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 scriptures for October 14th are Exodus 16:4-5, 13-26, Psalm 105:1-6,37-45, Hebrews 4:12-16 and Mark 10:17-27. Next Sunday we begin a new worship series, "Moving Out of Scare City" and the message "How Much is Enough?" will be on passages from Exodus and Mark. Pastor John will be back as preacher.
Prayer for the week: God of all who care cast down, you call us to seek good and to meet oppression with justice. Teach us to find salvation in the emptying of ourselves for the sake of those in need, so that goodness may prevail and your kingdom come in Jesus Christ. Amen.
Questions for this week: Why do you think people gather in more manna than needed, even when told not to? When have we/do we do the same? What do you think the man who leaves Jesus eventually does? Why? How do we approach our possessions/wealth?
