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 Sunday, May 26 are Jeremiah 31:31-34; Psalm 103:1-18; Colossians 3:12-17 and Matthew 6:5-13. The message, "Forgive Us Our Trespasses", will be on the passages from Colossians and Matthew.
Prayer for the week: Living and gracious God, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ you have brought us out to a spacious place where we are called to live as those redeemed. Empower us by your spirit to keep your commandments, that we may show forth your love with gentle word and reverent deed to all your people. Amen.
Questions for the week: Read the Parable of the Unforgiving Servant in Matthew 18:21-35. Are you more like the master or the servant? Why? Why is forgiveness so hard? How can we learn to be more forgiving? How often do you ask God for forgiveness?
