Southern Pines United Methodist Church

SoPines UMC normally offers two worship experiences on Sunday morning at 9:00 AM and 11:15 AM in the sanctuary. The early service is a Contemporary Service led by the Praise Band. The use of an audio/visual display during the worship service integrates Liturgy, song lyrics, and relevant passages of Scripture.
The 11:15 service is a traditional experience of worship featuring a chancel choir. The service is more liturgical than the Contemporary Service, and the signing of hymns feature prominently in this service of worship.
SoPines UMC values faith at an early age and a children's sermon is part of each almost every service except for communion Sundays (the first Sunday of each month in both Sunday worship services). Children also have the option of taking part in Kids Own Worship (KOW) which begins after the children's sermon.
Nursery services are available each Sunday beginning at 8:45 AM through the end of the 12:30 PM.
Please join us in worship at either service when in-person gathers return! You are also encouraged to check out Sunday School (for children, youth, and adults) which starts at 10:15 AM.
A Holy Communion service is available most Tuesdays of the year at Noon in the Wesley Chapel located downstairs. The service is 30-minutes that included a devotion, singing, prayer, and the receiving of Holy Communion. If you would like more information about this service, please contact the church office.
We'll do our best to make you feel welcomed, no matter who you are! Don't believe us? Give us a try!

SoPines UMC COVID-19 UPDATES
Whether you have been a Christian for 75 years or are brand new to your faith, profess to be a life-long United Methodist, or claim no affiliation, we invite you to check us out.
Starting July 5th at 10 AM we will resume in-person worship services at a reduced capacity to ensure proper social distancing as well as everyone's health and safety. We will continue to live stream the service in addition to our newly added 'drive-in' service option at 8:30 AM.
Please visit our Worship With Us Safely page to read an important message from Pastor Tommy and the guidelines for both the drive-in and in-person services.
Let us embrace John Wesley's three rules:
"Do no harm. Do good. Stay in love with God." as we navigate this unique time together. We believe the church is its people and not a building.
