See You at Church

Robert Stovall, Director of Music & Worship Arts, gives a quick preview of the music offering for this Sunday.


The season of Lent is an opportunity to reflect on our lives, our loves, and God’s life-giving grace. 

Sometimes God’s Grace is a whisper, sometimes it is a shout. Always we must be listening.



UMW Sunday

This Sunday in all our worship services and beyond we as a church will celebrate the longstanding service of our own vibrant chapter of United Methodist Women (UMW), led this year by President Sara Harris who will be speaking in all services.


Why is it Taking So Long?

The decision not to hold services indoors wasn’t made out of fear, but rather with our deepest respect for health and life. Our love for God and our neighbor drives us, and we are called by John Wesley to do no harm.
