Some Frequently Asked Questions


When are your worship services?

Worship services are held on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. We also have study groups which meet before worship at 9:00 a.m. and our choir rehearsal begins at 10:00 a.m. Additionally, a time of fellowship with refreshments is held after worship each week.



Do you have other worship services?

Yes. We offer an annual outdoor Easter Sunrise Service. Additionally, special worship services are also held during Holy Week as well as added services for Christmas eve.



What programs do you have for children and youth?

We provide nursery care for infants through preschoolers each sunday morning from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Separate classes for elementary aged children (K-6th grade) and youth (7th-12th grade) are held each Sunday morning from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m.

Our youth ministry involves a blend of mission and service projects as well as fellowship and fun!

Can I have my child baptized there?

Baptism is a Holy Sacrament of the Christian church and is practiced within the Methodist tradition as a part of a weekly Sunday worship service. It is a rite of Christian initiation requiring preparation and commitment on the part of the parents and/or sponsors, including meeting with the pastor and demonstrable practices of the Christian faith. For more information please contact the pastor at 302-652-8411 or at pastor.mtlebanonumc@verizon.net



What is the church policy on weddings?

Our church is available for the celebration of Christian wedding ceremonies. We hold Christian marriage as a service of public worship and seek to celebrate this spiritual covenant with dignity yet allowing for individual expression. Christian marriage is different from civil marriage ceremonies that establish secular contracts. Christian marriage is the declaration, establishment and blessing of a relationship between each individual, the couple and God.

Our church sanctuary provides a beautiful and intimate setting for weddings and can accommodate up to 150 people. Interested couples must first meet with the pastor for an initial consultation before a date can be reserved. A minimum of three pre-marital counseling sessions are required. Reservations should be set at least six months prior to the wedding date. For additional information and pricing, please view the church rentals section found under the Our Church menu to the left.



Is the church hall available for rental or use?

YES! We are happy to make the church facility available for short-term or long-term rental use. Individual rooms (for 5-15 people) are available for smaller groups and activities. The church hall is available for gatherings, meetings, classes, receptions, and parties (capacity 80 persons). The church sanctuary is available for recitals, weddings, wedding vow renewals, funerals, and memorial services (capacity 125 persons).

For fees and other inquiries, please contact Phoebe Chan at our church office, 302-652-8411 or via email at office.mtlebanonumc@verizon.net.
