Worship & Bible Studies at Oregon Community UMC
Oregon Community is a small group of believers who know and care deeply for each other. Our worship services are grounded in scripture and focused on transforming lives. The worship style is a laid back blend of traditional hymns, modern liturgies, and sermons meant to spark conversation and deep thinking.
We have some traditional elements including prayer, creeds, and liturgies--and communion on the first Sunday of the month. However, the preaching is more contemporary and has a style focused on teaching and interaction with the congregation.
As far as a "dress code," there is none. Come as you feel comfortable. Some people are in suits, others are in shorts, and the pastor is usually in jeans. We care more about getting to know you and meeting your needs than about how you look.
Church is about getting to come into the presence of God and experiencing the love of Jesus the savior. And it is about doing so in community with other people who have some of the same struggles and hopes as you. We invite you to join us and pray that you will find the experience uplifting and meaningful.
You are invited to join us at 9am for worship every week.
It would be excellent if every member of the congregation was involved in at least one Bible Study during the week. Please choose one study to attend each week, and bring a friend to join you. We have several opportunities:.
LifeTree Cafe is at the General Sutter Inn in Lititz on Mondays at 7pm: Lifetree Café is an outreach ministry where people who are not currently part of a church can come out and discuss a variety of issues where faith and life intersect—including hot-button issues like relationships, immigration, forgiveness, loss, etc. Bring friends who are not currently engaged with a church out for dinner and a discussion. You can buy a meal and/or drinks during the session. Visit www.lifetreecafelancaster.us for more info, video clips, and a list of upcoming topics.
Friday Bible Study & Prayer at Faith UMC at 10:00am: Oregon Community UMC and Faith UMC are partnering together on Friday Mornings for Bible Study and prayer. This is a chance to honestly explore your faith—and how it impacts the rest of your life. We would love to have you join us. Faith UMC is located at 1290 Fruitville Pike, Lancaster, PA 17601 -- just North of East Petersburg/Valley Road (only 7-10 minutes from Oregon). We are meeting in the Educational Wing.
