Venice United Methodist church celebrates worship on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. Services are between 60 and 75 minutes long. Following the service, everyone is invited to share a bit of refreshment during our “hospitality” time in the parlor, before they carry on with their day.
The worship contains the familiar and some unfamiliar: elements of music, prayer, Scripture reading, prophetic witness, youth interpretation of Scripture, and special offerings of the gifts and talents of people from the community at large.
On the first Sunday of each month the congregation celebrates communion. To this communion table, everyone is invited into the full life of the church, without exception.
