Worship on the Water meets on Sundays from May to Labor Day weekend on the shore of Lewis Smith Lake. The worship site features both car and boat access. Come as you are and experience God in the beauty of the outdoors this summer!

We gather at 8:30 and worship starting at 9AM

What to Expect

Worship on the Water is a relaxed, contemporary service in God's great outdoors.  We gather at 8:30AM each Sunday with coffee, pastries, and friendly people.  We begin worship at 9AM.

What About Kids?

We love kids!  Whether you're young in age or young at heart, you're welcome to worship in the way that moves you -- literally!  We have bubbles, streamers, and other worship aids for everyone who wants them.  We don't mind at all if people move around during the service.  Everyone needs to get their wiggles out sometimes.

What About Boats?

Come by boat?  Sure!  You have two options.  One is to anchor (or not, if you don't mind drifting a bit) offshore and listen through our speaker system.  We usually have someone on hand on a jetski to hand out bulletins, but even if you don't get a paper one we upload them to Facebook and this site.

Your other option is to dock and come ashore.  You may enter the slough just south (downstream) of the pavilion where you will find several docks.  Choose one on the left and come up the pathway.  Another option is to tie to the dock just north of the Pavilion, or to beach your boat and tie it off to the power pole at the boat ramp.  Please leave plenty of room for people wishing to use the ramp during your stay.

Whatever your choice, look for people in bright orange vests to give directions and help.

What About Cars?

Coming by car?  Follow our handy signs, or put the address (224 County Road 3146, Houston, AL) into your favorite GPS app and come on.  As you enter the gate and the pavement ends, keep straight ahead and climb the hill.  Look for volunteers who will direct you to the best parking place.  Remember the loop is one way, so as you exit you will continue around the loop and back through the gate.

What About Rain?

We have been extremely blessed -- we haven't had to deal with rain at all yet.  That said, our rain plan is to huddle closer under the pavilion.  As our pastor says, "pretend like you love each other!"

Our church's policy is that if there is a tornado warning for the Houston area during a regular service (including Worship on the Water, the traditional service, or Bible study), church is automatically canceled.  Severe Thunderstorm warnings would likely cancel a WOW service.  All weather announcements are handled on the HMUMC Facebook page and (as appropriate) the WOW Facebook page.
