The service typically lasts about 1 hour.

Is there a dress code?
Nope. Come as you are.  God’s welcome is not based on race, gender, economic level, clothing style, or past behavior.  God’s invitation extends to anyone who genuinely seeks God, so our aim is to welcome in the same way.  

Will Communion be served?
We observe Communion the first Sunday of every month. You are welcome to participate, regardless of church membership or baptism, if you can affirm our invitation: will you commit to loving God and loving others as the highest purpose of your life?

What does “Free Methodist” mean?
The Free Methodist Church was started in the 1860’s by a group of Methodist pastors who refused to sell seats in the church to wealthier families. Selling seats was a popular fundraising technique at the time. Out of concern for the poor, some pastors insisted that their churches would be free of charge. Thus, they called themselves “Free” Methodists. The “Free” in Free Methodist also shares a connection to the abolitionist movement. Free Methodist churches were staunchly opposed to slavery at a time when it was still socially acceptable.
