SUNDAY WORSHIP
In-Person & Live on Facebook
We are in phase two of our repopening plan. We currently offer two services on Sunday mornings. Starting at 8:30 AM, the Traditional service is held in the Sanctuary in the main building. Our contemporary service, By the Well, is held in the Family Life Center (FLC) across the courtyard at 11 AM. As an act of love for one another, we require masks during worship and are practicing social distancing.

What About the Kids?
We are excited to begin to slowly open children’s ministry! Our first step will be offering Nursery and Early Childhood (infant through pre-k only) during our Sunday morning worship services. Elementary age children will need to stay with their family in worship at this time. If you would like your child/children to attend, please be aware of the following:
 
1. We will open our rooms for drop-off 15 mins prior to service beginning. Once adult services begin, you will not be able to drop off your child/children.. Please send ONE person to check-in your child/childrenas this helps minimize the number of people at the check-in point.
 
2. Check-in will be located in Hallway #2 of the main building. There will be a table with someone to greet you and walk you and your child/children through the process. You will check-in your child/children and they will be screened for any COVID symptoms and have their temperature taken. Then one of the staff will escort your child/children to their classroom. Please note parents will not be allowed past the check-in table. When you pick up, the same procedures will be in place. Please be timely in picking up your child/children so our staff has the time needed to properly sanitize the toys and classrooms.
 
3. Please do not send any bottles, cups, or food with your child/children. Because of the short amount of time they will be in the room and sanitary reasons, we will not serve food or drinks to your child/children. If they require a drink, our staff will have disposable cups and water to offer them. Also, please only bring what is essential in their diaper bags and limit lovies, toys, and pacifiers.
 
4. Our staff is following the department of health and human services of Texas child care licensing rules and regulations in partnership with our preschool, God’s Garden, during this time. All staff are required to wear a mask at all times, children will wash their hands before entering a classroom, and shared toys and books will be limited and properly sanitized. We will use different rooms for the two worship services to limit cross exposure.
 
If you have any questions, please contact Keelee Allen at keeleea@fumcmidlo.org. Thank you and we are looking forward to seeing our kids and hearing their laughter, insight, and singing in our hallways once again!
Elementary kids programs have not yet returned on Sunday mornings.. When we do return, children three and up will be released during worship service to attend Godly Play. Staff and Ministry Safe volunteers will escort them to Godly Play in the Fellowship Hall of the main building. Of course, children are always welcome to stay and worship with their parents.

What to Wear
People come to worship at FUMC Midlothian wearing a wide range of clothing styles. Men wear everything from jeans and casual shirts to suits and ties. Women wear skirts, slacks, jeans, dresses, and pantsuits. Though we tend to be less formal in our attire, it’s best to wear what you are comfortable wearing to worship. We’re just glad to see you!
