If you live or work north of 635, then come join us for some OLUMC fellowship and great food! Hope to see you tomorrow night!

We’re getting ready to see all your wonderful faces as we rock our with a DJ and laugh as our summer intern voluntarily gets dunked in the tank. We’ve got enough food for an army. Don’t forget to come out and see what we have happening at our yard sale. Basically, just come on out and we’ll have something to make it worthwhile.

Welcome Home Fabian

We were so excited to welcome home one of our own. Fabian Horany returned from an 11-month deployment and we couldn't have been happier. Thank you to Fabian and to all who serve for us. We are thankful that he returned home and joined us this morning. It was amazing to see him and worship with him.
Here is the blessing in case you can’t hear all the words:
There's no place like home. Diana Butler Bass reminds us that home is where we are known and loved for who we are. Home is where we learn to love well. Home is all the sweeter when we return after being away for a time. Today, we have the joy of welcoming Fabian home after being deployed to the Middle East for several months. We are grateful for his military service. As he returns home to his husband John and to the many friends who love him, we want to offer a blessing and a gift...
May this blessing fill your soul like a home-cooked meal
May this blessing replenish you like a long nap on a sofa
May this blessing warm your spirit like a lazy afternoon by the pool
May this blessing surround you with the love of those who care for you the most
May this blessing always whisper of home, no matter where you are.

July 7th Offertory, Jose Guzman

Huge thanks to Jose Guzman for gracing us with his glorious voice during our offertory this morning. We were all in awe of his voice.

The Gospel of Luke: Chapter 10/Rev. Rachel Baughman, July 7, 2019

“It will be important in the moment of getting bitten, to remember that God’s peace abides in you. That you don’t have to be weighed down, beaten down, by even the worst of those bites. But that you can pick yourself back up and shake it off…”- Rev. Rachel Baughman

As Boy Peers Curiously Over Border Wall, His Artist Asks: 'What Is He Thinking?'

We will finish out our study, "A Place Called Home," this week by considering Week 6 of Wes Magruder's book, "Jesus Was a Refugee," along with Hebrew 13:1-3. Join us for our 9:30am Grow Study discussion and 11:00am Worship

npr.org JR, a French street artist, hasn't answered that question — and that's the point. His massive artwork on the border, which coincided with the decision to rescind DACA, is the "start of a discussion."
