Sunday Worship

Currently, due to COVID-19, our congregational meets weekly for worship ONLINE. Service begins at 10am, music starts at 9:45am.

In the best of times, Wwe come together for worship at 10 each Sunday morning. Services are open to everyone and include hymn singing, choral and instrumental music, reading of scripture, prayer and teaching. Communion is offered on the first Sunday of each month. The congregation is open and welcoming.

Children are particularly welcome in the worship service, with activity pages for them to use in the sanctuary and a special “Brief Message” time devoted to their participation and learning. Childcare is provided for nursery-age children and a lesson related to the sermon is given during the sermon is offered for children through the fifth-grade.

Second Cup of Coffee

“Second Cup of Coffee” is the name of the sermon discussion group that meets abut 15 minutes after the worship service ends on Sunday mornings. Childcare is available during this time. Conversation is lively and honest, and questions are welcome. Copies of the sermon (and coffee!) are available to all who participate! This group meets in the Lombard Lounge.

Wednesday morning communion and meditation

Every Wednesday morning at 7:30 all are invited to a breakfast potluck followed by Communion and Meditation. This group meets in the Lombard Lounge at AUMC.

Saturday Hiking Group

Everyone is welcome to join the large group of dedicated hikers which forms the Second Saturday Hiking Group. Each month this group explores one of the many great hiking trails in San Luis Obispo County. Each trail is a unique joy to encounter; some trails are long and some are short, some are steep and some are an easy ramble.  What is always the same is a great blend of delightful hikers fascinated by God’s amazing world.

All the hikes start by meeting at the church at 9 a.m. on the Second Saturday of each month.  When gathered, they carpool to the trailhead.  The hikers usually stop for lunch at the end of the trail and then head back to the cars.
