August 2, 2020: “You Give Them Something”

 

August 2, 2020
In the middle of the summer, many people with veggie gardens are overwhelmed with produce – zucchini, anyone? And grocery stores are finally stocked again with baking staples, cleaning supplies, toilet paper – things that were scarce only a few months ago. Our attitudes change when we go from a sense of scarcity to abundance.  Today, we focus on the abundance of God’s grace, and how it enables a ministry of serving.

July 26, 2020: “More Than Conquerors”

 

July 26, 2020
Being a follower of Christ doesn’t automatically give one an easy life.  We are called to overcome the negative things going on in our lives by allowing God to work through us.  Today, in the third of a 3-part series on “nothing shall separate us,” we’ll talk about how “we are more than conquerors” and need to have space and time to experience the benefits of prayer.Click to go to the service

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.

Random acts of kindness can add joy to others’ lives, and our own, even while we are socially distant.  Get ideas at the Random Acts of Kindness website. Ideas include:

  • Happy Heart Hunt
