Palmz at the Platz

We don’t have an audio or video recording of the service – here are pictures from the event. Many thanks to our volunteer Ed for taking some photos for us!


One Word

Sometime back I ran across this, maybe some of you have also.  All of the gospel accounts of Jesus’ death talk about him crying out in a loud voice as he died, but only one of the gospels actually records what was said: “It is finished”.  These three words tend to tell us something like – it’s over and done.  Usually not a very positive statement the way we think of it. I’ve had several jobs that I really didn’t…


The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;    his mercies never come to an end;they are new every morning;    great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23 English Standard Version (ESV) How many sermon illustrations are there? How many newsletter articles? Could we run out of ideas entirely, if we wrote or preached for long enough? Staring at this blank page for far too long reminded me of something from my childhood. When I was a kid, I realized that my mom and dad were…

Conservative, Liberal, and Other Labels

Dear Friends, I think I have always had a kind of allergy to labels being placed on me, though I have to confess that I have been guilty of labeling others countless times.  When I was a kid I was “the principal’s son.” Indeed I was, but that label did not always accurately describe me in the ways some folks assumed it did. When I left home I was a “small town kid,” and “country.”  Again, I was, but what…

UMCOR SUNDAY – April 7, 2019

Your chance to help others  Did you ever wonder how you can help when there is a disaster somewhere in the world?  It is through our own United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) that we as Methodists worldwide are able to respond to the needs of those most in need of help no matter where they live.

Giving and financial stewardship are vital parts of the life of any disciple of Jesus Christ. Of course, the church needs the financial support of those who are part of its ministry, but that is not the primary reason we give. More important than the ministry program’s need for funds is the Christian’s need to give. We believe that everything we own belongs to God and that God calls us to give back to him a significant portion of what He has entrusted to us. We do this primarily through our giving to the church, and regular, systematic giving is important as we live out our faith. Tithing (giving 10% of our income) or proportional giving is the practice that best demonstrates this practice.
