We worship one God but offer two distinct types of worship through our traditional and contemporary services.

Traditional Worship Service

Our Traditional Worship Services are in our Sanctuary at 8:30 am and 11:00 am on Sundays. We also live-stream our 11:00 am Traditional Services on the FCUMC YouTube channel. Past services are available on our YouTube channel. Please join us in-person or online!

The Journey Worship Service

The Journey Worship Service is in our Gym at 11:00am on Sundays. This service is live-streamed at 11:00am each Sunday on the FCUMC YouTube channel. This service features contemporary Christian music and a relevant message where you are invited to come as you are to be transformed into the person God created you to be. Past services are available on our YouTube channel.

What is there for kids?

Fountain Kids (Birth – 5th Grade)
Fountain Kids provides a loving, caring and safe environment for children to learn and grow in their faith. Birth – 5th grade students and their families are provided with tools to enhance faith experiences at home as well as at church. Fountain City United Methodist Church, through Fountain Kids, strives to partner with parents through the most important phases of a child’s life.

Groups for Youth (Grades 6-12)
The Youth Ministry of FCUMC exists to REACH out to all youth with the saving grace of Jesus, helping them GROW into mature followers of Jesus in order to SERVE God and others with their lives. In pursuit of this goal, we engage in weekly youth group, small groups, retreats, and mission trips. Wherever youth are in their personal journey with Christ, we are here to help middle school and high school students take the next step in following Jesus.

Sunday School

At Fountain City UMC, when it comes to Sunday School classes, we have something for everyone in the family: Infant and Toddlers, Elementary Age Children, Youth (Grades 6-12), Young Adults, and Adults of All Ages. Each class offers an opportunity to strengthen your faith through fellowship and dialogue with other Christians.
