Worship Here

Our worship at First UMC Burlington attempts to find the balance between the power of ancient liturgies and the realities of life in the 21st century. The Bible is the canvass upon which we paint the stories of our lives. Jesus taught some of the most complex spiritual lessons with the simplest of stories.  We invite you to join us for worship Sunday mornings at 9:45. Check out our Facebook Page and, for info regarding what’s going in the parish, go to our First UMC Burlington Community and ask to join the group and the discussion. 

We continue our summer series – “Transitions”. Life presents us with one challenge after another. In our parish we are transitioning from two pastors to one. Our church facilities are undergoing transitions as we acknowledge the sale of the parsonage at 25 Buell Street. This week – July 1-7 – as we celebrate the birthday of our nation, think of how radical was the transition from colonists to rebels to citizens of a new land.  From the personal to the professional, the family to the nation, we are on the move. Join us for worship this summer as we explore the transitions of our lives.  

One More Thing … Parking! Parking is available free on Sunday mornings at the parking garage directly across South Winooski Avenue from our church. You can enter either on Cherry or Bank Streets!
