Dear Friends in Christ,
We are excited to announce we reopened for in person worship beginning June 7. We have 2 services - 8:30 and 11:00. We will be following all guidance from the CDC and also from the Governor to ensure everyone remains safe. A face covering will be required for those attending. If you don't have one, we will provide you with one when you arrive. If you would like to join us for in person worship follow this link click here or go the 'Worship Sign Up' page from the 'Home'page. We will also be continuing our services on Facebook Live and on our You Tube Channel, or on this site on the 'Worship Tab' and '2020 Sermons'
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 means to ensure everyone remains safe.
Next Week: Scripture passages for Sunday, July 5 are 1 John 4:7-13 and Luke 7:36-50. Other passages may include Psalm 145:8-14 and Romans 7:15-25a.
Prayer for the week:
O Jesus, my feet are dirty. Come even as a slave to me, pour water into your bowl, come and wash my feet. In asking such a thing I know I am overbold but I dread what was threatened when you said to me, "If I do not wash your feet I have no fellowship with you." Wash my feet then, because I long for your companionship. And yet, what am I asking? It was well for Peter to ask you to wash his feet; for him that was all that was needed for him to be clean in every part. With me it is different; though you wash me now I shall still stand in need of that other washing, the cleansing you promised when you said, "There is a baptism I must needs be baptized with."
Questions for the week: If you blew a year's wages on a bottle of perfume, what would your spouse, family or friends say? What risk was this woman taking in coming to the house of Simon the Pharisee? If you had been Jesus, how would you have responded to this act? If this woman showed up at your group or your church, how would she be received? Are you more like the woman in the story or the Pharisee?
