At Plantation, we believe that worship is a creative expression of Jesus' love for us and our love for him. It's an opportunity for the community to put the rest of the world aside for a moment and to recharge in the presence of the God who loves us.
At each service, our team of staff and volunteers gather to create a worship experience truly worth participating in. Our musicians pull music from a wide library of styles and artists. We utilize the many talents of our creative team to develop an engaging atmosphere. This sets the stage for a teaching moment that inspires and challenges.
We hope that through worship you will have a deeper understanding of God, and who God created you to be!
Worship Services @ Plantation UMC
Feel free to come as you are! Pastors wear more casual attire instead of traditional robes. Music is led by the Heaven's Sake Band and Praise Worship Leader Steve Brasgalla. The song lyrics are projected on a large screen so everyone can participate. This service regularly uses video and other media. Click here for Children's Ministry during this service.

Join us as we sing the traditional hymns of the church, led by our Chancel Choir and other musical groups like the Bell Choir, and Resonate! & Resonate Jr. (children's choirs). Pastors wear traditional robes, and we pray the Lord's Prayer each week. Click here for Children's Ministry during this service. For more information on the 11:00 Traditional Service, click here.
This unique worship is offered the 3rd Sunday of each month at 7:00pm in the Sanctuary. It is led by the people of Plantation UMC. Pastors may attend, but they're just worshipping along with everyone else as together we sing beautiful hymns, hear a guest musical artist, and enjoy a message brought to us by a member of the Plantation UMC family or special guest. It is a wonderful, folksy experience of God's love in our midst! For more information on the Evensong Service, click here.
Communion is a ritual of the church, where we remember how on the night he was about to be betrayed, Jesus shared a meal with his closest friends. At that meal, he used bread and wine to describe the gift he was about to give to the world:
As they were eating, Jesus took some bread and blessed it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, “Take this and eat it, for this is my body.” And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. He gave it to them and said, “Each of you drink from it, for this is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many. Mark my words — I will not drink wine again until the day I drink it new with you in my Father’s Kingdom.” Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives.
— Matthew 26:26-30 (New Living Translation)
Communion is celebrated each Sunday in our 8am Traditional Service, and on the first weekend of every month in all services. Communion at Plantation, and at all United Methodist churches, is open to all who seek to follow Jesus, regardless of age or religious background. A gluten-free bread alternative is available — just ask as you are being served! Click here to learn more about Communion within the United Methodist Church.
