Our Services

What are services like?
At FUMC, we strive to provide an experience where people can connect to God and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. We offer two 'styles' of worship to fit your personality and spiritual needs. Our traditional services incorporate liturgy, traditional hymns with organ accompaniment, prayer, scripture, and choral music. Our contemporary service is more free form but still respectful of liturgy and worship. In contemporary service, you will find a variety of instruments, praise music, and a more casual atmosphere. Both services serve Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. We encourage you to visit both services. We hope that one of the services fills your spiritual needs and makes you feel that you've come home.

What is the community like?
We're a friendly, community church with something for everyone. We invite you to join us at one of our services or at any of our activities or events. We'd love to have you.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome EVERYONE to our community.

Mark is a graduate of Merrillville High School, Valparaiso University and has his Masters degree from Duke University. Mark is someone for whom passion, joy and fun in life are still important values. He loves his vocation as a Pastor and finds great satisfaction in it, as well as his hobbies of writing, photography, and collecting 70’s rock and roll music.
