at FUMC Joshua lasts about 60 minutes. Song lyrics are projected onto screens

so you can sing along and/or engage however you feel most comfortable. Most Sundays include a time for children to come to the front for a short message and blessing from Miss Dana, our children’s ministry director. A time for personal and corporate prayer will be shared as well as an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus from Pastor Dale.

What About My Kids?

We believe that children should have a blast at church every single week – and at FUMC Joshua, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our kids program. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes or so to get your children signed in and situated.

 

We believe in building a strong faith foundation early in life, all children are invited

to participate in worship. Activity bags are in the Worship Center and filled with

age-appropriate Bible lessons, coloring pages, and other quiet activities. Families in need

of privacy or a less crowded space during worship are invited to the Soothing Room located near the women’s restrooms. Changing tables are conveniently located in all restrooms.

 

FUMC Joshua offers families with small children a safe, secure nursery in the Education Building for infants and toddlers up to 4 years old. Our Nursery Team is comprised of staff who are MinistrySafe certified and CPR/First Aid trained. We want parents and families to feel as comfortable leaving their children in our care as children are excited to be here with us!

 

FUMC Joshua Youth are middle and high school students who gather regularly to form a strong connection to God and one another through worship, discipleship, retreats, and service projects. Students gather every Sunday at 9:45am for a Bible lesson and again at 4:30pm

for discipleship activities, games, and a meal. They meet every Wednesday at 6pm for a devotional and prayer.

Allergy Friendly Campus

We strive to care for those who suffer with food allergies and intolerances.

Because of the severity of reactions in current students, FUMC Joshua is a PEANUT-FREE CAMPUS. Do not bring any peanuts or peanut products. If your child has any type of allergy

or food intolerance, please notify Dana Gomez (Children’s Ministry Director) or Jennifer Higgins (Nursery Coordinator) upon check-in.
