In our sanctuary, there is a feeling of love and genuine concern for each other that binds us together in fellowship.  Our worship is simple and sincere.  Lay people and clergy participate in offering praise and glorifying the Lord! 

Cahaba Heights United Methodist is a happy church, an active church, a singing church.  Adult, youth and children's choirs, along with handbells and instrumentalists fill these curving arches with joyful noise.
There is a special time for children in our worship each Sunday, and "Children's Church" is offered during a portion of our regular worship hour. Scout Sunday, Youth Sunday, Children's Sunday, Student Recognition Sunday and Preschool Sunday are observed each year, focusing on the gifts and needs of our young people.
Our services are a satisfying blend of tradition and innovation. We recognize the importance of our Protestant and Wesleyan heritages. We regularly celebrate Baptism and Holy Communion.  Our members delight in keeping that Wesleyan heritage alive through hymns and studies in the Methodist tradition.  Our staff and worship committee are constantly vigilant that our services not become staid and stale.

The milestone events of the Christian year are especially precious worship opportunities for our congregation.  Advent brings new ideas and anticipation through our family worship time.  Christmas is celebrated with carols, candles, and Communion.  Lent is a period of reflection, including Ash Wednesday and special Holy Week services.  The culmination of all of our worship is in the glorious Easter mornings we experience here together.  Beginning with a Youth-led sunrise service in the prayer garden and continuing through Easter Morning Service, our church seems to bursts with our gathered family members and with the message which is truly our purpose for being - "HE IS RISEN!"  It is indeed this Easter message which we seek to bring to the world as a part of Christ's Church, binding us and carrying us through all our worship at Cahaba Heights United Methodist Church..

                             "Jesus, all glorious, create in us a Temple,
                              Called as living stones where you're enthroned.
                              As you rose from death in power, so rise within our worship,
                              Rise upon our praise, and let the hand that saw you raised,
                              Clothe us in your glory, draw us by your grace."

                                            from "We are Called" by Steve Fry

Nursery Even though a nursery is provided during worship for infants through three-year-olds, we encourage parents to bring their children into the worship service.  By experiencing full participation in corporate worship our children claim their membership as the people of God. The Lord's Table is also open to the very young. We share Holy Communion as a family in remembrance of Christ.

During each service there is a special time for sharing with the children, led by the Pastor or another staff member. The children gather at the altar rail for a story or a brief lesson. They often conclude their time together by leading the congregation in the Lord's Prayer.

An option available for children in grades Kindergarten through second is our Children's Church.  The children may leave the sanctuary following The Children's Time and continue the worship service in an alternate setting. The children enjoy activities and stories appropriate to their developmental stages.
