Worship Ministries


Music is an integral part of our ministry here at Powhatan United Methodist Church!
As the Psalms tells us:
7:17   I will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high
28:7  And with my song I will praise Him!
33:3 Sing unto God a new song!
42:8  In the night God’s song shall be with me!
100:2  Come before His presence with singing!
We will sing and play instruments for God’s glory!

We have opportunities for all to serve through song here at Powhatan UMC.
Voices of Victory:
An adult choir that sings at both 8:30 am and 11:00 am worship alternately throughout the year.  Rehearsal is 7:00 pm each Wednesday night in the sanctuary.

We encourage our budding pianists and instrumentalists to play in worship. Please contact our music director if you are interested,


The acolytes are a key part of the worship team because they symbolically bring in the light of Christ. Because of their importance, it is not unusual for children, youth and adults to serve in this manner.



visit Powhatan United Methodist ChurchGreeter Ministry Receives Blessings! It truly is a blessing to serve as a Greeter. As a Greeter, you are God’s servants welcoming visitors and members to worship each Sunday morning to celebrate the glory of God. Can you think of a better way to start your day? Or a better way to meet new folks?

Participation is at the 8:30 or the 11:00 service. You will be included in the next schedule beginning July 5th. Your commitment will be to serve 1-2 Sunday’s per quarter. You will be provided with the schedule, fellow greeter list, and a letter describing basic responsibilities. If you have a scheduling conflict with an assigned Sunday, you can contact others on the greeter list to trade dates or contact me (

God's love for people is communicated through those who greet others with joy and sincerity and provide special assistance to those in worship service by helping with children or having a spare bible ready.


The ushers serve a very important role in the worship service and perform a variety of housekeeping duties before, during and after the service. The ushers provide a warm, friendly atmosphere for each worship attendee. He/She manages the non-religious aspect of the service, answering questions about the church and the service, assists those with special needs and observes the congregation to see where he/she may be of help.


Dorcas Ministry

The Dorcas Ministry serves to beautify our sanctuary through the creation of banners and paraments for the altar.

Acts 9:36-42 tells us about Dorcas, a woman of Joppa, who was a Godly woman. As such, she was in service to her community, notably the widows and poor. When she died, her friends were devastated and sent the men 12 miles to Lydda to ask Peter to come.

When Peter arrived he heard of her good deeds and saw the robes and other clothing she had made and knelt in prayer. Then he said, "Tabitha, get up." She opened her eyes and sat up. God had restored her life. Her Greek name, Dorcas, means the female of a roebuck, a gazelle and emblem of beauty, as does her Aramaic name, Tabitha.
