Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month.
Dear Friends in Christ,
We will continue to follow all CDC and state issued guidelines including wearing masks and remaining socially distanced. Once seated, you may remove your mask if you desire. If you prefer not to attend in person, we still offer online services via Facebook and Youtube.
If you choose to attend in person, we are pleased to say that we have hearing assistance devices available for you at the Welcome Table when you enter the sanctuary. They will be cleaned and sanitized after each use to ensure safety.
Current Sermon Series
Join us for worship on Sundays:
8:30 am Traditional Service
Our traditional service features hymns, usually from the United Methodist Hymnal, accompanied by the organ, choral music, and an affirmation of faith. Attendees at this service tend to dress up, with business casual being the norm.
11 am Contemporary Service
Our contemporary service is more relaxed in dress and style. A praise band leads the songs, which are normally more modern, similar to what is played on KLove (90.7 fm). A children's message is offered during this service. Blue jeans and t-shirts are more prevalent and welcome at this service.
On the fifth Sunday of the month, we hold a combined worship service at 10 am.
Children are invited and welcomed into the worship service. We have special children's programs, crayons and even a "Kids Korner" where they are welcome to sit and plays during worship.
Communion is served on the 1st Sunday of the month during both services. In the United Methodist Church we practice an open communion table, which means that everyone in attendance, including children, is welcome to participate. We receive through prepackaged sanitized containers to ensure everyone remains safe. If you are unable to visit one of the in person services, elements will be blessed and served in a 'drive through' communion in the church parking lot from Noon-1:00PM.
Next Week: Worship scriptures for August 1 are 1 Corinthians 1:24-27 and Hebrews 12:1-13.

Prayer for the week: God, let me play well but fairly.
Help me to learn something that matters
once the game is over.
Let competition make me strong but never hostile.
Always let me help my opponent up.
Never catch me rejoicing in the adversity of others.
If I know victory, allow me to be happy; if I am denied, keep me from envy.
Remind me that sports are just games.
If through athletics I set an example,
let it be a good one. Amen
-A Prayer from St. Sebastian, Catholic Patron Saint of Athletes
