Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month.
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 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: The scriptures for October 4th are Luke 10:1-11 & 16-17 and Ezekiel 37:1-14. Lectionary insert texts: Deuteronomy 5:1-22 and Isaiah 5:1-7.
Prayer for the week: Give us grace, almighty Father, to address you with all our hearts as well as with our lips. You are everywhere present: from you no secrets can be hidden. Teach us to fix our thoughts on you, reverently and with love, so that our prayers are not in vain, but are acceptable to you, now and always; through Jesus Christ our Lord, AMEN. -Jane Austen
Questions for the week: Is there a place where you have gone where you were aware of and could meditate on the past? A cemetery? A national memorial? Perhaps an ancient city like Athens or Rome? Where is a place where you could contemplate your own past? Imagine a dry valley full of bones. Why might the dryness be significant? What might God be telling Israel through the visual metaphor? Where are you in your own spiritual life; somewhere dry and dusty or verdant and alive?
