Worship at DPUMC

Deer Park United Methodist Church is one church that worships God in two distinct styles each Sunday. We invite you to come Rejoice in Christ's grace through music, scripture, and uplifting preaching.

Modern Worship 8:30 AM

8:30 Worship is led by the Praise Team, featuring upbeat, praise and worship music. Worshipers praise God by singing, praying, and being present as a witness to others in worship. Each service includes a children’s message, prayer time, and a message offered our pastor.

Many families with children attend this time of worship. Come as you are, grab a donut and a cup of coffee, and join us in worship this Sunday!

Sunday School for all ages follows.

Traditional Worship 11:00 AM

11:00 am Worship is led by our pastor and the Sanctuary Choir. This service includes a blend of traditional hymns songs. Barry Talley leads the choir and congregational singing, and music is provided by a piano and an organ. Worshipers praise God by singing, praying, and being present as a witness to others in worship. Each service includes a children’s message, prayer time, and a message offered our pastor.

Many people who enjoy the more formal traditions of Christian worship attend this time of worship. Come prepared to sing favorite hymns and to hear God speak through word and music!

Wednesday Worship at the Waterford

Deer Park United Methodist Church facilitates a mid-week prayer and worship opportunity every Wednesday evening at 6 pm at the Waterford Retirement Community located at 201 McDermott Street, Deer Park, TX 77536. We enjoy singing together, prayer, and a devotion. The sacrament of Holy Communion is served by one of our pastors once a month. This service is open to all.

Music Ministries

Music is an important part of how we worship God and how we express ourselves. The music ministry at Deer Park UMC has a place for all styles of musicians – classic, contemporary, singers, and instrumentalists. Contact Barry Talley for more information.

Choir

The Sanctuary Choir is under the direction of Barry Talley and rehearses Wednesdays at 7 pm in room 112. The choir leads the traditional worship service at 10:50 am each Sunday through a wide selection of hymns and praise songs.

You do not have to be here every Wednesday or even every Sunday to be a member. The choir is comprised of some very talented and experienced section leaders and filled out with a large number of “shower singers.” You do not have to read music, audition, or sing a solo (unless you ask for one) to be a member. All you have to do is show up.

Praise Team

The Praise Team leads worship in the 8:30 am service each Sunday. The team plays a variety of modern Christian music and incorporates different instruments, sounds, and voices into their music.

Baptism & Communion

Baptism

Holy Baptism is a covenant between an individual and God. It is God’s word to us, proclaiming our adoption by grace, and our word to God, promising our response of faith and love. The Sacrament of Baptism also includes promises for the church and individual or family to be bonded together.

Persons of all ages can be baptized – infants, children, youth, and adults. God’s grace is available to all and at work in all.

The United Methodist Church recognizes baptisms from other faith traditions and churches, and therefore does not “re-baptize.” We do, however, allow you to remember you baptism at a special baptism worship service.

Please contact one of our pastors to discuss baptism.

Holy Communion

Holy Communion is a sacrament in the United Methodist Church. This sacrament is often called by other names, including the Lord’s Supper, the Last Supper, and Eucharist.

In Holy Communion, we remember and proclaim God’s saving work through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are reminded again of the gifts of God’s grace and forgiveness given to each of us. In Communion, we celebrate what God is doing among us and in us.

In the United Methodist Church, Holy Communion is open to all persons. You do not have to be a member to participate. Communion is offered during worship once a month, typically on the first weekend of the month.

Our pastors are willing to serve Holy Communion at other times and place in the life of the community. Please call on them to serve Holy Communion to persons unable to travel to church.

Funerals

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff—they comfort me. --Ps 23

The ministry of care serves our faith community in a number of ways, not the least of which is care before, during, and after the loss of a loved one.

When a death is imminent, our pastors are honored to come and pray with you. When the death has occurred, our pastors and staff would also be honored to provide the service for your loved one at the church, the funeral home, or the graveside depending on the family’s wishes.

Christ is our hope for eternal life, and we offer this hope to the surviving family and friends.
