Worship

We gather for worship at 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings both virtually and in-person indoors in our Fellowship Hall.

Frankford Plains UMC welcomes all to our services!  Currently during our time of COVID-19 we celebrate our services using inspirational recorded music, a children’s time, prayer, scripture, a sermon, time for community celebrations, and joys and concerns.

Special services are held throughout the year as well.  Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunrise near a cross in the meadow (if possible), Easter Service, and Christmas Eve are some of the highlights of our church calendar.

Join us for virtual worship Sundays at 10 AM – at https://www.facebook.com/frankfordplains/live
