Welcome

We are a community of faith who takes seriously the words of Jesus to love God with all our heart, soul, strength and mind AND to love our neighbor as ourselves. As a community we seek to act justly, love mercy, and walk with humility. You will find that our motto "All Means All" means that we are a 'come as you are' congregation who provide a place for community, contemplation and comfort.  We embrace diversity. You are welcome here. 

We meet Sundays at 9:30 a.m. for study and 10:30 a.m. for worship.

    Pastor: Let us pray together:

     

    People: Sometimes we just aren’t paying attention.

    We can keep our heads in the sand

    when we really need to attend to difficult situations,

    or the needs of your people.

    Forgive us, O God.

    Guard us from distancing ourselves,

    and help us to care for what’s right in front of us.

    You entered our story through Jesus,

    now help us to enter fully into the story

    of your kin-dom on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.

     

    UMC Hymn #432 Jesu, Jesu by Tom Colvin

    Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love, show us how to serve the neighbors we have from you.

    Kneels at the feet of his friends, silently washes their feet, Master who acts as a slave to them.

    Neighbors are wealthy and poor, varied in color and race, neighbors are near us and far away.

    Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love, show us how to serve the neighbors we have from you.

    These are the ones we should serve, these are the ones we should love, all these are neighbors to us and you.

    Loving puts us on our knees, silently washing their feet, this is the way we should live with you.

    Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love, show us how to serve the neighbors we have from you.

    Know this: Our lives contain continual opportunities

    to be in humble service to friends and strangers.

    You are forgiven and freed,

    encouraged and loved

    by a God who wants you to live fully.

    Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone) CCLI  #4768151Streaming license CSPL154577,Copyright license  775080

    Amazing grace how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now I'm found
    Was blind but now I see

    'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
    And grace my fears relieved
    How precious did that grace appear
    The hour I first believed

    My chains are gone I've been set free
    My God my Savior has ransomed me
    And like a flood His mercy rains
    Unending love amazing grace

    The Lord has promised good to me
    His word my hope secures
    He will my shield and portion be
    As long as life endures

    My chains are gone I've been set free
    My God my Savior has ransomed me
    And like a flood His mercy rains
    Unending love amazing grace

    The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
    The sun forbear to shine
    But God who called me here below
    Will be forever mine
    Will be forever mine
    You are forever mine

    READING AND SERMON

    Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus UMC Hymn #349 by Helen H. Lemmel

    Turn your eyes upon Jesus

    Look full on his wonderful face

    And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

    In the light of his glory and grace

    We remember today all those whose lives were

    turned inside-out by their encounter with Jesus,

    especially those at the Last Supper.

    Please pray for all who come to mind.

    We remember today those people who give their time and effort, who are reaching out 

    to give clean shelter, food, and clothing to those whose wellbeing has been

    compromised by joblessness, homelessness and tragedy;

    We remember today those who work to end human trafficking in our community, our nation, and the world.

    Please pray for all who come to mind.

    And now let us call to our “mind’s eye”—perhaps with eyes closed if you are comfortable doing that—those people in our lives that need our advocacy, presence and prayers.

    Please pray for all who come to mind.

    Turn your eyes upon Jesus

    Look full on his wonderful face

    And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

    In the light of his glory and grace

     

    SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL by Gloria Gaither

    Something beautiful, something good
    All my confusion He understood
    All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife
    But he made something beautiful of my life

     

     

    IN THE MIDST OF NEW DIMENSIONS by Julian B. Rush

    In the midst of new dimensions, in the face of changing ways. Who will lead the pilgrim peoples wandering in their separate ways?

      God of rainbow, fiery pillar, leading where the eagles soar, We your people, ours the journey now and ever, now and ever, now and ever more.

    As we stand a world divided by our own self seeking schemes, Grant that we, your global village might envision wider dreams

     God of rainbow, fiery pillar, leading where the eagles soar, We your people, ours the journey now and ever, now and ever, now and ever more.

    We are man and we are woman, all persuasions, old and young, Each a gift in your creation, each a love song to be sung.

     God of rainbow, fiery pillar, leading where the eagles soar, We your people, ours the journey now and ever, now and ever, now and ever more.
