What To Expect


Worship- Sunday 10 am | Messy Church- Friday, August 24th 5:30 pm

Worship Where All Are Welcome!


It's important to us that you feel welcome when visiting. We hope our atmosphere will help you feel relaxed and comfortable, a place where you are welcome to be yourself! You can expect to be welcomed with a handshake by greeters when you walk in and again during service when everyone is encouraged to greet those around them. We believe in a welcoming, casual, and relaxed atmosphere.

Worship Style

We strive to provide an engaging and inspirational "traditional" worship experience. By "traditional" we mean the majority of the year you will find a full choir and songs presented from the United Methodist Hymnal and a second songbook, The Faith We Sing. We believe that worship is an interactive group effort and is enriched with prayer, liturgy, and the sacrament of communion each week.

First Time Visitors and Seasonal Worshipers - Special Note

As a destination city, we are blessed with many one-time visitors and seasonal worshipers. In order to help our out of town guests feel more welcome, we provide an opportunity in service to introduce yourself. You are invited, but not obligated, to share your name with the congregation.

We recognize some people love the opportunity to introduce themselves and that some people prefer a more personal and reflective worship experience. Whichever your preference, you are welcome at the UMC of Palm Springs and your preferences will be respected.

Family Friendly

No matter your family dynamics, you're welcome at the United Methodist Church of Palm Springs and we're excited for you to consider being a part of our church family! Our intent is to serve the whole family.

  • Child Care - During our worship service, we have care available for infants and toddlers up to age 3, located in the Christian Education building.
  • Sunday School - During service, following the Joys and Concerns, the children and youth are invited to leave and participate in Sunday School in the Christian Education building.
  • Adult Education - Following Fellowship Time (approximately 11:30 am on Sundays) we offer Second Cup, an informal discussion group led by our Director of Christian Education where you can reflect and ask questions about the sermon and the service.


From the pulpit, you will hear sound preaching with the flare of a gifted storyteller. Pastor Jane Voigts brings the scriptures to life and opens up ancient wisdom for the modern world.

Fellowship Time

Following Sunday worship, everyone is invited to go down to the Fellowship Hall for snacks, coffee, and fellowship. Whether you are just looking for a bit of caffeine before the drive home or hoping to meet some new people, please know you are welcomed!
