Special Worship Services

Alpharetta Methodist has a number of special worship services each year.

Special Worship Services Coming Up in 2017

Patriotic Sunday

Sunday, July 2
8:15, 9:30 and 11 a.m.

On the Sunday immediately prior to the July 4 holiday, all of our worship services are rich with patriotic music and thanksgiving for the blessings God has bestowed on our nation. We also offer a salute to military veterans, and we dedicate the Oreos that will be sent to service members in war zones through Operation Oreo.

This year, we welcome Timothy Miller as guest soloist during our 8:15 and 11 a.m. traditional services and 9:30 Bridge service. Perhaps most widely recognized for his stirring renditions of “God Bless America” during the seventh inning stretch of Atlanta Braves home games, Mr. Miller is also an active performer with both national and international credits.

There will be no Sunday School on Patriotic Sunday.

Christmas Worship

December 23 and 24

We typically offer six Christmas worship services — one on Christmas Eve-Eve, and five on Christmas Eve. Watch for times and descriptions of each service to be published as we near this sacred day.
