Our Services

What are services like?
To know more completely the presence of God and to experience more fully the redeeming love of Christ, we gather for worship. Through music, scripture and the illumined Word of God, we are encouraged in our belief, supported in our faith and comforted in our need. Brecksville United Methodist Church continues to serve the community as a contemporary place of faith, worship and fellowship. With services and programs for all ages and stages, come join us in a place of encouragement and hope! Worship services at 8:45 and 11:15 a.m., Christian Education for all ages 10:00 a.m., with infant and toddler childcare. Summer Sunday worship service June-Aug., 10:00 a.m. and casual outdoor service at 8:30 a.m., (weather permitting.) Easter Sunrise Service 6:30 am., Blossom Hills, 4470 Oaks Road. Children are welcome and participate in a rotational Sunday School. Crib and toddler care is available during both services. Contact the church office for more information.

What is the community like?
“Living in Christ, Serving in Love” Living in Christ begins with knowing that Jesus Christ is the son of God. We want our love of Jesus Christ to be the center of our lives. In everything we do, in everything we say, we strive to express God’s love for us, and our love for him. Generally, serving in love means caring for people. Our belief in Jesus Christ is not enough by itself. We choose to put our faith into action; we serve God by serving others. Specifically, we serve in love when we serve at a soup kitchen, build a home for Habitat for Humanity, assemble disaster relief packages, comfort orphans, befriend a shut-in or rejoice with each other in times of joy. The list of how our church family serves others grows by the day. Our serving helps someone in need. It is hands on. It is real.

What if I'm not a Christian?
“Whoever you are; in whatever faith you were born, whatever creed you profess. If you come into this house to find God You are welcome.” - John Wesley, Founder of Methodism
