Service Styles

We have services in two styles: Traditional and Modern. Our services at 8 and 11 use the Traditional style, which features hymns, responses, and music from our organ and periodically our orchestra and handbells. Our service at 9:30 uses the Modern style, which features contemporary Christian music performed by our worship band. This service features a casual atmosphere that usually appeals to families. No matter which service you attend, we're happy you decided to come worship with us!

Parking

Parking is available in three lots: 1. the main lot in front of the church, which is typically reserved for first-time guests, seniors, and single parents with infants; 2. the 19th Street lot at the corner of 19th Street and Pacific Avenue, which is our biggest lot; 3. the 18th Street lot behind the Domino's Pizza just up 18th Street. We have a team of parking attendants that are happy to help you find parking - just look for the signs and their bright vests and flags! We ask first-time guests to turn their flashers on so we can guide you to the most convenient parking spot for you. Overflow parking is available in the Virginia Beach city municipal lots on 19th Street across Pacific Avenue from the church. Just tell any attendant there you're going to church!

Sunday School

We have several Sunday School classes for adults, many of which meet at 9:30 AM. Adults of all ages attend these classes, which often feature discussion based on bible studies, selected curriculum, and sermons. Contact Pam Peskoe if you're interested in joining one!

Children

From newborns to elementary schoolers, we've got a special experience just for your kids on Sunday! Kids ages infant to preschool can be checked in to the nursery on the first floor, where they'll be cared for by our trained staff. Kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to join our children's Sunday School experience on the third floor (we recommend coming at the 9:30 AM service time). Just be sure to check in on the first floor by the nursery first! Kids will get lots of social interaction along with learning more about God's love for them in a way that's tailored just for them! You can learn more about our children's Sunday experiences on the "Children" page under "Ministries."

Youth

Youth (middle- and high-schoolers) have their own Bible study group that meets in the youth space on the second floor at 9:30 AM. Students start together for a large group message, then breakout into separate groups for discussion. Feel free to get in touch with Pam Bentley for more information!

Gathering

In between services, you're invited to get to know other members of our church family over a cup of coffee! We've set up designated tables at the end of the main hallway in the South Wing, as well as in the entrance to our administrative suite where you can grab a cup of java, chat with some new friends, and learn more about life at Virginia Beach United Methodist!
