Brings together best of contemporary and traditional
We offer two main services, each offering a blend of contemporary and traditional worship styles.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the format of our church services is changing frequently. Check back here for the latest updates on the services. Please email or call the church if you have any questions.
The 9:00 and the 11:00 am service are held upstairs in the sanctuary. Both services are following covid guidelines to minimize infection risk.
-Face coverings are required at all times during the service
-Hand sanitizer is available throughout the church
Virtual service videos are available on the "Sermons" page.
Sermon by Phone is available for those without internet who want to worship from home. Simply dial the local number 585-207-1858 (it is a free call) and you will you hear a voice tell you that you are about to listen to the sermon from First UMC of Canandaigua. Every Sunday, we will put that day's sermon up on the Sermon By Phone service.
When You Arrive:
Parking is provided in the back of the church. The main entrance is located on the south side of the building, on the left side from Main Street. A handicap elevator is available via a separate door to the left of this main entrance. Once inside, go up the stairs and you will be greeted by members of the church who can help get you settled.
Children are WELCOME in both services! We know that children tend to wiggle and squawk a bit, so please don't feel embarrassed by it. We want you and your children here! There are activity bags available in a bin on the table just outside the sanctuary. At the end of the service, return the bag to the bin! A children's message is included during worship. We encourage you to worship together and enjoy the joyful exuberance that children bring.
There is CHILD CARE available during both services as well. Families with children ages 1-10 can bring their kids to the child care room. An usher can give you directions. At the child care room, you will sign in your child and be given a buzzer that will be used to contact you during the service if needed. Once the service is complete, please return to the child care room and sign your child out.
Most people dress casually, some wear semi-formal, but the most important thing is that you feel comfortable. The bible never said you have to wear a suit and tie to get into heaven, so what you wear isn't a big deal to us either.
Friends! We are doing another Immerse Bible Reading experience together beginning SUNDAY JANUARY 9!! This time, we'll be reading the first 5 books of the Bible, as a church, in this study called Immerse: Beginnings. You can get your book at the church office or order it yourself online HERE. We hope you'll join us!
