Worship Service is now indoors
We are conducting our worship services inside the church now. You can opt to join us in the Christian Life Center for the actual, live service, or sit in the sanctuary and watch the service on the TV screen as it is broadcast through Facebook. We will continue to broadcast on 98.5 FM for those who prefer to remain in their cars in the parking lot. Please furnish your own masks for use in the indoor areas. Thank you.
Upcoming Dates to Remember
The next Church Council meeting will be on Sunday, October 18th at 4:00 p.m. in the sanctuary. The yearly Charge Conference will be on November 1st at 4:00 p.m.
The United Methodist Women's group will resume their regular meetings on the fourth Sunday of the month beginning on Sunday October 25th at 5:00 p.m. (please note the time change.)
Laity Sunday, October 18th
Laity Sunday is October 18th this year. Our lay leader, Bleaka Hollar, will present the sermon as we honor the lay people who help support and keep our church active in teaching and spreading the gospel message to our community and the world.
This service will be held indoors in the Christian Life Center. We will also broadcast the service through Facebook in the sanctuary, and broadcast to the parking lot area at 98.5 FM.
Trunk or Treat is October 31st
We are collecting candy now to be given out on Saturday, October 31st, from 5-7:00 p.m. at our annual Trunk or Treat event. All of the event will be held in the parking lot or under the breezeway in case of rain. We will have a collection box at each service to accept candy for this event. We invite our members to dress up their cars and trucks with spooky things as usual. Come join us for a good time and a safe Halloween.
Homecoming & $10,000 Sunday 2020 Report
We had a good turnout for our Homecoming service--our first indoor service since April. Although we did not quite make our goal, we did receive $8,836 to our General Fund from our faithful members and friends on Sunday. Praise the Lord! May God bless your generosity.
Sunday, October 11th at 9:00 a.m. is our annual Homecoming Sunday worship service, which will be held outside this year as a parking lot service. We will not be sharing a meal, but we invite our former members and attendees to come and worship with us.
Please park your cars facing the front of the church. Smaller vehicles should park on the front rows, and larger ones on the third and fourth rows. If weather permits, you may bring a lawn chair and sit outside your cars, also. Visting between cars is permissible, but please be aware of social distancing, especially around our more vulnerable members and visitors.
We are praying fervently and asking our members, friends, and visitors to reach deep into their pockets and budgets, and give extra on this Sunday as we work to meet our goal of a $10,000 offering for this special Sunday. God bless you for supporting our church and its ministries.
This Sunday is also Pastor Appreciation Sunday and October is Pastor Appreciation month. Please pray for Pastor Alan and his family, and send cards and letters expressing your appreciation for his services to our church and community, especially during these trying and abnormal times

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5: 16)
Our vision is to let our light shine into the dark world so that the world may come to know The Light, which is Jesus Christ our Lord.
