About Us

When you walk into the Sunday morning service at Powers Ferry UMC you will be met with Real People and Real Love. We worship God in many ways because we are blessed to have the talents of our members and the know-how of our staff. On any given Sunday, you will experience the heartfelt music of our choir and praise band combined with the enthusiastic messages delivered throughout the service. You will truly feel God in this place! We are a church that celebrates the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.


The worship service at Powers Ferry UMC is at 11:00 each Sunday morning in the sanctuary. Dress is casual. We begin with a lot of great music from the praise band and the choir. We have communion on the first Sunday of each month, and all are welcome to receive from the Lord's table. Children are welcome in the sanctuary or in the nursery, and following the Children's Moment (mid-way through worship), the children go together for some great fun and learning with our Children's minister, Bezi Jones.

If you missed one of our services, you can find the message below.
