Pray With Fire

If you’re ready to see God work in your life, praying safe won’t cut it. It’s time to pray boldly. To pray daringly. To pray with fire.

The Way of Gratitude

Thankfulness, appreciation, and gratitude are spiritual aspects of being that build joy. A spirituality of gratitude changes our lives and the lives of others, so make gratitude a part of daily life.

Winning the War on Fear

When our world is shaken, it’s easy for fear to spread. But God promises to be with us no matter what comes our way.

Book Reference:  “Unafraid: Living with Courage and Hope in Uncertain Times” by Adam Hamilton.

 

Neighbors

We hear about serving our neighbors as the Youth Mission Team shares about their experience this summer on their trip to South Dakota.

Who Am I?

Pastor Ralph kicks off his first Sundays at Community UMC exploring the idea of identity. What helps form your identity?

A Resilient Faith

We are in the midst of transition. From pandemic life to a new normal, spring to summer and one pastor to another. How might we become resilient in the face of adversity, change and newness as individuals and in our relationships?

Never Going Back

This past year has changed us. We have lost friends and loved ones; we’ve missed out on opportunities and experiences.

Things will never be the way they were before.

As we begin our return to normalcy this Easter season, we’re faced with the questions, “What does normal look like now?” and “Where is God’s promise for new life bursting forth?”

Love is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubling Times

How can love overcome what divides us and move us forward together? Won’t loving everybody make me a doormat—or a hypocrite? How do I find the energy to keep loving when the world seems to be going the other way? How do I find God’s love These questions and many others will have our attention this Lent as we read Bishop Michael Curry’s book, Love is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubling Times, and consider what the Bible has to say about living, loving and hoping in challenging times.

Ash Wednesday

Today, we begin the season of Lent: a 40-day journey (not counting Sundays) to Easter. Lent is a time of repentance, preparation, self-examination and reflection as we remember the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness before the start of his public ministry.
