Our Mission Statement
“Encouraging people on their journey to discover extraordinary life in Christ.”
North Raleigh United Methodist Church is a community of Christians at different stages in our spiritual journeys. We are bound by a common need to worship, praise, and serve our Lord. We are united in praise and service to Jesus Christ. We are people of all ages and stages from newborns to senior citizens. We are people involved in ministry, in teaching, and in learning.
At NRUMC, we have seven worship services each Sunday morning.
Traditional services are held on Sundays at 8:30, 10:00, and 11:15 in the sanctuary. Traditional worship includes singing of hymns and use of congregational prayers and traditional creeds of the church.
Contemporary Services are held at 8:30 and 9:45. ELEVATE begins at 8:30 in the Youth Center and Souljourn begins at 9:45 in the Fellowship Hall. Our contemporary worship experience involves all of our senses in praise and adoration of God. Led by our clergy and worship music leaders, we are refreshed and strengthened for our journeys of faith and life in Jesus Christ.
SHINE is our worship service for children kindergarten through 5th grade. We meet at 11:15 in the fellowship hall for an exciting and interactive worship experience, games, a Bible story video, and so much more!
Connect is a worship service specifically designed for young people. We meet in our youth center at 11:15. Come worship with us as we join in fellowship, fun, community, service, and more!
We offer special services on Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and Easter sunrise.
Sunday School and Nursery Care
Christian education has always been important at North Raleigh United Methodist. We have classes for children (from age 2 to 5th grade) and youth (6th grade through high school), led by an enthusiastic and dedicated group of teachers. Because we never stop learning, we have a wide range of Adult Sunday School classes as well.
What time is Sunday School? 9:45 a.m. and 11:15 a.m.
We offer two morning sessions of Sunday School each week at 9:45 and 11:15. At 9:45, we offer classes for children, youth, and adults. At 11:15 we have classes for adults.
Since people learn in different ways, class formats range from lectures to open discussion. Because people want to learn about different things, class topics range from Bible study to life applications to social principles. No matter how much you know, there is always more to learn!
Nursery Care: A nursery is provided in the Youth Center for infants and children through age three for the entire morning. Room Y2 is a dedicated toddler room and Room Y3 is a dedicated nursery. For assistance, please see an usher; and parents, please be sure to sign your children in at the nursery. Our pager system will allow parents to be contacted by the nursery workers during worship, if needed.
