From God’s House to Yours
Hello, In-Person Worship Returns in July!

We are so glad we can update and connect with you virtually via Email, Facebook, YouTube. Starting in July, we will gather inside the sanctuary for Sunday ONE Worship. The front/West red doors on 5th Street will be where all Seward United Methodist Church family and friends will enter and exit. The back/East doors are exclusively for Bright Beginnings Child Development Center and Food Net.

Wednesday FOCUS Worship will also gather inside the sanctuary starting July 8th although we may decide to meet outside if the weather is favorable. Any last minute changes will be set out via One-Call phone call and/or email/text.

Sunday July 5th, the front doors will open at 10:10am to facilitate getting everyone settled for worship at 10:30am. Initially, we will be limited to approximately seventy people in the sanctuary. We will add back in the 8:15am worship service as we have need to expand but until then, we will provide overflow seating in the Fellowship Hall.

Pastor Jo Ellen and the church staff have prepared additional instructions describing what to expect as in-person worship returns to Seward United Methodist Church. The Great Plains Conference has also provided a check-list document concerning the recommendations for returning to in-person worship services.

Church Building Re-Opens to the Public in July

The Seward United Methodist Church building will have a soft re-opening starting in July. The front doors will be unlocked only on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00am – 3:00pm when you can access the office area. Please call ahead to be sure the building is open. The black mailbox has a locked area where you can leave notes/checks/etc. if you find the building inaccessible.
