Prepare for Worship

Homer United Methodist Church
Prepare for Online Worship

This week's scripture is rated PG-13!
There are issues concerning marriage, sex, family obligations, and power. Since there are some words that I will not say out loud on the internet, I created an annotated scripture reading in the Worship Guide. Please be sure to read the Worship Guide ahead of time so you have the background knowledge you need.

Prepare Your Space:
  • minimize distractions online and around you
  • light a candle as a reminder that the light of Christ is always with us 
  • pray for your pastor!

Joe's grandmother,
Opal Francis Hatfield Talbott.
Her family was famously embroiled in a fight with the McCoys.

Do you have an ancestor whose story you'd like to share during this series?
Our family members can be highly influential in our lives and to our faith. Do you have a relative who taught you about faith or took you to church?

If so, email Pastor Lisa for more details and instructions for the format.

We'd love to see pictures of the people who have influenced your life and faith!
