Welcome to Midway UMC

Midway United Methodist Church is a place where people can experience Jesus through others, and be unafraid to ask and explore the hard questions. 
We believe in authentic relationships - with each other and with Christ - where believers can do life together, learn and grow on their spiritual journeys, discover their God-given gifts, and use those gifts to help others.
Have questions? We're happy to help!

Midway United Methodist Church is a congregation of authentic Christ followers who seek to encourage each other as we grow in our relationships with God, through intentional worship and connection.

Where are you located?
Midway United Methodist Church is located at 5025 Atlanta Highway, Alpharetta, GA 30004.  Located diagonally from Midway Meal House. We are on the corner of Atlanta Highway (Georgia 9) and Francis Circle, across from Campground Road.  See our location on Google Maps.
 
What are the service times and what should I expect?
Expect to be warmly greeted and to feel right at home on your first visit, whether online or in person.  You’ll find the worship services are simple to follow, the teaching is impactful and relevant to your life, and there are no insider secrets. There are friendly people eager to help. Our goal is simply for you to feel welcomed and inspired. Each service varies in worship style and personality, with music styles ranging from traditional to contemporary.

A typical service lasts about 50 minutes.

At the traditional services (8:30 & 9:45), you'll hear hymns and share in the traditional United Methodist order of worship, which consists of the Lord's Prayer, and the Apostle's Creed (or another creed stating what we believe), with a scripture reading and sermon delivered by one of our clergy.

At the contemporary service (11:00), you'll hear contemporary Christian songs led by our worship team, with a scripture reading and message delivered by our clergy.

At each service, we share in Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. Elements served are gluten and dairy free. We also have individually sealed elements available.

Before you visit, we invite you to download our app (Apple Store, Google Store).

When should I arrive?
Sunday morning worship services begin at 8:30, 9:45, and 11 a.m.
You should plan to arrive at the church about 10 minutes ahead of the worship service you wish to attend. This allows ample time for parking, entering the building and finding a seat.

8:30 and 9:45am services are located in the historic chapel that faces Highway 9.
Enter up the steps facing the road, or use the ramp located behind the chapel.

This entrance is under the drive-through portico facing Highway 9.
Restrooms are located in the main campus building.
Greeters are stationed near the entrance to each building, to welcome you and, once you enter, to help you find your way.

What should I wear?
Dress comfortably when you come to worship. Some of our attendees wear their “Sunday best,” but most come in more comfortable clothes. Don’t worry about what you wear – you’ll be welcomed no matter how fancy or casual you are. Just come to worship God!
 
What should I bring?
Our worship services are Bible-based. You may also wish to bring your own Bible. Or download our app for access to the day’s Scripture reading.

What's available for my children?
Children are welcome to participate in the worship service. We have “Wiggle Bags” and “Sermon Notes for Kids” available for children of any age (yes, sometimes the adults like to color or take notes!). If your child fills out a “Sermon Notes for Kids” they can turn it in for a prize from the treasure box after service.
We also provide childcare for children six weeks to first grade at all services.
