What if we Rethink Church? What if Church weren’t just about Sunday, but also about the other days of the week? What if Church was not just a place we go, but something we do? What if Church was a verb and not a noun? What if Church was not a building but over 100 doors for people to enter and to experience a different concept or experience of church?

RETHINKING CHURCH is vital to helping grow vital congregations. Since 2009 The UMC is casting a vision that inspires hope, faith and action. It calls us to meet people where they are and to engage the world through our faith…a faith in action and not just behind these doors. We want to engage the SEEKER to reach outside the walls of our church that together we might open hearts, minds and doors and transform the world.

Some tee shirts are still available. Donation if you take one or two. Located in the library. Mostly children sizes..but we still have some adult sizes too.

In Ministry Together Sunday September 8th
During this special Sunday Worship we will showcase the many ministries that our church presently offers. Learn more about our Food Closet, Angel Tree, Scouting, Mosaic Prayer Shawl, Congregational Care, School Support, Police and EMS support, Humble Beginnings Day Care, Relay for Life, Shut-in support, Cancer Patient Support, Nursing home visits, and our very expansive Music Ministries to mention some.
WORSHIP: The purpose of worship is to gather as God’s people, listen to God through the Scriptures and through the sermon which should be an exhortation to follow Jesus based on one of the Scriptures, and then we celebrate God’s Story in the Eucharist, and finally we are sent out to love and serve God and our neighbor in the world. Over time the liturgy shapes us into God’s people and helps us to see how our stories interact and are given meaning in God’s Story. The Sunday liturgy as well as daily prayer and these other “liturgies” that mark significant life events from birth through death help us to get out of our me-ism living in our YOUniverse and become a part of something much bigger than we are. It is not about us…it is about being in service for Him.

What is a Disciple?
It means learner and orienting our lives to be more like Christ. It means responding to the call to be a disciple and to disciple others.
Do we have a life worth imitating and that others see Jesus like qualities in us?
Do you want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection? Can you share this with others?
Can you describe a time when God broke into your life with an event that changes you yet again? These moments should happen weekly if you are in the Word and being a disciple.

Are you a disciple of Christ? This means you now:
a) Bear your cross daily
b) Abide in the word
c) Love as Christ loves
d) Reproduce by passing on the news

If not, then make the decision to be one today. What is holding you back? Jesus died for you so you can be Free to_____!
