contemporary worship


The Connection Service at Clarkesville First UMC meets at 9:00 am in our Connection building. The Connection Service is a Contemporary Worship Service. We enjoy experiencing the presence of God through songs, prayer, Bible teaching, offering, and reflection. It is a casual service with coffee and a light breakfast (beginning at 8:40 am), where we can fellowship before worshiping together. 

The Connection Contemporary Service is located in the Connection Building. This is our last building that is closest to Walgreens. You can enter through the side door by the parking lot. 

We also know that visiting a church for the first time it can be intimating to not know where you are going. Take a moment to check out our church maps, below you can follow each of the links to see where everything takes place!
