Many people describe the way they are feeling these days as weird, tired and frazzled.  Scripture instructs us to "praise the Lord at all times" (Psalm 34:1).  In this series we will explore the benefits to wroshipping god in the midst of trouble.

Pastor Heather Foles


 

This summer let's take a virtual pilgrimage in the Holy Land.  Our church's trip was cancelled because of COVID-19, but together we can learn about many of the holy sites they planned to visit in Israel and hear Bible stories from those locations.  May we all experience an abundance of God's love and growth in our discipleship as we travel through this sacred place.

Pastor Jason Torres



God delivered his people from bondage, through the wilderness and into the promised land.  Along the unknown way, God nurtured qualities for success in his people.  As we move through this time of quarantine to staged opening to new normal, we are all in unknown territory.  God hears us, loves us and will provide all we need to thrive now and in the future.

Anyone who believes in Jesus as Lord and accepts God’s loving grace has been born again into a new life.  During the Great 50 Days of Easter, we will use wisdom from 1 Peter, which was written to Christians scattered and distressed, to grow in our own strength, holiness and hope.

A meeting with Jesus Christ offers an opportunity and invites a response.    The gospel scriptures introduce us to many people who heard Jesus speak a word about their life. Some responded with joy and  gratitude.  Some ignored or rejected his word to them. In this worship series, we will also hear stories from congregants about how Jesus has impacted their lives and be invited to reflect on our own unfinished stories.

Pastor Heather Foley


The Apostles’ Creed is an ancient statement of faith.  At CUMC, we teach it to confirmands and recite it with our baptismal liturgy.  Do we understand what we are saying? Do our beliefs translate into noticeable life transformation? The hope of this series is that exploring unbelievers will be exposed to the basics of faith, that believers will be helped to articulate their faith for sharing faith stories, and that all might be changed by grace.

01/12/20  Celebrating 2019 & Visioning for 2020

Pastor Heather Foley


 

“Joy to the World,” a beloved Christmas classic, turns 300 this year. Rather than “joy” being yet another word for “happiness,” we will discover that the depths of joy can be found especially in the midst of suffering, the work of justice, and the presence of compassion–all part of the coming of Jesus to this world and a message the world still so desperately needs.

01/05/20  For All The World: Overwhelming Joy

12/29/19  Wonders Of His Love: 

                  Compassionate  Joy

12/24/19  The Lord Is Come: Incarnate  Joy

Is it unchristian to earn money? 
Is it wrong to save for ourselves and our families? 

 

John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Christian movement, didn’t think so. The important thing isn’t money itself but how we use it.  His surprising advice still rings true today:     

earn all you can, save all you can, give all you can.

11/24/19  Give All You Can

11/17/19  Save All You Can

11/10/19  Earn All You Can

11/03/19  We Don't Need More Money,  
​​​​​​​                   We Need More Wisdom
