9 a.m. Early Sanctuary Worship Service
The 9 a.m. traditional worship service at Brainerd UMC is designed to offer a worship opportunity for those who prefer an earlier time and a shorter service. This service includes a scripture reading, affirmation of faith, prayer time, familiar songs and hymns, sermon and offering. The congregation is invited to sing several hymns, usually familiar, during the service and we sing to piano accompaniment. Soloists and other groups offer their gifts of music on selected Sundays. Terry Sanford is church pianist and Ron Starnes is director of music.
