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 "intinction" which means that we receive a piece of the bread and dip the bread in the cup and eat both at the same time. We use grape juice instead of wine, and gluten free bread is also available.
We also serve communion on the 3rd Sunday of each month at 8:10 am in our chapel.
Next Week: The scripture readings for Nov. 17 are Mark 12:1-3 and Isaiah 5:1-7 and 11:1-5. Other readings for the worship insert are 2 Thessalonians 3:6-13 and Luke 21:5-19
Prayer for the week: This day is Your gift to me:
I take it, Lord, from Your hand and thank You for the wonder of it.
Lord, be with me in this Your day, every day, and in every way, with me and for me in this your day. And your love and the affection of heaven be toward me. AMEN.

Questions for the week: If you could choose between being rich but spiritually lazy or poverty stricken but pure in heart, which would you choose?
Imagine your life now is just a dream, and when you awake all would return to normal. What heavy burden, human ill, or injustice would you want to wish away, is if it were just a dream?
