The Latest News

Mother's Day was the topic of the morning! All ladies were given
long stemmed beautiful pink-with-white roses
as they entered the Sanctuary.

(Notice that the men were very happy about women receiving these beautiful roses!) 


Jared Rudd, church Lay Leader,
tried to catch all ladies' attention at the door
with his antics and charm!



As the ladies found their seats before the service, the smiles just kept coming!






The Altar flowers replicated the individual roses that the ladies had received.



Music featured the
Chancel Choir Ladies & Kids L.I.F.E. Kids 
together singing "My Mother's Love." 


The Children's Sermon given by Trish Hodges
challenged the children to figure out
why God made mothers!


Pastor Steve was not to be outdone by all
the special attention to mothers: he especially
honored his own mother through his sermon
titled: "Things Mama Taught Me About God."





On Monday, May 7, 2018, Chat & Chew closed out its 15th year
of sharing laughter and joy through love!

    "One of the principal days of the Christian year, celebrated on the fiftieth day after Easter. The Greek word pentecoste means "fiftieth day." Pentecost is the day on which the Christian church commemorates the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles and others assembled in Jerusalem. It marks the beginning of the Christian church and the proclamation of its message throughout the world and is often referred to as the birthday of the church." - Source: A Dictionary for United Methodists, Alan K. Waltz




  • New Sermon Series!

    "Your closest relationships will naturally drift apart over time.  And chances are, right now, one or more of your most important relationships is less than what you wish it could be."

    "Real love in relationships—friends, married couples, siblings, parents—isn’t a magic act. It’s a journey."


    Pastor Steve Holston begins
    his new sermon series
    starting May 20th based on this book!

    Colossians 2:6-7

    6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

    This study of Colossians will end May 23rd.

     Wednesday, at 10 a.m. or 6 p.m. 

    (your choice on which time to attend)

    in the Word classroom

    This study is being led by Pastor Steve Holston.

    "Colossians is unrivaled in its portrayal of the person of the Lord Jesus Christ.
    Some of the most exalted language concerning him is found
    in this short jewel of a letter we know today as the book of Colossians."

    -from an article by Christopher A. Beetham, Phd. about why we should study Colossians
