EASTER SERMON SERIES: This Easter Season Pastor Lee will be having a special three-week sermon series starting on Easter Sunday on “What is Love?” We will hear how this LOVE has power today to transform every aspect of our loves. Please be sure to join us for this three week series beginning on Easter. Bring a friend or neighbor, and we’ll discover together that the resurrection still changes everything.
REPLACEMENT OF WINDOWS AND UPGRADES TO CHURCH: The church, especially the Sanctuary, is and should be a sermon about God; one that reveals a Great God. Our church is old, and in need of repairs. Please pray about this, and help with the transformation of UMC for new windows and repairs. As God speaks to your heart, please fill out the pledge form and place your donation in the offering plate. This can be done by a donation, or in memory of a loved one.
