August 5, 2022
As Methodists, we are called to cultivate more disciples and deeper disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of our community and world. You are invited to join us on the journey.
This week
Join Us for Worship
We know Jesus worked with his father as a carpenter, but he knew quite a bit about farming as well. In the month of August, we will walk with Jesus through four parables- a rich fool of a farmer, vineyard workers, weeds and wheat, and the sower- to hear what creation and those who work closely with it have to teach us about the gospel.
