DOWNTOWN FOR GOOD

Committed to participating in God’s work from the heart of Lexington.

WELCOME TO DOWNTOWN

The Downtown community is one of the original Kentucky Methodist congregations with a rich history, a vibrant present, and a vital future. The congregation comes from just down the street, across town, and even neighboring communities, representing all ages and life-stages all with a desire to grow closer to Christ as we worship, grow, and serve together. The expression Downtown for Good means more than a location. It’s a commitment to participate in God’s work from the heart of our city.

HAVE A PRAYER REQUEST?

We would love to pray for you and get to know you.

Family Ministries

We have many ministries for families including kids ministry, student (youth) group, preschool, nursery, and more.

ADULT MINISTRIES

We celebrate joys, share sorrows, and pray for one another; we study and learn together and encourage and challenge one another.

SERVING & MISSIONS

We are a church that makes disciples — across the street and around the world.

Worship at Downtown

Worshiping together is always a gift. We offer two services at 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM. Our 11:00 AM service is available via livestream each Sunday. At each service, we come together to hear God’s word, offer prayers and praise, and to be changed. We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of the month, and all are welcome to participate.

The music Downtown seeks to glorify God, inspire His people and welcome all into divine worship. It is, therefore, an integral part of how we worship. Currently, our small ensemble of Choral Scholars provides musical selections in worship.
