Traditional Service

When we are engaged in the worship of God, our majestic sanctuary space lends itself most authentically to a traditional expression of worship. Hymns, paraments (altar fabrics), the liturgical cycle (the historic Christian "seasons" of Advent-Christmas-Epiphany-Lent-HolyWeek-Easter-Pentecost-"Kingdomtide"), participatory liturgy, robes, the primacy of prayer, thoughtful sermons, spiritual depth, connection to history: these are the elements of Christian worship that "ring true" in our morning worship. We aren't trying to recapture 1950s Americana (recognizing that may well be what some "traditional" worship inadvertently seeks to do), but rather we anchor our communal relationship with God on the enduring witness and life of the Church of Jesus Christ. We are convinced that the more chaotic life becomes, the more the Church's worship life may well need to offer a tangible expression of stability. Of trust. Of steadfastness, of endurance.

Community of Hope

A Community focused on, and especially welcoming towards (but not limited to), those who are experiencing homelessness and/or poverty.

We meet outside, in the Courtyard of First Church, Sundays at 1:00pm. Everyone who comes in gets lunch, and people can sit down with their lunch at a table, eat, and enjoy fellowship while participating in worship. If people just want to grab a lunch and go, they are welcome to do that... we don't believe the Gospel or worship should be a "string attached" to a meal given to someone who is hungry. The worship itself is about 30 minutes of contemporary music (usually), scripture, sermon, and prayer. After the service, we keep the yard open until 2pm for fellowship. 

Community of Hope is an official new church plant of the United Methodist Church. It has been in existence for 8 years, but has spent the last 3 1/2 years under the hospitable umbrella of Albuquerque's First United Methodist Church. First's current pastor, Jon Moore, also became the sole pastor of Community of Hope in the Summer of 2020.

We really encourage people who are fascinated by Jesus, but frustrated by the institutional church, to come visit us at Community of Hope!

Also, if you're interested in community service, working in the kitchen and helping us with lunch for Community of Hope is a great way to serve!
