I’m New

Welcome to Penn Yan United Methodist Church! We are so excited that you are considering a visit, and would love to welcome you here. We all love to call this place our home, and we think you will too!

Here at Penn Yan UMC we have three completely different worship styles. Check them out to see which one fits your family best!

5:00PM Saturday Night Service: This is our contemporary service with the band Outcross. Here they play up-beat rock and new contemporary music, some they even write themselves.

9:00AM Sunday Break: This is considered a blended worship. The Sunday Break band plays a mix of contemporary new songs and traditional hymns. Our worship team and pastor leads the service with drama and multimedia to support a theme-driven worship.

11:00AM Traditional: Do time honored traditions stir your soul? Our Traditional Service for today’s world features our Strauss pipe organ, choir and other specialty music groups and soloists.

Where Do I Park?

Parking is available in the lot behind the church (entrance on Chapel Street). Parking is also available on Main Street right in front of the church building.

What Should I Look For When I Come In?

When you come in the parking lot entrance, head downstairs to the Fellowship Hall for Saturday Evening (5:00pm) and Sunday Break (9:00am). For the Traditional Worship (11:00am) please proceed upstairs to the Sanctuary. Various church staff and lay leadership will be on hand to meet and greet you.

We understand that families like to stay together when first visiting a church. We would like you to know that we have childcare for birth-preschool during the Sunday Break Service (9:00am) and Traditional Worship (11:00am). We also offer Sunday School classes for students in preschool – 12th grade, and classes and small groups for adults at 10:00am. All of our children’s volunteers have been screened, comply with our Safe Sanctuary Policy and have passed comprehensive background checks.

What Do People Wear When They Come to Church?

Clothes! Simply put, come as you are! We surely do. Some people dress casual and some dress up. God looks at the heart and not your clothes.
