Saturday at First service is currently on hiatus. It will resume June 6, 2015 with the Up With Puppets leading worship.

The Saturday At First service has a rich history, dating back almost 20 years.  When it began, it was on the leading edge of contemporary services in Methodist churches around Iowa.

That tradition continues today!  In the past few months, the band has had several new members join us, and we’ve added literally dozens of new songs to our repertoire – here’s a sampling of the kinds of music we’re doing, as performed by the original artists…

Happy Day (Tim Hughes)

Across The Lands (Keith & Kristyn Getty)

Above All (Michael W. Smith)

Our God Saves (Paul Baloche)

I Want To Know You (SonicFlood)

A huge variety, as you can see!  There’s plenty of music throughout the service, but that’s not all that the service is about.  It’s an informal worship time, with prayers, scripture, meditation, and communion (every other week).  It’s a chance to connect with God, and with each other, at a time that may be more convenient for busy families as well as older adults.  We would love for you to stop by this Saturday – come as you are, and worship with us!  Want to find out more?

(Oh, and while you’re at it, why not Like the Saturday At First Facebook Page – we will put special announcements on there, and hopefully soon, recordings of recent worship services!)
