With Thanks from Warren - I wish to express my deep appreciation for the reception and send off that the congregation gave me and the special gift of the study Bible with your notes. The Bible has a wealth of other information in it beyond the scripture text and I will enjoy it and treasure it very much. You all are very much in my thoughts and prayers. My prayer is that you will grow in ministry and as a congregation during the coming years. Thank you again for everything and may God’s blessings be upon you. Warren
Student Day Sunday – November 26, 2017 – Gifts to United Methodist Student Day Sunday help deserving United Methodist students continue their education and faith journeys as they strive to make a difference in the world and discern what God has called them to do.
Because of Bethlehem – Begins November 26 - 4 weeks each year, the Christmas season compels people to ask the Christmas questions. What’s the big deal about the baby in the manger? Who was he? What does his birth have to do with me? Of all the responses to these questions, there is one that stands out form the rest: Because of Bethlehem, God knows what it is like to be a human. When we talk to God about our challenges, our struggles, and our tough times, he understands, because he’s been there. He’s been here. Join us Sundays (following worship or Thursday evenings)
Half Truths – God Helps Those Who Help Themselves And Other Things The Bible Doesn’t Say, following worship at the parsonage today. Our last session includes Love the sinner, hate the sin.
