Rev. Dr. Michelle Morris

Hail Mary

John 19:25-27; Acts 1:12-14
We look at Mary as the first disciple, quite possibly the leader of the early Christian Church, becoming a central figure for Christianity going forward. But she is also a woman who has lost a child. She brings together the challenge and the hope of our faith.

Holiday Poinsettias

Our worship spaces will be decorated with poinsettias during the holiday season again this year. If you would like to purchase one in honor or memory of a loved one, click here.

Family Ministries

We have fourteen 6th grade students going through confirmation class this year. They have already been learning about the History of Methodism, the Holy Trinity, and how to access scripture when they need somewhere to turn. Now, they will need our help this spring as we dig deeper into Sacraments, Social Principles, Grace, and more.

If you feel a call to help a young adult on their faith journey this coming spring or would like more information on what being a mentor entails, please contact Allison Earhart.

Stuffing the Stockings

Our annual "Stuffing the Stockings" is this Sunday 4-6pm upstairs in the Douglas Building. If you have a child in elementary or middle school, bring them to help us make craft kits for our friends at the Children's Hospital and the Children's Shelter. We will share a meal after our hard work!


Pastor Michelle's Wednesday night looks at the Proto-Gospel of James

Ever wonder where some of the things we hear about Mary came from when you can't find them in the Bible? For the next 2 Wednesdays (Dec. 6 and 20), Pastor Michelle's Wednesday night Bible study will be looking at the Proto-Gospel of James, a non-canonical Gospel that contains Mary's backstory. Join us in person or through Zoom anytime from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
