Worship service – July 11, 2021 – “Do No Harm”

“Do no harm.” How hard can that be? John Wesley defined three simple rules that transformed women and men, and started a movement that became The United Methodist Church and transformed a forming nation in North America. The first of these rules sounds so simple, yet requires many of us to radically change the focus of our lifestyle.

Today’s service includes Communion.

Our services are now being held with in-person attendance, at 10 a.m. Sunday morning.  The service is recorded live and provided in the video below in its entirety.  

Children's Worship
Children’s Worship: Rev. Marylee Sheffer from Napa United Methodist Church and her dogs share what loving like God is like; Sacramento First UMC’s Tracee Siminoni-Clarke reads the Bible verse and JB Brayfindley sings the memory song; Mort pops up in surprising places and learns about loving, too! Watch to the very, very end!


Our Scripture Reading is from Romans 13:8-10 (The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible).  Paul summarizes the law in the simple sentence, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” adding that “Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.”

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service.
Our offering is given to the mission and ministry of MHUMC.  Remember our gifts come from us, as the people of God, for the work of God, to the Glory of God in the world.

The message today from Pastor Linda Holbrook is “Do No Harm.” This is the first in a series based on a book by retired United Methodist Bishop Rueben P. Job, “Three Simple Rules: A Wesleyan Way of Living.” The rules are “Do no harm; Do all the good you can; Stay in love with God.”  See it in the video recording above.
