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: Scriptures for Sunday, April 5 are Psalm 118:25-29 and Mark 11:1-11. Other readings for the lectionary insert may include Philippians 2:5-11 and Matthew 27:11-54.
Prayer for the week: We remember this week how your son directed his disciples to remember.
You shared bread and wine and reminded them of body and blood
and the sacrifice he would offer up for the world.
We bless you that Lent’s journey now brings us from the table
to the cross, and to the grave.
Gather us together even as we feel far apart.
Show us your love through the journey,
so that we may proclaim anew your saving deeds,
and your cross-shaped glory.
Questions for the week: What is God telling you as you pray and remember this Holy Week? Where is there evidence of God's work? Where do you need resurrection and newness in your life? How can you pray for others, especially those who are serving in special and Christ-like ways in this time?
