A Brief Overview of Ministries
Our desire at Marlton United Methodist Church is to provide a nurturing and caring Christian environment so that individuals and families can grow in God’s grace and develop a vital relationship with Jesus Christ. While we firmly believe Bible knowledge is essential for every believer, we also believe that developing Christ-like character is crucial. We want to provide you with the best possible opportunities for worship and spiritual formation. As Methodists, we believe there is an important balance between holiness (character) and love (action). We believe that Jesus accepts us as we are, but loves us too much to keep us that way. In other words, he wants to transform us into Christlikeness. As a community of faith, our goal is to make disciples of Jesus Christ and equip them to serve through God’s mercy and love in this world. Simply put, we do not want to be pew-sitters, we want to make a difference for the Lord!
Sunday services are held at 8:30 a.m. & 11:00 a.m. The 8:30 a.m. service is more traditional in nature and music is usually played on either the organ or piano. Our 11:00 a.m. service is contemporary and music is played by our Praise Band. Feel free to experiment with both times and worship formats to find what fits with your schedule and worship tastes. Both services have a special message time for children. Summer Worship 10:00 a.m. only.
Music is an important part of worship. We have choral & instrumental groups that support worship services. Both children and adults are welcome to participate.
Sunday School for all ages help people to grow in God’s Word. Bible studies are held at different times through the week.
Small Groups provide Bible study and fellowship in intimate settings. Small groups provide personal caring and accountability not as easily found in larger settings. We believe small groups are very important for Christian growth.
A clean, modern facility provides safe, loving care to infants and toddlers while you attend our 11 a.m. worship service. Young children enjoy Junior Church especially designed for ages 4 – 4th grade during our 11 a.m. worship.
A vibrant youth program (The UNDERGROUND) is provided for 6th - 12th grade students. Bible studies as well as other activities help them to grow in their faith.
Our Safe Sanctuaries Ministy helps ensure the safety and peace of mind of our children, youth, vulnerable adults and the adults who work with and care for them. Our Safe Sanctuaries policy states that adults must be regular attendees of our church for at least 6 months, and must undergo a criminal background check before working with children, youth or vulnerable adults. This includes anyone involved in our youth program, Sunday school, nursery, children’s choir, etc. Our policy also provides for at least two adults (or one adult and a “floater”) to be present at all times when caring for children, youth and vulnerable adults.
Our church family contributes to missionaries serving the Lord in the U.S.A. and overseas. We actively serve in local mission projects. Evangelism is one of the major reasons for our existence. Christ in his Great Commission commands us to show love and in the Great Commandment compels us to be evangelically oriented.
