One of the most challenging things to do is to visit a place that is unfamiliar. Blue Ridge United Methodist Church is designed to help you visit us with a minimum of concern. The front of the church is made of glass so you can see beyond the front door and see what people are doing. The people of the church are all committed to making you feel as welcome as they can.

Having a positive experience is very important to us.  We hope that this information will help relieve some of your concerns that come from visiting a new place. If there are any unanswered questions, please contact us.  We will be glad to help.

Parking:  Visitor Parking is available and identified by signage directly in front of our Sanctuary.  There is plenty of handicap parking next to the building on both the right and left side of the parking lot.

Dropping Off Areas:  There is a circular driveway at our front door to use and let people out before you park.  On the right side of our building is another drop off area that is covered to use in inclement weather.  Turn left to get to the front of the Sanctuary from this entrance.

Dress:  You will find people attending in everything from sport coats to blue jeans.  We hope you enjoy our casual atmosphere.

Fellowship Time:  10:00 – 10:20 am. – Come early for a cup of coffee and a light snack inside our Welcome area.  Meet some of our members, pick up brochures, and watch the monitor for a glimpse of what we are about.

Sign Our Guest Book:  When you arrive, you will be asked to sign our guest book and put on a name tag.  This this is done so that we can welcome you as you visit with us and let you know important your visit is to us.  A member of our welcoming Net Team will be there to assist you when you arrive.  You will not be singled out during our worship service.

Ushers:  There will be ushers to hand you a bulletin at the Sanctuary doors as you enter and to help you find a seat should you need it.  They can also help with any handicap needs you have.

Bible & Hymn Books:  There are two large screens in our Sanctuary and during our service these are used to present our lyrics to the songs we sing together, as well as to follow along as the morning scriptures are presented.

Communion:  We offer communion on the first Sunday of each month.  We believe communion should be available to all who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour; therefore, our communion is available for all Christians to experience.
