Sermon Title: Perfect Timing
Scripture: Ecclesiastes 3:1-14
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
Hymn of Preparation:
I Want Jesus to Walk with Me
Be Thou My Vision
Two weeks ago I talked about different kinds of wake-up calls that we receive over time. Some wake-up calls are trivial, and others are more personal.
A recent and more trivial wake-up call for me was when I didn’t listen to my body when I could tell that it was time to finish my mountain bike ride. Instead of going directly back to the car, which would have been wise, I took a 2-mile loop that I’ve always considered easy. The results were a serious wipe out where I was fortunate to escape with only scrapes and bruises. I didn’t listen to my body, and now that accident serves as a wakeup call to listen more closely while riding.
This weekend the topic is what Ecclesiastes says about time. A wakeup call is often connected literally to time or a season where something needs to happen. What I’m finding in Scripture is that we are to listen and be attentive to what God is telling us about this season of our church and our lives. God has made each time for a
purpose. While we often do not understand the purpose, there is a faith that looks past the current circumstances and believes that God is here.
Come join us on Sunday as we talk more about this mystery of time, seasons, and God’s leading.

So, I was encouraged as several church members asked if there is a way to help those who are going through such difficult times. People were referring to the needs in Afghanistan and Haiti. There is so much need, and it’s important that we find credible ways to give. UMCORE is our United Methodist way of giving around the world. They are guaranteeing that 100% of the funds given will go to help people in Afghanistan and Haiti.
Here are direct links to the pages where you can research and determine how you may want to give.
We are open for inhouse church but
WILL continue mandatory social distancing and mask requirements for those who have not been vaccinated at this time.
We will keep you updated when we make adjustments to these precautions.
