Current Sermon Series
Join us for worship on Sundays:
8:30 am Traditional Service
Our traditional service features hymns, usually from the United Methodist Hymnal, accompanied by the organ, choral music, and an affirmation of faith. Attendees at this service tend to dress up, with business casual being the norm.
11 am Contemporary Service
Our contemporary service is more relaxed in dress and style. A praise band leads the songs, which are normally more modern, similar to what is played on KLove (90.7 fm). A children's message is offered during this service. Blue jeans and t-shirts are more prevalent and welcome at this service.
On the fifth Sunday of the month, we hold a combined worship service at 10 am.
Children are invited and welcomed into the worship service. We have special children's programs, crayons and even a "Kids Korner"where they are welcome to sit and plays during worship.
Communion is served on the 1st Sunday of the month during both services. In the United Methodist Church we practice an open communion table, which means that everyone in attendance, including children, is welcome to participate. We receive through "intinction" which means that we receive a piece of the bread and dip the bread in the cup and eat both at the same time. We use grape juice instead of wine, and gluten free bread is also available.
We also serve communion on the 3rd Sunday of each month at 8:10 am in our chapel.
Next Week: The scripture readings for Sunday, March 18, are Jeremiah 31:31-34; Psalm 51:1-12; Hebrews 5:5-10 and Luke 23:44-49. The sermon, “Into Your Hands I Commend My Spirit,” will be on the passage from Luke.
Prayer for the week: God of suffering and glory, in Jesus Christ you reveal the way of life through the path of obedience. Inscribe your law in our hearts, that in life we may not stray from you, but may be your people. Amen.
Questions for this week: How is this passage the same from what we heard in Mark (15:33-39)? What is different? How does that change how you see the crucifixion? How do we turn our Spirit over to God? What do you think the centurion’s statement means?
