RITUAL OF FRIENDSHIP (Please leave complete address)


   We have come at Jesus’ bidding, to witness and to understand.

      We have been called by the transfiguring God to lives of love and

service.  We see. We listen. We understand.

  Let our worship reflect the glow we witness, that God’s light, shining within us,

might be a beacon to a world lost in darkness.

Let our light shine so that all can see and be led to the God of love

and grace.

*COMMUNION HYMN #617 (UM hymnal) (stz. 1, 3, 4, 5) “I Come with Joy”







The Lord is with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them up to God.

Let us give our thanks to the Holy One.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.

Like them, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven, we praise your name and join the unending hymn:

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts: Heaven and earth are full of your

glory! Glory be to you, O Lord most high!


We seek to listen to him and we remember him now in the meal he gave us, as

we proclaim the mystery of faith.

Dying you destroyed our death; rising you restored our life. Lord Jesus,

come in glory!


By your Spirit make us one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry

to all the world.

Blessing and honor are glory and power be yours, Holy God, now and

forever. Amen.

Current Message Series: Going Places

For the next 5 weeks we are going places! We are going to Vegas to talk about temptation and going fishing to talk about sharing the gospel. We are also going into darkness to talk about the unknown and into the woods to talk about coming home. Finally, we are going to the desert to talk about being alone. If you think about it, we are all going places. All of us are going someplace when we die, but all of us are also going places while we are alive. Have you ever been tempted? Have you ever been too scared to share the gospel or too fearful to take a step of faith? Have you strayed from God and had a hard time finding your way back home? Have you ever felt alone? Most of us have all been to these places in our lives and many times we don't know what to do or how to please God when we find ourselves without answers.



Meeting at 5-6pm next Sunday Feb. 7th

Current Message Series: Witness

In the first week of Witness we look into the story of David and Goliath. David stood up to his giant Goliath — and won! Sometimes we will face “giants,” but God will give us the courage to defeat them and overcome. Week two dives into the story of Abigail. She confronts King David and stands up for her husband because of what she believes is right. God will give us the strength to stand 0075p for what is right. The third week focuses on the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. They don’t bow down and worship the king when everyone else did. Because of that, they get thrown into the fiery furnace. But God keeps them safe. God will give us the courage to stand up for our faith even when it seems like we are the only ones. In the fourth week we look at the story of Moses. God calls Moses to do something that he doesn’t want to do because he feels insecure. But God uses Moses to perform miracles. God will give us the courage to do great things even when we doubt ourselves. The fifth and final week of Witness is the story of Jesus. Jesus sacrificed Himself and died on the cross for the good of the world that He loved so much. God will give us the courage to give up things we love for things we love even more.
