We offer a variety of settings for worship. On Sundays, we
have worship service at 8:30 and 11:00 AM (Winter Hours)
and Summer hours (June thru August) are 8:30 and 10:00 a.m.
Our sanctuary is handicap accessible from Warren Street and we have handicap accessible restrooms on the sanctuary level. We also offer hearing devices, large-print bulletins, large-print hymnals and activity sheets for children attending worship. Child Care is also provided for Sunday Services.
We also have a Meditation Chapel. This Meditation Chapel is handicap accessible and is open for prayer and meditation daily from 8:30 am to 8:30 pm. Entrance is through the Sanctuary or the side entrances.
We also have an excellent music program for children, youth and adults including both vocal and bell groups. Our organist, Al Purdy adds greatly to our worship both at the Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ and the piano. Susan Pirone and John Collison bring their musical expertise to our Chancel Choir and Bell Choir.
Music is an integral part of the worship experience at the Tunkhannock United Methodist Church. Our vision for the music program of this church is to provide the opportunity for meaningful and enriching musical expressions of worship for people of all ages.
Our choirs include the following:
