Traditional Worship at 8:30 AM and 10:55 AM on Sunday in the Sanctuary
The 10:55 services are televised with a one week delay--10:00 a.m. Sunday mornings on channel 14 (cable channel 13)
We invite you to join people of every generation and every walk of life as we come together during our Sunday worship services. We celebrate God's presence in our lives through music, preaching, and prayer. There is a special time for children during each of the two traditional services. Surrounded by the beauty of our historic sanctuary and songs of praise, worship is an inspiring experience.
Child care is available for ages 6 and under. The main nursery is on the first floor of the main building. The closest entrance to the nursery rooms from Polk Street is the southernmost door to the main building.
Dr. Palmer is inviting men to fill the speaking roles portraying each of the 12 disciples as we present “The Living Last Supper". We need 13 men to help - 12 disciples and Jesus. Each man would portray a disciple by memorizing a brief script that shares a particular disciple’s perspective at the Last Supper. The commitment would involve the following:
-receive and memorize a short script
-Meet two Wednesdays, - March 20 and Wednesday, March 27 for “walk through” the scripts
Daily devotionals will be posted on this website--follow this link to view current and previous devotionals. The devotional for each Sunday will also be posted on the PSUMC facebook page.

The season of Lent is the 40 days, not including Sundays, between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. Whenever you see the number 40 in the Bible, it represents a time of preparation. We see this in the Old Testament as it rained 40 days and nights and in the New Testament as Jesus was in the wilderness 40 days.
The Polk Street United Methodist Church television broadcast has been a vital ministry since television’s earliest days in Amarillo, and the Igniting Ministries team is seeking new volunteers to sustain this ministry well into the future.
If you wish to be a part of important and far-reaching ministry, please contact the church office.
On Sunday, March 3rd, Bishop W. Earl Bledsoe will be preaching at Polk Street United Methodist Church.
According to the conference website, Bishop Bledsoe never imagined that he would be a Bishop in The United Methodist Church. "My dad always said it. Even when I was a part time pastor, he would always say 'you are going to preach and you're going to be a bishop one day.' I said 'no, daddy.'"
His Dad was right and he lived long enough to see his son be what he always knew the young Bledsoe would become. Bishop Bledsoe was elected to the Episcopacy in 2008. "I called mom and she went to the nursing home and let Dad know. When she told him, he said 'Praise God. Halleluia.'" The elder Bledsoe died in 2009.
