Worship for Sunday, June 13, 2021 (Better 1)

For Sunday, June 13, Pastor Park Hunter preaches “If It’s Too Loud…” based on 1 Corinthians 12:31b-13:3. Paul wrote to a squabbling church to offer a better way – the way of love. In this era of shouting pundits and loud disagreements on social media, it’s time to quietly listen to Paul’s words again. 1 Corinthians 13 isn’t just for weddings. The missing ingredient in our churches and our society is love. This is the first in our June series, “The Better Way.”

Pastor Park leads the Kids’ Time. During the God Moment, we’ll baptize Laney H. at the Classic service and celebrate her baptism at the Praise service.

Sandy Koster, Kimberly & Jeff Wadewitz, and Kathi Beane lead hymns at the 8:30a Classic service. Cory Groves, Sandy Koster, Natalie Halderson, Cathy Novy, and Grace Hoskin lead music at the 11:00a Praise service.

Worship for Sunday, June 6, 2021

For Sunday, June 6, Bishop Hee Soo Jung preaches “Life in the Spirit,” based on Romans 8:12-17. Bishop Jung talks about the influence of the Holy Spirit in our lives and our church. In a world that emphasizes stark either/or, win/lose divisions, the Spirit unifies us and helps us face the world’s troubles together.

For the Kids’ Time, Assistant to the Bishop Dan Dick remembers visits to the fruit orchards. The God Moment is “Blessed is the Church,” the 2020 State of the Church report from the UMC Council of Bishops.
