Reflection of the Week

Highlights of Worship: May 2nd 2021

The focus of this Easter Season will be on becoming “Easter People.” As we spent the 6 weeks of Lent looking inward, we will spend the coming 7 weeks looking to the Risen Christ to re-shape how we live as disciples and as a church. 

Thanks be to God, many of us will gather once again for in-person worship this coming Sunday! How fitting, then, that Jesus’ teaching for our Easter People series this week is that we are called to “Keep Connected,” no matter how trying our circumstances may be. Like a healthy, growing vine, we must stay connected to God and to one another if we are to continue bearing good fruit (John 15:1-8).

Remarkably, this good and faithful church community has hung in there with God and one another throughout these troubled times, connecting in creative and safe ways so that AUMC may offer fruitful ministries of service to our neighbors today and for many years to come.

Please join us, in person via registration, or via live-stream worship at home (read more about how to do this by clicking here), as we give thanks for the community of Christ that makes us strong.

I look forward to worshiping with you!

Pastor James

Scripture Passages of the Week

John 15:1-8

‘I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine-grower. He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit. You have already been cleansed by the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing. Whoever does not abide in me is thrown away like a branch and withers; such branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.
