How to...

In this sermon series we will be considering a series of "How To Questions" in order to help us grow in our relationship with other people and of course to grow in our relationship with God. 

Rest, Reflect and Restore

As we begin the summer we will take 3 weeks to consider 3 ways to make this a memorable and enjoyable summer.

Livin Forgiven

This is a three week series focused on the pathway of forgiveness that is offered through the lens of the Resurrection.

The goal of this series is to compel us to understand that what we believe about the crucifixion and the resurrection is evident in the ways in which we live with our own mistakes, the mistakes of others, and the mistakes of our families (other Christians).

Finding Jesus

The focus of this series is for us to take a journey of discovery about who Jesus really is. Is there evidence that Jesus was human? Do we know His convictions?  What did He do?  Was He the Messiah? Can He really save me?

Living Intentionally

2017 Is the Year of the Difference Maker.  In this sermon series we are going to consider what intentional practices we need to take in order to be difference makers.  As we discover these intentional practices we will seek out ways to make these consistent practices in our daily living.

Joy Has Dawned

This series will invite you to consider how to wait in expectation for the Good News of Great JOY!  Journey with us as we invite the Light of the World - Jesus the Messiah, The Child born in a Stinking Stable, to dawn in your heart.

Paul: God's Remarkable Puzzle Piece

Paul most certainly did remarkable things with his life. Other than Jesus, Paul is one of the most influential people the world has ever known. Most of us would hesitate in believing our lives will ever have as much impact and influence as Paul’s. Nonetheless the goal of this sermon series is to invite you to embrace the remarkable piece you are in God’s perfect puzzle. Join us as we take a look at the life, the calling, and the message of Paul and discover just how incomplete God’s puzzle is without you introducing your remarkable self.

5 Measures of A Christian

5 Measures of a Christian is a series about how to make sure that you finish well.  You are saved by grace, not by works.  This is not a series about the works you need to do in order to win God's favor.  God already considers you the apple of His eye.  This is a series about how to leave a legacy for the next generation.  A legacy that leads others to conclude that you most certainly must have served a very big God.

Jesus' Life Changing Stories

The goal of this series is to allow Jesus’ answers to our questions of life to cause us to be open to changing our lives.

Building The American Dream Church

What if people could experience a church that was multi-cultural, multi-generational and passionate about equipping people to live fruitful lives for Jesus Christ?  Would it be possible that they might be experiencing The American Dream Church?

This series is about how every American Church can become the American Dream Church.  In this series we will consider 5 ways that First UMC is attempting to become an American Dream Church.

Building Bridge to Civility

As we get deeper into the primaries and closer to the November election it is becoming more and more obvious just how divided our country has become.  The issues are complex and challenging.  They deserve more than a 30 second sound-bite.  Friends and families are refusing to talk to each other because of these issues.  I hope you will join us for a three week sermon series on how Jesus invites us to build bridges to a better way of existence as we look at some key political issues that seem to divide us.
