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.

Prayer for the week: O God, you have let me pass the night in peace, let me pass the day in peace. Wherever I may go upon my way which you made peaceable for me,
O God, lead my steps. When I have spoken, keep lies away from me. When I am hungry, keep me from murmuring. When I am satisfied, keep me from pride. Calling upon you, I pass the day, O Lord, who has no Lord. -Boran Kenya, An African Prayer Book, Desmond Tutu.
Questions for the week: How did you get your name? What does it mean? Why do you think God waited 25 years to give Abraham and Sarah a son? What dream of yours has God fulfilled?
