Visitor Information

We understand that the first time at a new church can be quite intimidating. We have laid out a few questions you may have in order to alleviate some of that stress.

What time is the service?

We currently have a traditional service at 9am and a contemporary worship service at 11am on Sunday mornings. 

What should I wear?

Though many in our church wear a classic suit and tie in our traditional service, you’ll also find khakis and jeans in your pew. Our contemporary worship service is a more casual attire. 

What is there for my children during the service? 

Aldersgate has a full nursery for your little ones, as well as children’s church during the sermon.

How can I get plugged in?

Aldersgate has many missions and studies throughout the week. Check out our Ministries page and our Calendar. You can also head over to any of our social media accounts for additional information and updates. 

We are located at 211 Alice Dr. Sumter, SC 29150.

A message from our senior pastor:

On behalf of myself and the rest of our church family, I greet you with the grace and peace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as I welcome you to the Aldersgate UMC website. To be sure I am delighted you have chosen to spend a few moments checking out who we are and the various ministries and other activities we support and give witness to.

As you familiarize yourself with Aldersgate, I hope and pray that you discover that we are a community of faith, made up of people from various backgrounds, committed to loving Jesus and one another. What that means is: regardless of who you are and where you are in your spiritual journey, we welcome you to join us, as we strive to glorify God and build up the body of Christ through all that we do.  Therefore, we invite you to come to our worship service and/or one of our other weekly activities to experience firsthand who we are and what we’re about at AUMC. Hope to see you Sunday!

In His name and for His glory,

Pastor David W. Day
