January 26, 2020: Jesus changes people’s lives. Jesus changes where people are going. Jesus changes people’s priorities. To follow him means change. This Sunday we’ll experience it firsthand through the lives of his first disciples. They left their nets and followed him. They made a choice, and it was for Jesus. Join us as we consider the ways that Jesus has called us into changed lives. Rev. David Eardley preaches.

January 26, 2020:  A troubled relationship. A distant child. An overbearing boss. Tension happens in all areas of life. How might our relationship with Jesus help us in times of tension? How might we shine Christ’s light to others who are experiencing tension?  Rev. Erin Fitzgerald preaches.

January 19, 2020:  “Come and see.” With these words, Jesus begins inviting others to follow him. How powerful these words are. Through being with Jesus and seeing his ministry to others, these first disciples will begin to see him for who he is… God’s own Son. How might we, through our presence and our actions, help the world see Jesus in us and in the world? Join us as we come and see Jesus.  Rev. David Eardley preaches.

January 19, 2020:  A new house. A different job. A new relationship. A new kid. Life is full of transitions, some good, some bad. All transitions cause stress. What does our faith offer us in times of transition? How might we be a blessings for those we know who are experiencing transition?  Rev. Erin Fitzgerald preaches.

January 12, 2020: At Jesus’ baptism, God calls him, “Beloved.” It is such a significant affirmation as he begins his ministry. How do you respond when you hear God calling you, Beloved? Join us this Sunday as we receive this good news from God and share it with others. This Sunday is also United Methodist Women Sunday, as we celebrate their incredible ministry in our community and in our world. Truly, they are committed to helping others hear God calling them “Beloved.”  Rev. David Eardley preaches.

January 12, 2020:  A new diagnosis. An ailing parent. A faltering economy. Many things can cause us trouble, can knock us off our well-planned groove. What does our faith offer in times of trouble? And how might we offer that faith to others in their times of trouble? Rev. Erin Fitzgerald preaches.

January 5, 2020: Everyone who sought out the baby Jesus had different ideas about what the Christ child was about. They were all surprised! For some, it was a pleasant surprise. This is what Epiphany is about: seeking one thing, but finding something else. The surprise is that something else is something better. Check it out! Rev. Rick Kress preaches.

January 5, 2020:  To start the new year and new decade, how about an Epiphany and Easter sermon all woven together in a Christmas movie? Another question: Have you ever thought about how much your life has touched and made a tangible difference in the life of others, perhaps for someone who has lost focus or special dreams? Come visit with George Bailey from It’s A Wonderful Life as he experiences Epiphany through the One who is life and the light of the world and Easter redemption. Here lies hope beyond despair. Rev. Judy May preaches.
