2019 Lenten Sermon Series: God’s Dictionary

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection.

Join us for worship during this season of Lent as Pastor Karl presents a sermon series entitled “God’s Dictionary.”  Together, we will explore the Scriptural definition of what it means to live a life devoted to Christ.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Hurricane Cleanup

We are having a cleanup day at the church tomorrow morning (Saturday, 9/22) to clear storm damage in the yard. Anyone who is willing to come and help, please do so. If we can get a good number of workers, we should be able to knock it out in a short amount of time. Don’t forget to bring some gloves and yard working tools!
____

Also, our United Methodist Men are trying to coordinate getting help to people in the church who need assistance with clean up or repairs at their own homes due to Hurricane Florence.

If you need help, contact the church. We are asking folks to let us know what their particular need is so we can prioritize which needs to address first. Obviously, an issue with water damage in your home, structural damage due to the storm, or a tree on your home would take priority over a need to clear trees or other debris from your property. Please give us as much information as possible so we can address the most pressing needs first.

We will review the requests for assistance, and begin to look at what can be done and when.

ACTIVITIES CANCELLED

Due to the threat of the incoming hurricane, all church activities are cancelled for this week.  This includes:

Tuesday: Handbell Practice, Outreach Meeting.
Wednesday: Communion Service, Choir Practice.
Thursday: Pastor Karl’s Bible Study.
Friday: Men’s Breakfast.

We currently plan to hold church this coming Sunday.

Everyone stay safe!

Sermon Series: Recognizing Jesus

Join us on Sunday mornings during August and September as Pastor Karl offers a sermon series on the Gospel of Matthew. 

How often do our daily circumstances turn our attention away from Christ who is already present in our midst?  How often has our attention been so focused on that which was not Christ we missed Him altogether?  Tribulations can hide Him from our view, as can instances of good fortune; and, yes, even our practices of doing church can become so central to our focus that we don’t see Jesus at all.  This sermon series will examine the Gospel of Matthew, and offer us the opportunity to open our eyes and recognize Jesus in our midst – regardless of our circumstances.

Sunday worship services are at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m.*

Sermon Series: “When in Rome…”

Join us on Sunday mornings this summer as Pastor Karl offers a sermon series on the Book of Romans.  We live in a society where forces from without and within call for our allegiance.  As we struggle against the temptations of this world, how can we stay true to our calling to follow Christ?  This sermon series will examine Paul’s teachings for the Christians in 1st century Rome, and look at how his directives are relevant to believers in 21st century America.

Sunday worship services are at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m.*
