Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month.
Dear Friends in Christ,
We are very excited to say that we reopened for in person worship on 01/17/2021. We will have 2 services, 8:30AM Traditional and 11:00AM Contemporary. We will be observing the Governor's and CDC guidance. We will be socially distanced and will only have up to 35 people in the sanctuary for each service. If you would like to attend either service, please signup on the home page or via the page at the top right (Worship Sign Up). If you prefer not to attend in person, we still offer online services via Facebook and Youtube.
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 April 18 are Psalm 4 and Acts 3:12-19.
Other lectionary texts are 1 John 3:1-7 and 1 Peter 1:17-23.
Prayer for the week: ‘Our patient teacher, our ever-pursuing Lord’
Lord Jesus, this story tells us so much about you.
not passive ethereal being, but a pursuer.
not a benign, nice associate, but one who risks speaking the truth in love.
not a coercive overpowering presence, but a patient teacher.
not an isolated, individualistic prophet, but a guest, even a host,
whose true character is seen in table fellowship.
We praise you as our patient teacher, our ever-pursuing Lord.
Questions for the week: When is a time when your faith helped you to persevere or find hope in a difficult situation?
Are there limits to faith? Peter talks a lot about faith in his speech in Acts.
Where does he praise it? Where does he offer critique to the faithful?
