Mission: Love God. Love your neighbors. Make disciples of Jesus Christ. Our congregation’s mission statement reflects that of The United Methodist Church. We are “to make disciples of Jesus Christ.” We want to reach out to those who do not know Christ, receive them into the life of the church, help them to grow in the faith, and equip them to go out and serve others in Christ’s name.

"We all do extol thee, thou leader triumphant,
and pray that thou still our defender wilt be.
Let thy congregation escape tribulation;
thy name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!"
- "We Gather Together" stanza 3

[06/18/20]   A note regarding the worship service online:
Last week's service was "slow" sometimes. We THINK this may be due to the words' being added in. We're working on it!

Please continue to give "comments" feedback so we know what you're experiencing. And don't forget there is a YouTube alternative that doesn't seem to have the same issues.

FATHER’S DAY IS SUNDAY, JUNE 21

We won't be together in person that Sunday but we WILL be together in spirit at our 10:30 a.m. WORSHIP LIVE! service.

We still want to celebrate Father's Day in the same special way as we did for Mother’s Day:
We are inviting all of our members who will be joining us for the live service to SEND IN a 1-2 sentence thought, remembrance, or accolade for their father. Gary & Kelsi will attempt to read these during our Celebration Bank time on Father’s Day Sunday.

Please email those to [email protected].

Be pithy, be funny, be teary-eyed...but please -- be brief!

As before, if we are unable to read your entire submission during the service, all submissions will be posted to Facebook in their entirety.

This First Sunday we will again celebrate a Love Feast in lieu of Communion. Be sure to have your consumables handy for that portion of the service. Anything but the traditional bread and grape juice will do - even Starbucks & Krispy Kreme! The focus is on God’s love for us and for each other. Celebrate with us!

The National Council of Mayors have asked for a Day of Mourning and Lament for the 100,000+ victims of covid-19.

Merciful Lord, hear us as we cry out in pain. We come to you remembering so many who have died from this new virus. We come to you lifting up their families who have suffered such loss. We come to you asking for your Spirit of wisdom on first responders who put their health at risk to serve and medical personnel who are weary in body and spirit and scientists who chase a cure.

We come grieving with those who have lost jobs and livelihoods and opportunities to attempts to protect one another by staying apart. We ask for help to feed those who are hungry, shelter those who lose their homes, love those who fall into despair.

Walk with us, Good Shepherd, while we tread through the valley of the shadow of death. Bring us to green pastures and still waters, to a time of health and wholeness, and to a place where we are able to share your love with all our neighbors.

We pray in the name of the one who shared our grief and carried our sorrows, even Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
