At Carterville First United Methodist Church, we're always excited to welcome new visitors. We hope you'll join us for a service, and we want to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Here's what you can expect when you come to our 9:30 a.m. service.
Our church is located at 301 Pine Street, and our main parking is located behind the church. If you have mobility restrictions or young children to carry, feel free to use one of the spots closest to the door located in the front of the church. We like to keep them free for visitors and people who need assistance.
Please don't worry about what you'll wear to church, for we truly believe people should come to God as they are. You don't need to dress up to get his approval--that comes through Jesus' sacrifice. Once you walk in the doors, you'll see that the congregation has all types of people in all kinds of dress. While a few people in the church wear ties, others like to remind them that Jesus never wore a tie.
When you walk in, find one of our greeters and introduce yourself. They're usually stationed at the doors and they'll show you where everything is. Our greeters can also point you to the restrooms, sanctuary and fellowship area. If you have any questions about the service itself, the greeters are able to provide helpful answers.
