What to Expect

Welcome to Dearborn United Methodist Church. We invite you to learn more about what to expect on this page. We warmly invite you to join us for worship or any event that interests you. We hope this page answers some of your questions and gives an understanding of what to expect when you arrive at our church.

Where to Park:

The church has a parking lot beside the building (where the car is parked in the picture). Most attendees park here and it is available to everyone. We reserve parking on Sunday mornings alongside the building for guests and also for those with mobility issues. 

Entering the Church

We are currently starting work on a new sanctuary after our decommission of our 125 year old sanctuary. As we move forward we may have to adjust to different conditions. The current plan is that the glass doors, by the metal bell tower, will be our main entrance in and out. When you enter take a left down the hall then a right to reach our current worship space.

We will try to update this information if anything changes.


While we begin work on our new sanctuary we will be worshiping in our Fellowship Hall also known as Shannon Hall.
We have Bibles and hymnals on the table or in the rack under each chair for use during the service. We do use TVs in our worship to project hymns, Bible verses, and for special messages that require visuals or sound. Worship at 11 PM is traditional in style and we sing hymns accompanied by piano. Dress is casual and comfortable, shorts in the summer and jeans in the winter are common.
We serve Holy Communion (Lord's Supper) the first Sunday of each month. Gluten-free bread is available and all are welcome to receive the bread and juice.

We hope you will join us in worship with God and his son, Jesus Christ.
