Small Group Study in May/June

Our small group study will meet to discuss Our Strangely Warmed Hearts. 

Rev. Karen P. Oliveto, the author, was elected as a bishop of the United Methodist Church in 2016. She was the first woman to serve as the senior pastor at Glide Memorial United Methodist Church in San Francisco, the fifth largest congregation of the UMC. She is also the first openly lesiban bishop.

The United Methodist Church will gather for Special Conference in 2019 in which we as denomiation will set the course for its future especially regarding our doctrinal stance of homosexuality. The Council of Bishops has adopted the suggestion by the Commission of a Way Forward with One Church plan that endorses theological flexibility for each pastor, congregatoin, and annual conference.

While the future of the UMC is unclear at the moment, we encourage our congregation to pray for our denomination first. We also invite our congregation to be equipped and prepared more theologically and spiritually by studying the history, stories, and theological argument of our LGBTQ brothers and sisters within the UMC.

Laughing with God!

We are celebrating Easter on April Fools’ Day this year. One might say, “Christ is risen.” “Really?” “Well, it is April Fool’s Day.” It is something that does not make sense scientifically. But it is a witness that has passed down to us through the Church from the empty tomb. On this day, the religious authority, military threat, fear, and death became objects of God’s laughter when Christ was risen from death. We invite you to join us for five weeks sermon series and small group study with a theme, “April Fools! Laughing with God”
April 1 (Easter) – Laughing with God at Death
April 8 – Laughing with God at the Impossible
April 15 – Laughing with God at Legalism
April 22 – Laughing with God at Respectability
April 29 – Laughing with God at Life
The small group study is at 9:30 am on Sunday. Our worship starts at 10:45 am. We invite you to join us and laugh with God together.
*The sermon series and small group study are developed by Doug Damron, Jonathon Kollmann, Jim Stauffer.
