Life Together || July 7 & 9, 2020

The Christian life is meant to be lived in community, together with others. Life together has been a cornerstone of Methodism from the beginning. Reflecting on “The Nature, Design, and General Rules” of early Methodism, John Wesley described Methodists as a community “having the form and seeking the power of godliness, united in order to pray together, to receive the word of exhortation, and to watch over one another in love that they may help each other to work out their salvation.” As we check-in and pray with one another, and wrestle with Scripture together, we hope to live into Wesley’s description of what it means to be a Methodist.

You’re invited to join us for a time of checking-in and wrestling with Scripture: a time for us to discover life and live it together. There are several opportunities to gather this week:

Bishops’ Juneteenth Announcement

Racism is sinful. “Racism is the combination of the power to dominate by one race over other races and a value system that assumes that the dominant race is innately superior to the others… We commit as the Church to move beyond symbolic expressions and representative models that do not challenge unjust systems of power and access.” (from The Social Principles of The United Methodist Church).

On this Juneteenth, The Bishops of The United Methodist Church are calling us–as individuals and as a congregation– to take a stand against racism and press on to freedom. You can find their call to action below.

We hope and pray that you will join in these important conversations, stand against racism, and join us to promote and work toward racial justice.
