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 October 17 are Hebrews 5:1-9 and Jonah 4:1-11. Other texts for the lectionary insert are Job 38:1-7 and Mark 10:35-45.
Prayer for the week: O God of our ancestors, help us to stand with those who have been afraid to speak out, with those who have lost faith because of what they suffered within religious institutions. Help us to be a haven for those who yearn for freedom and respect
that comes through the healing of memories of abuse, trauma and oppression.
Jesus, brother and savior, help us to work in partnership as Columbian missionaries,
so that we can give witness to what it means to live out new ways of being on mission,
of being church, of being Christian, and of being human. Let us overcome the scourge of clericalism and structures of exclusion by the manner in which we seek to work together
as women, men and children,
Questions for the week: How might Jonah have felt when God gave him the call to go to Nineveh the second time? What did he do differently this time? Read verse 10. God seems to have changed his mind about the action he had planned to take against Nineveh? What caused this change of plan? What does this say about how God relates with his people? God was concerned for the people of Nineveh – he’s concerned for the people of our city as well. Compare your concern for your neighbors with Jonah’s concern for Nineveh. Compare your concern for your neighbors with God’s love for them. Is God calling you to say something, or do something in your neighborhood?
