WHAT TO EXPECT
Whether you've attended church your entire life or never at all, we know it's not easy visiting a church for the first time. You're not quite sure what to expect and you probably have a lot of questions. At Canton UMC, we want to give you the best experience possible.
WHAT TIME ARE YOUR SERVICES?
8:30 AM Traditional Chapel
9:30 AM Contemporary
11:00 AM Traditional Sanctuary
All weekend services are a bit different and each service lasts 60-70 minutes. If you have children, please arrive about 15 minutes early so you have plenty of time to check them in at Canton Kids before the service begins.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Whatever you want! We welcome jeans, t-shirts, ties, tuxedos…you get the idea. Come as you are.
HOW DO I GET THERE?
Canton First UMC is located in Cherokee County, at 930 Lower Scott Mill Rd. The map is HERE!
WHERE CAN I PARK?
If you're a visitor, feel free to park anywhere in our main parking lot. There are parking lot attendants to help show your way. We are establishing shuttles that will run continuously on Sunday mornings for a convenient parking alternative.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
As you enter through the main entrance of Canton First UMC, you can expect a warm welcome from one of our greeters. No matter what questions you might have, just ask. Make sure to stop by our Holy Grounds Café where you can meet and greet others while enjoying a great cup of coffee.
WHAT ARE YOUR SERVICES LIKE?
Weekend services are all different. Our contemporary services offer a blend of dynamic, contemporary worship songs prepared to invite everyone to participate, no matter where you are on your spiritual journey. Sermons are presented in a way that challenges you to connect, reflect, and act upon your relationship with God.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
Canton Kids will be the BEST hour of your kid’s week! All children from birth to 6th grade are invited to join us in a fun, safe, clean, interactive environment where our team of trained volunteers creates an environment your child will want to come back to every week!
