If you are new to the United Methodist denomination, you might wonder, "What is a United Methodist Church?" That is not an easy question to answer.
If you are attending the 9:15 a.m. or 10:45 a.m. service, you can also follow the service on the screen which also contains the words of the hymns, congregational prayers and responses and scripture.
“Jesus’ stories about the kingdom urge people to consider how the soil of their hearts receives the seed of God’s word, how their hardness of heart may destroy relationships, why fullness of life flows from forgiveness, how being alert to the call of God at any hour is critical, how justice for the poor is required, and how social propriety and religious strictures may exclude people whom God’s love would include. According to the Gospel of John, Jesus believed people could undergo a spiritual rebirth that allows them to “see” the kingdom at work right now and live in it, even in a world filled with injustice, sorrow, and suffering (John 3:3).”
