Faith UMC Update April 18, 2018

Dear Friends in Faith, This Sunday our Scripture focus will be on the 23rd Psalm.  Psalm 23 is the most well-known Psalm and perhaps, even, the most well-known Scripture in the Bible.  Those who don’t attend church have likely heard the familiar first line, “The Lord is my Shepherd….” On Sunday we will consider why […]

Dear Friends in Faith, Christ is Risen!  Christ is Risen, Indeed!  Last Sunday we had a wonderful Easter celebration, including a 6:15am Sunrise Service.  Because of the rain, we didn’t actually see the sunrise, but we certainly felt the rising of the Son in our hearts.  And guess what?  The celebration is not over.  Easter […]

Faith UMC Update March 22, 2018

Dear Friends in Faith, The Season of Lent is drawing us closer and closer to the cross.  This Sunday we will recall Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem upon the back of a donkey, as people waved palm branches and shouted, “Hosanna!”  This path of Jesus ultimately leads to the Upper Room where he shared a […]

Dear Friends in Faith, St. Patrick’s Day is just a couple of days away.  These days St. Patrick’s Day is more of a cultural festival than a religious holiday.  St. Patrick’s Day has become synonymous with corned beef and cabbage and green beer!  Yet there is a religious history to March 17.  It is observed […]

Dear Friends in Faith, Happy snowy day!  It’s not quite as snowy as we expected, but it reminds us that winter isn’t done with us yet!  The good thing, though, is that March snows don’t last very long.  Soon it will melt and we will enter Mud Season Lent often corresponds with Mud Season, which […]

Dear Friends in Faith, During this Season of Lent our worship series is focused on grace. So far we have explored Grace for our Brokenness and Grace for our Weakness. This Sunday we will consider Grace for Foolishness. While Lent is a season for considering our failings, it is also a season to give thanks […]

Faith UMC Update February 22, 2017

Dear Friends in Faith, Lent is living up to its name this year!  The meaning of Lent is Spring or lengthening of days.  Yesterday, with the temperatures in the high sixties, it certainly felt like Spring!  This morning, though, temperatures were back down in the 20s.  Winter isn’t over yet! Life is sometimes like the […]

Faith UMC Update: February 15, 2018

Dear Friends in Faith, Lent is now upon us, the season of reflection and repentance. Often during Lent, Christians give up something (chocolate, coffee) as a way to acknowledge our dependence on God. When we crave the thing we gave up we are to think of God and thank God for all that God has […]
