Worship

 

Music

At Poteau United Methodist Church our worship is a combination of the Ancient and the New.  In a typical worship service you will hear an organ or piano accompany an old favorite hymn and a guitar lead an inspiring new song.  You will see familiar church symbols, words for all music and scripture on our screens, and videos that help proclaim the incredible grace of God.  We also have a choral choir and bell choir.

 

 

Preaching

Our pastor,Rev. Jim Perkin, preaches sermons that are Biblically based and relevant to our lives. His passion is to make theology (the study of God) practical and understandable.  Using Holy Scripture illuminated by contemporary illustrations, videos, and personal stories, Pastor Jim challenges us to respond to God's grace in our lives by living as people who are forgiven. 

 

 

 

Sacraments

In the United Methodist Church we believe in and practice two sacraments:  Baptism and Holy Communion.  

Baptism is a very special way that God imparts grace to us.  We baptize all persons regardless of age because it is the act of God through the grace of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit.  If you want to learn more about United Methodism and baptism click here and download  By Water and Spirit:  A United Methodist Understanding of Baptism  Or just give our pastor a call or email.



Holy Communion is served in our worship service on the first Sunday of every month.  In the United Methodist Church we practice an Open Table which simply means that Holy Communion is available to all persons regardless of whether or not you attend or are a member of our church.  If you believe in Jesus Christ as your savior and repent of your sin you are invited to Christ's table with us.
