This week’s Bulletin

Sermon Recordings

 

Normally, each Sunday, St. Paul’s Waccamaw Methodist Church offers two worship services

Please join us for our service

A Traditional Worship Service in the Sanctuary begins at 8:45 a.m.  including Methodist liturgy and hymns with a full Chancel Choir.  This service is our more formal worship time.

Worship, in the Christian faith, is the act of attributing reverent honor and homage to God. In the New Testament, various words are used to refer to the term worship. One is “proskuneo” which means to bow down to God. Worship is bowing down the Lord of the universe and celebrating God’s gift of grace.

You will find a deep reverence here at Saint Paul’s Waccamaw Methodist Church. The music is abundant and deeply theological. It will encompass compositions from the great hymn writers the centuries like Carl Gustav (How Great Thou Art), John Newton (Amazing Grace), many others, and choices from thousands of those beautiful hymns written by Charles Wesley along with some more recent songs periodically. This is a church of music, and the choir and choir director celebrate God’s grace and seek to inspire the soul.

The Bible tells us that Jesus was and is the “Word of God.” So, in the Christian Church, the spoken word is central to the worship experience. The sermons are Biblically based and follow the common lectionary readings. Modern illustrations are used to expand the text. Throughout most of Christianity’s history, corporate Christian worship has been liturgical (three-year cycle of Scripture readings), characterized by prayers and hymns, with texts rooted in, or closely related to, the Scripture, particularly the Psalter.

Come and celebrate the grace of God in with prayer, the spoken proclamation of grace and forgiveness, and song. Enter to give yourself to God. Depart to give yourself to the world for God.

11:00 A.M. Modern Service

Enter the relaxed atmosphere of Berly Hall for the 11:00 am service for a joyful message with uplifting music and fellowship.

The more casual atmosphere includes dressing as if you live in or are visiting the beach area plus coffee and donuts holes,

available seating around tables or in rows, and relaxed interaction.

On the first Sunday of each month, Holy Communion (Eucharist) is celebrated. The table at Saint Paul’s is viewed as Christ’s table. Both Protestant and Catholic and those of other denominations are invited. Sometimes intinction is used, and we process forward to receive the bread and wine. You may kneel at the altar following being served. On other occasions, we kneel at the altar; the heavenly host is passed along the alar rail by assistants. We are sure you will find both a spiritual event.

 

Sunday School Classes for adults include the Friendship

class and the Joy class meet each Sunday morning at 9 am

Friendship Sunday School

The Friendship Class is meeting now in the Youth Building, (Close to the Administration Building.)

 “The Friendship Class will be studying Luke: Jesus and the Outsiders, Outcasts, and Outlaws. We will use the book by Adam Hamilton, starting on February 19th. Through Luke‘s stories we find Jesus’s care and compassion for all as he welcomes sinners and outcasts.  See Joe Mayhew (843 235 9303) to sign up. Books cost $12.”

We welcome anyone who would like to attend to come at 10:am a.m. each Sunday

JOY Sunday School Class 

New Bible Study

Join the JOY class for an exciting study of Acts which covers the early church in the first 30 years after Jesus’ resurrection and ascension.

  • Discover the indisputable fact about Jesus’ resurrection and presence of the Holy Spirit.
  • Read about supernatural intervention, miracles, powerful preaching, breathtaking escapes, harrowing journeys, thrilling rescues, mystery and adventure.
  • Find encouragement in the lives of the men and women who changed the world.

Acts describes the spread of Christianity among the Jews, and to the Gentiles in the rest of the world. There is enormous application and importance for us today. We are God’s people; chosen to be part of His plan to reach the local community and the world. This study will help us be faithful witnesses in the way we live and provide encouragement in times of struggles.

We’d love to have you join us on the 7th.
