Morgan Hill UMC will worship together on Christmas Eve at 5 pm.  The service will be a festival of Lessons and Carols. The Lessons are readings from the Old and New Testaments that tell the story of the prophecy of the Messiah and the birth of Jesus.  The Carols are songs that show us the beauty of the season. The service will end with the lighting of our own candles as we sing Silent Night. Come and celebrate the Eve of the birth of our Savior. The Season of Advent By Pastor Linda Holbrook Christmas is the most popular of any season in Western Christianity. Read More →

In our complicated and busy world, we are called to “do” yet often long to “be.”  How can we align the “Martha” and “Mary” in us, and where does “resting in Jesus” fit into our lives? This is not gender-specific, as we all can feel the tug of what appear to be conflicting priorities. Our services are now being held with in-person attendance, at 10 a.m. Sunday morning.  Today’s service is provided below in its entirety in video format. Our Scripture Reading is from Luke 10:38-42 NRSV.   Jesus notices Martha being very busy providing hospitality for his entourage and her household. She’s feeling overwhelmedRead More →

Today we close our stewardship campaign with Consecration Sunday. As we bring our pledges to the altar, we are not just making promises of giving, we are “consecrating” them, dedicating them to a higher purpose. We have been encouraged to seek God’s wisdom in how we pledge our resources of finances, time, and energy to the church. As we consecrate our pledges, we acknowledge that they will be blessed and multiplied by God for ministry in this world. Our services are now being held with in-person attendance, at 10 a.m. Sunday morning.  Today’s service is provided below in its entirety in video format. Our ScriptureRead More →

In last week’s conversation about “living generously,” we heard how generosity makes us feel good, and benefits the community. Since this conversation is in a church setting, the next logical question is “why give to the church?” There are so many good organizations that benefit the community, the environment, and others around the world – why choose the church? We’ll hear personal stories from church members about why they give specifically to MHUMC. Our services are now being held with in-person attendance, at 10 a.m. Sunday morning.  Today’s service is provided below in its entirety in video format. Our Scripture Reading is from Luke 21:1-4Read More →
