Welcome 

You are invited to join us for Sunday School at 9:15 a.m and worship at 10:45 a.m. every Sunday!


 

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, yo no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying new-borns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.

We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or like our pastor who can’t carry a note in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re more Catholic than the Pope, or haven’t been in church since little Joey’s Baptism.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like “organized religion,” we’ve been there too.

If you blew all your offering money at the dog track, you’re welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts … and you!

February is Black History Month, and I invite you to check out and embrace the many resources for learning that are available through television, documentaries, books, and social media. Black History is American History, and without it, there would be no American History. My prayer is that you will find these resources valuable as we strive to guard and preserve unity.

Good Morning Church!

Loving God, we come this morning seeking to abide in your presence. Open our minds to your spirit of wisdom, that we may know how to live as your people. Open our hearts to your spirit of truth, that we may love all your people with a love that speaks of justice, kindness, and radical grace. May this time of worship be authentic and pleasing to you. Amen.

Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the message of justice and equality he lived for, Rev. Paul Slack is the guest speaker. He is a part of Church Anew, an ecumenical ministry dedicated to the power of leaders gathered around the promise of sharing faith in new ways, especially in this age of Covid-19. May the grace of God enlighten your heart and mind as you listen to this sermon. Have a fantastic week!

Christmas Eve, Advent and Music Service

Good Evening!

Gracious God,

With joy and thanksgiving, we gather as your people. We have come to hear again the timeless story of Christ's birth. In the excitement of this night, quiet our hearts that we may know the peace and fullness of this holy time. Shine, O Light, in the darkness of our world. Sing, O angels, in the stillness of our hearts, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those God favors." This we pray in the name of the Child of Bethlehem. Amen. (UMC Discipleship)

We have provided a bonus "Advent and Christmas Music Day Video for you. Please remember to prepare your communion elements before you click on the link for the Christmas Eve service. Merry Christmas!
