Worship at Ardmore
Ardmore is dynamic and creative in our opportunities for worship. We provide worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00 and 11:15. Our traditional service is at 10:00 am in our Sanctuary and you can expect hymns, common prayers, scripture, choral music, reading and sharing of a message within the framework of the liturgy of the church. Our Contemporary service is in our Chapel at 11:15 am where you can expect praise music, sharing, prayers for the community and a message that is timely for your life and faith.
In addition to our regular Sunday morning worship, on the 2nd Sunday of each month we provide a worship opportunity called Pour Theology. We meet at 5:00 pm at Footnotes (behind Foothills Brewery). This is a kid-friendly and come-as-you-are environment. Pour Theology is an extensional ministry of Ardmore UMC but theologically appropriate for anyone and everyone as we are about connecting people to God, each other, and the community.
We currently have two service options:
- "Traditional" at 10:00 am Sundays is currently available Livestream in person.
- "Contemporary" at 11:15 am on Sundays is currently available Livestream and in person.
10:00 am is more "traditional" in that we sing hymns with piano accompaniment and follow a pattern of worship that include responsive readings, creeds, and other traditional elements. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is generally offered on the first Sunday of each month.
11:15 am is designed to be more "modern" in tone and structure. More modern songs and contemporary praise music are sung with guitar, drum, and keyboard accompaniment. The service, which usually lasts about 45 minutes, is composed of prayers, songs, an offering time, and a sermon that is designed to speak to the heart a word of encouragement and challenge!

Pour Theology (pun intended) is just as simple and wonderful as it sounds: we enjoy great craft beer together (or not—if you're not a beer drinker, that's okay too), and we enjoy music that means so much to our hearts! We are an open, non-judgmental community where everyone (and we mean everyone) is welcome.
We especially welcome all those folks who might have experienced PTCD (Post-Traumatic Church Disorder), or who might have had a negative experience with churches in the past. We aren't here to preach to you, tell you how bad you are, or even try to get you to join our church. We just want to enjoy the experience of bringing people together for a good purpose.
All in person meetings are being held virtually until further notice.
We meet on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 4:30 pm at Footnote (behind Foothills Brewery). This is a kid-friendly and come-as-you-are environment. Pour Theology is an extensional ministry of Ardmore UMC, but theologically appropriate for anyone and everyone as we are about connecting to God, each other, and the community.
