April 18, 2021: “Touch and See”

 

April 18, 2021 – “Touch and See”
Just before Jesus ascended to heaven, he shared some last words for his disciples. One thing he said was, “You are witnesses of these things.” That had special significance for his disciples, as it does for disciples today. Being a witness is not optional. We actually ARE witnesses – living witnesses. We have touched and seen the Risen Lord. HOW we bear witness to the resurrection is essential to our faith.

April 11, 2021: “Unless I See”

 

April 11, 2021 – “Unless I See”
In last week’s Easter story, things did not go as the disciples expected. So in this week’s story, they hid and locked their doors – and found Jesus in their midst. If in self-preservation, we hide from the overwhelming grace of God, and lock the doors of our mind, how is it that Jesus still comes in?

Worship with us

Sunday morning worship (in normal times)

Sunday morning Worship Service begins at 10am, with music, worship, prayer, community. After the welcoming time, children are excused to age-appropriate Children’s Church School.

After the worship service, join us for Fellowship Time, to rekindle relationships, check out opportunities to volunteer, and have some coffee and snacks.

See the current plans for re-opening the church facilities.

Weekly resources

See this week’s Scripture passages here, at the UMC Discipleship Planning page.

Each week’s Scripture passages are selected using the Revised Common Lectionary. This is the basis for many sermon topics, as well as church school lessons.

The Lectionary has a 3-year cycle, and includes readings from Old Testament, New Testament, and the Gospels. At the end of 3 years, the entire Bible will have been included! The Revised Common Lectionary is ecumenical (used by many Christian churches). See this description for more info.
