We gather for worship at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. every Sunday, with Bible studies and Sunday School for all ages in between services at 9:45 a.m. In each worship service that lasts about an hour, you can expect uplifting music featuring a blend of traditional and modern hymns of the church, meaningful prayer, inspiring videos and visual images, words of scripture, and relevant messages from Pastor Steve Blacksher. These thoughtful, scripture-driven and practical messages will challenge us to live out our faith with action, purpose and passion in the name of the risen Jesus Christ.
Feel free to come as you are. You’ll find people dressed in everything from casual to formal. Be sure to stop by the Coffee House as you come in to pick up a cup of morning brew and take with you into the Worship Center. If you have any questions stop by the Information Desk, or ask one of our Connection Team members. We want to help you feel right at home!
Children are always welcome to be with their families in Sunday morning worship. In addition, nursery care is available (birth to age 3). Ignite Kids For Christ (an “age-appropriate” children’s worship time) is also available for older children (age 4 to grade 3) at each worship service. For your convenience, the nursery and Ignite Kids For Christ rooms are located just down the hall from the entrance to the Worship Center. A child comfort room, from where the service can be seen and heard, is also available for those with younger children who might need to step out of the service for a few moments.

Ozark UMC’s mission is: “Leading people to actively follow Jesus Christ.”
Ozark UMC’s vision is: “Becoming more deeply connected with God and our community, so that we can better reach those not currently connected to Christ and the church.”
Our Core Values:
Ozark UMC’s core values are: preaching and teaching Scripture, worship, fellowship, prayer, encouragement, community, and people not connected with Christ.
1) So that more children will have a stronger foundation in following Jesus Christ, we will increase our children’s ministry adult support to 15 volunteers every Sunday morning in 2018.
2) So that youth and adults become more deeply connected with Christ and our church, we will implement a new small group initiative by September 30, 2018 that will involve at least 100 people by the end of the year.
3) So that people in our community will become more deeply connected with Christ and our church, at least 30 people new to our congregation since October 1, 2017 will become active in an Ozark UMC youth or adult small group in 2018.
4) So that the mission and vision of Ozark UMC can be more fully realized, in 2018 we will invest $350,000, or more, in ministry through our congregation’s financial generosity.
