If you step into our sanctuary and linger a moment, you may feel pulled toward the sacred. The stained glass tells of Jesus, Mary, Martha, and the woman at the well. The Communion rail’s wide arch signals room for everyone. As you step back out into life’s hustle, take note of our 1927 cornerstone: “Whose foundation is Jesus?” During August, our worship will step into the sacred as we practice worship. Worship resets our souls.

August 5 we will open 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, perhaps the oldest Christian liturgy, and ponder the words we employ in our Communion liturgy. (UMH pg 12).

August 12 we will consider our need for sacred space as we remember Martha and Mary. (Luke 10:38-42)

August 19 we will unpack a theology of “sanctuary,” exploring Jesus’ interaction with the woman at the well. (John 4:4-29 & 39-42).

August 26 we will evaluate our baptismal vows as life cornerstones. (Matthew 7:21-27)

During the Sunday School hour, our children and youth will dig into the practices of worship as they meet together in rooms 213/215. We welcome parents to join us we together practice our faith. On August 5, our children and youth will explore and partake in holy communion together, while making an altar cloth together. I look forward to August 26 as we engage in a worship scavenger hunt together. Come reconnect with the sacred during August.
