Frequently Asked Questions

When are your Sunday services?

We offer three worship services each Sunday:

8:20 - Old Chapel Worship in the original chapel (located across the street diagonally from the main building) ON HOLD
9:40 - Classic Worship in the Main Sanctuary. Currently the only active service due to COVID19.
10:00 - Faith Infusion in the Worship Center. ON HOLD

What is each service like?

Each of our three Sunday services have their own distinct style.

8:20 - Old Chapel Worship - This intimate service takes place in the original 19th century chapel features a weekly hymn sing, piano accompaniment, and other time-honored worship elements that have been practiced by Christians for over a century.

9:40 - Classic Worship - Experience the majesty of God's presence with a beautiful presentation of classic worship.  This service features traditional hymns accompanied by our powerful 110 pipe organ, choral anthems, and a relevant message.  

10:00 - Faith Infusion - An energizing service with a contemporary, yet timeless, style.  Located in the Worship Center, this service uses a dynamic blend of Gospel-centered preaching, music, videos, drama and other art forms to create a worship experience that draws the congregation into a dynamic encounter with the Living God.

Do you have child care?

Children's programming is currently offered online due to COVID19 restrictions. Please visit our children's page for details. Yes!  Our 9:40 and 10:00 worship hours feature a nursery for ages 3 months to 2 years.  Our nursery workers are church members who have a love of children and have also completed background checks to make sure you feel completely secure leaving your precious one in their care.

We also have age appropriate children's classes for ages 2 - 6th grade during these hours.  Please see our Kids page for details.

If you are interested, simply have your children come into the service with you to experience some of the early music.  Children will then be released to go to their class with our leaders after a short time.  If this is your first time, please feel free to accompany them so you can see where they are going and register them at our check-in center.  Children will only be released to a parent with an accompanying check-in sticker after each service.

What should I wear?

Wear whatever makes you the most comfortable!  If you are trying to blend in, you will find primarily business casual dress at our 8:20 and 9:40 services and many people even more casual at 10:00.

Are you going to collect money?

Armstrong Chapel and its ministries are supported by the generous contributions of our members and regular attenders.  We allow these people the opportunity to make these contributions in each service.  If you are just visiting or checking Armstrong out, please allow the offering plates to just pass you by during this time.  No judgement.

Anything else I should know about Sunday mornings?

Yes!  We offer free coffee in the atrium as you enter the main building.  Feel free to bring a cup in with you!  

We also offer a wide selection of breakfast and brunch snacks  each week.  Please feel free to enjoy and mingle with everyone else.

How Do I Schedule a Wedding?

The services of the church staff and the use of the facilities are offered to make your wedding a joyous and spiritually meaningful event for you, your families and your guests. Ceremonies may be held in the Old Chapel or the main Sanctuary as the church calendar permits.  Non-members are welcome to schedule weddings no more than nine months from the requested date.  Contact Wendy Ransom, the wedding coordinator through the church office Monday through Wednesday (561-4220 x310).

How do I schedule a baptism?

Baptisms are scheduled in consultation with pastors for member families and others who are participating at Armstrong Chapel United Methodist Church.  Contact the church office if you are interested in baptism and we will direct you to one of our pastors for further information.

How do I become a member?

Membership classes at Armstrong are offered periodically and  involve 6 class sessions offered on Sunday mornings . The New Member class will be using A Disciple’s Path by James A. Harnish to guide one’s understanding of being a member of the United Methodist Church and Armstrong Chapel. Over the course of six weeks, class participants will strengthen their appreciation for Wesleyan concepts of love and grace, the membership vows to uphold the church through prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness while also learning about spiritual practices and how to use their unique spiritual gifts. At the end of the class, participants will have an opportunity to join the church. 

For more information or to join the class, please contact Joy Helton in the church office. (561-4220 x309)
