Want to plan a visit to worship with us at Batavia UMC? We would love for you to join us! We want to make sure you are aware of a few things.
9am – Live Online Worship at our YouTube channel
The information below was designed to help you prepare for your visit with us in-person. Since we are currently minimizing our in-person gatherings during the COVID pandemic, some of this information may not be currently relevant. Still, we hope it will give you a sense of what our life and gatherings are like at Batavia UMC!
1. Our Worship Times
Our normal worship times are
Sunday mornings at 9am and 10:30am. 9am has a more traditional feel, with organ and classic hymn singing, while 10:30am music is led by a band with guitar, drums, and contemporary instruments. Occasionally we change up this schedule for special Sundays, but these will be noted in our online calendar 9am on YouTube during the COVID pandemic.
We are a downtown church in the city of Batavia, and parking can be confusing if you’ve never visited before. We do not want that to get in the way of your visit! Rest assured, there are plenty of spots accessible near our building. GPS devices will lead you to our front door, where parking is not abundant. But across the street you will find plenty of public city parking. There is also parking in the back of our building, accessible off of Water Street. See the image below for a visual guide.
3. Dress code
There is none! Come as you’re comfortable, whether that means jeans and a t-shirt, or a tuxedo or ballgown (or somewhere in between).
You do not need to let us know you’re coming – feel free to just stop on by! But if you would feel most comfortable giving the pastors a heads-up, you can send us an email, and we’ll be sure to look out for you and say hello.
