In one of Green Meadow's desert experiences, we picked up scrolls.

Green Meadow United Methodist Church, Alcoa, Tennessee

How we worship ...

Music includes traditional hymns, as well as contemporary praise. We use digital imagery as a part of liturgy.

We celebrate the traditional seasons of the Christian year: Advent, Lent, Easter and Pentecost.

It is experiential and participatory. in great ways and in small ways. We once turned the altar area into a desert -- from Lent and into Easter!

Holy Communion

Holy Communion is regularly celebrated the first and third Sundays each month, in addition to special observances.

The Celebration of Holy Communion

In the United Methodist tratition, we observe an "open table," which means that the Lord’s Table is open to all and all are welcome -- whether you are affiliated with a church or not, young or old.

We most often celebrate by intinction, meaning you are served a piece of bread from the loaf and you then dip it into the cup. You may then pray at the altar rail or return to your seat.
