The new bi-district Superintendent, Rev. Dr. Sarah Calvert will be joining us for worship on Sunday, August 1 as she brings a message on 1 Corinthians 13:12 – 3, “What’s Next: Leading with Love”. She’ll be preaching about what she sees happening next for the local church, post Annual Conference, post pandemic, and pre-General Conference when the United Methodist Church may be facing a split over the interpretation of Scripture and doctrinal challenges related to the full inclusion of the LGBTQ community. Rev. Calvert believes that the local church must learn to lead with love.
Following on August 8, our Lay Leaders will be sharing several testimonies in worship as they explore Matthew 25:35 - 40 and Jesus’ call for all of us to “Serve in Love”. This is one not to miss!
Be Still And Know
New Sermon Series beginning August 15
This series will explore Psalm 46 in its entirety and challenge us to “be still” during all our days, but especially when we are over-scheduled, self-focused, and feeling anxious. Each of us may come to rest in the truth that God is King and ruler of His universe. The good news is that we experience peace when we know that we can trust Him.
Be Still and Know REST! | Scripture: Psalm 46:1-3
Be Still and Stand on HOLY GROUND! | Scripture: Psalm 46:4-7
Be Still and Reclaim Time TO REFLECT! | Scripture: Psalm 46:8-9
Self-preservation is the first law of nature. We try hard to stock up food in the pantry, other supplies in the house, and money in our bank account, and it’s never enough. But God calls us to see and care for the hurt and the needy in our neighborhoods, not because we have enough for ourselves, but in spite of our circumstances.
Be Still and Experience NEW LIFE, EVEN IN DEATH! | Scripture: Psalm 46:10-11
