The service is held in an intimate, family setting with a typical length of 1 hour. All are welcome. You’ll find all kinds of folks at Solon United Methodist Church, and a broad range of attire from moderately dressy to completely casual.

Music in our services is praise-and-worship oriented, featuring a blend of contemporary and traditional music. Worship at SUMC allows people of all ages to experience worship and meaningful teaching in a personal, relevant format. On any given Sunday you will hear music from our uplifting Chancel Choir, Sunday School Choir-Soul Patrol, Praise Band, Double Quartet (DQ), Hand Bell Ensembles, or other instrumentalists, soloists and ensembles. Multimedia presentations are used to enhance the worship experience.

Children of all ages are welcome in worship!  However, for your convenience, we do offer a nursery with paid staff for children on Sundays.
