Our Academic Year Schedule 

10:00 am Morning Ministry:

Our morining worship gathers in the sanctuary at 10:00 am. Music is led alternating between our beautiful organ and the Steinway piano. Our sanctuary choir provides a variety of musical offerings as well. The format of the service is traditional, but with varying liturgy and worship elements.  Our children begin with us in worship. Following the sermon they travel down to our education wing for Sunday school with our adult teachers. 

Following worship we join together in a coffee/tea fellowship in the Fellowship Hall, quick journey from the sanctuary. The teachers will bring our children up to the fellowship time around 11:15 to meet their parents/guardians. A nutritional snack is provided for them, along with the fellowship foods.

5:00 pm The Gathering Evening Ministry:

The Gathering is a relatively new ministry here at First UMC Oneonta. Worship begins at 5:00 pm in the sanctuary with our awesome band, Crossfire. Lyrics and other details are projected on a big screen and the worship lighting is lower creating an intimate feel in our large space. Following worship is a community meal and educational ministries. See our Gathering page and Education pages.

Holy Communion

We serve Holy Communion normally on the first Sundays of each month and on holy days, such as Christmas, Easter, and           Pentecost. Our Communion bread is gluten free, homemade, and tasty. We are happy to accomodate other allergies, food intolerances, or needs. Simply speak to the pastor or lay leaders.
