Join us on Sundays at 8:15, 9:30, & 11am at 7740 Lackman Road in Lenexa, KS. You’re always welcome to come exactly as you are!
We also offer Presence Worship offsite on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7pm. Contact Mike Marcus, email@example.com, for more information including location; we meet in one another’s homes.
See below for descriptions of our regularly scheduled services. We also offer special services during Lent, on Christmas Eve, and other occasions, which usually include special music ensembles and other worship experiences.
This service follows a traditional order of worship and often includes corporate statements of faith and responses such as affirmations of faith, the Gloria Patri and doxology. Hymns are usually from either the UMC Hymnal or the newer Faith We Sing hymnal. In addition to the First Light Choir, there are often solo or small ensemble musical offerings at 8:15 as well.
With keyboard, drums, guitars and an array of other instruments, St. Paul’s praise band, BethanyBridge, helps lead a service with an upbeat contemporary feel. BethanyBridge consists of accomplished musicians who bring a unique brand of blues, funk, and R&B to worship. Inclusion of relevant secular music and video play a big role in this service, which also includes a longer intercessory prayer, candle lighting, and Communion each week.
Traditional with a Twist
Our mission statement’s theme of Love, Seek, Serve frames worship at 11:00. The first third of worship consists of acts of devotion like singing traditional and newer hymns and sharing in meaningful liturgy. In the second section we hear God’s word through Scripture, Music, and the pastor’s Message. We then serve through our giving and commitment to go out to the world. The Chancel Choir leads music from September through May with other music groups participating throughout the year.
Presence is a St. Paul’s ministry rooted in building community through experiential worship. We meet in one another’s homes. We’d love to see you! Contact Mike Marcus for more info.
