Welcome 

Happenings in church Sunday, January 14th...

 

Pastor Steve continues his Sermon Series on "the line between good and evil."

 

"The acolytes leave the worship service at the pastor's direction, carrying out the lighted candle lighter-symbolizing the light of Jesus Christ going out into the world where believers are to serve."

 

An Installation of Leaders Ceremony was held at the end of the service....thank you all for your service to your church!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Passing the Peace is a regular thing at First United Methodist Church. At one point in the service we can go all over the sanctuary to meet and greet people! We love that!

  • Sermon Series not to miss!

    Alexander Solzhenitsyn said, "If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?"

     

    Good and evil are parts of every human heart.

    Where did this come from?

    Can

    GOOD 

    ever overcome

    EVIL?

    Join us for a 6-week

    Pastor Steve sermon series

    beginning January 7 and running through February 11, 2018.

     

    ~ good evil | good evil | good evil ~
