Inviting... Growing... Serving

Welcome to Rockville United Methodist Church!                                           Your Local Worship Center

Children’s Service        5:00 PM

This interactive service will include carols, the Christmas story retold with the help of the children, and a children’s sermon. Come and enjoy this time of worship with your children and grandchildren as we remember the birth of Jesus. Then be off for supper and an early bedtime to get ready for the joys of Christmas morning!

Candlelight Service      9:00 PM

This service set in late evening will include traditional carols, Scripture, Holy Communion and candles. This will be a perfect way to end an evening with family and friends as we remember the joy of the angels, the surprise of the shepherds and the wonder of Mary and Joseph on this night of our Savior’s birth.
