Every Sunday 10:15 - 11:15 am
Sunday morning traditional worship includes congregational singing of traditional hymns, scripture and prayer, special music and readings, children’s message and adult sermon. When entering the sanctuary, greeters will give you a printed bulletin.
Holy Communion is usually observed on the first Sunday of each month.
Every Sunday 9:00 - 10:00 am
Sunday School (Christian Education) is offered year-round at 9:00 am on Sundays and provides a consistent, structured, cumulative, age appropriate education with a curriculum centered on Bible readings (stories for the younger kids) and application to life.
Because the curriculum builds on previous lessons, weekly attendance is encouraged in order that the children completely understand each lesson.
What to Expect
What kind of Church are we?
English Settlement is a United Methodist Church. We have roots going back over 150 years in the Methodist heritage, and hold it as an important element of our history. We meet in an historic building which reminds us of our past, yet we serve a living God so our mission is unfolding before us.
English Settlement is a community church. While people from all over the South East Wisconsin area join us, we believe we are central to the community of Burlington in which we are planted. Click here for our location and office hours.
Most importantly, English Settlement is a safe place for people who are looking for answers to their spiritual questions. It’s also a place where those who have decided to follow Jesus Christ can learn and be encouraged in their spiritual growth.
What should I wear?
Feel free to wear whatever clothes make you feel most comfortable. We care more that you’re here, than what you wear.
How long are our services?
We plan for an hour but sometimes go a little longer.
What are our services like?
English Settlement’s services focus mostly on worship and preaching. We’ll share some announcements during the morning, express our hearts to God through music, and hear a teaching from God’s word. Pastor invites the children to participate by briefly sharing what they learned in their Sunday School class prior to our service. Both before and after the service, our fellowship hall is open to talk more with people you’ve met.
How do we practice communion?
English Settlement practices open communion. All are welcome to partake in communion who believe in God’s sacrifice for us.
Will I have to say anything, sign anything, or be singled out?
Rest assured you won’t be put on the spot, singled-out, or embarrassed. Though we do receive an offering, we don’t want anyone to feel obligated to give. We do like to collect some basic information from people in our guest registry, but if you’d prefer not to, that’s all right with us.
