We hope you will join us for worship on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. The Sunday morning services follow a traditional order of Christian worship with a variety of music, prayers, and a sermon. Children and Youth Sunday School classes begin at about 9:45 a.m., following Children’s Time. Our services are very visitor-friendly, last approximately one hour and are followed by fellowship time in the Fellowship Hall. An adult Sunday School class, now studying Bible, Culture and Community, meets at 10:50 in the Fireside Room.
The October Faith In Action is available here.
Coming Soon . . .
- October 21, 8:00 a.m. – Men’s Breakfast at Fireside Lounge
- October 28 – Women’s Gathering – 9:00-10:30 a.m.
Any woman in the congregation who is interested in starting interest groups for women is invited to a continental breakfast at the church. We will gather to talk about what women would like and figure out the next steps in the process. We have a core group of women, but want to hear from any woman who has an interest. If you are unavailable on the 28th, please let Liz Chun, Carol Schuldt, Dawn Kinnunen or Bonnie Dick know of your interest or ideas.
- October 29 – Day of Service
After worship we will have a day of service followed by a potluck. We will be making cards for the Mobile Meals program that operates out of our building. We will also be making four kinds of kits: school bags, birthing kits, health kits and cleaning buckets (formerly called flood buckets) for distribution by the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). These kits/buckets will be delivered to the Midwest Mission Distribution Center in Chatham, Illinois. In addition, we will be making Christmas shoebox gifts for Spirit Lake Ministry Center, which serves the reservations in the Dakotas and Red Lake in Minnesota. To prepare for the day of service we need your help in bringing items for the kits and shoebox gifts we will be making that day. Click here for a list of items needed.

Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 7–8:30 p.m. and Sunday mornings at 8:45 a.m. prior to the worship service from September through May. Director John Kemp and accompanist Joan Fitch welcome all singers to join the choir.
