Traditional Service

If you connect to God through the time-tested, sure foundations of the church's historic worship, our traditional service is for you. Our second worship service on Sunday mornings, this service begins at 10:30am and brings to life the centuries-rich worshiping tradition of Methodism for the 21st century. Read more below about this service, and if it will be your first time worshiping with us, get even more information on our I'm New Here page.


The music in our traditional service typically follows selections from the United Methodist Hymnal, a tool which has helped Methodists worship for centuries. Hymns follow the liturgical year and the Scriptural theme for the day.

If you're already Methodist, you'll likely recognize most of the hymns, but be ready to learn new hymns of the faith, as well!

Beyond the music, our traditional service also incorporates other elements of our historic faith, such as responsive liturgy and creeds. Come see how your life is transformed when you affirm your faith with the same words Christians have spoken for 2,000 years!


Each week, Pastor Michael brings a message that is both biblical and applicable to your life. We believe that the sermon is one of the best opportunities for you to hear and feel God's Spirit and be transformed by it.

Most Sundays, our sermons are organized into series that multiply the impact of any one sermon. These series track closely to Scripture, in addition to the church calendar or what is happening in the world.

Holy Communion

At Wahoo First UMC, we celebrate Holy Communion regularly. Usually, that means on the first Sunday of the month.

In United Methodist fashion, everyone is welcome to receive Communion. You do not have to be a member of our church, or any church for that matter. You don't need to do anything in return; we believe Christ sets the Communion Table and welcomes everyone without condition.

We have a gluten-free option for anyone with a non-gluten/gluten-sensitive diet. We use unfermented grape juice instead of wine, realizing that Communion should not be a source of temptation for those in recovery from alcohol addiction.

We want nothing more than for you to join us with Christ in Communion!
