Traditional Worship

The Eleven O'clock Sunday Worship Service at Ginter Park United Methodist Church is a traditional service, incorporating the beauty and majesty of ancient traditions. This service is welcoming and embraces the caring ministry exemplified in the Wesley tradition. It is held in our Sanctuary designed to provide an ideal worship setting. Built in 1949 the sanctuary is richly ornamented with stain glass and mosaics that reflect the symbols and stories of our Christian faith.

Contemporary Worship

Ginter Park UMC puts its own mark on the contemporary worship with the Side Door Service at 9:30 a.m. Held in the newly renovated Social Hall, Side Door parishioners get their praise on with music from the Side Door Band, vignettes from lay speakers, Children’s Time and messages from our pastor, The Rev. Dr. Dennis Lipke. The Side Door Service shapes itself around prayer, praise and scripture. Each week acknowledges the Holy Spirit's movement in our lives and gives us an opportunity to sing, pray and simply be together with God. It's a relaxed service--No suits, dresses and “Sunday best” required. Come as you are, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and prepare for a dynamic praise service that is sure to lift your spirits, and bring you closer to God!
