SEASON OF EXPECTION - Nov. 30, 2014

Advent begins the Christian year with the first Sunday nearest November 30th. The Advent wreath is a Christian tradition that symbolizes the passage of the four weeks of Advent. Each candle represents an aspect of spiritual preparation for the celebration of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. Today we begin with HOPE, believing that God keeps His promises. This will be followed by PREPARATION, then JOY, LOVE, finally with the lighting of the CHRIST CANDLE on Christmas Eve. Please note that December's Holy Communion will be celebrated during this Candlelight service at 7:00 p.m. Next Sunday's morning worship will feature our Chancel Choir presenting the cantata, "The First Noel: Celebrating the Birthday of a King". Bring a friend and share the joy!

SERMON SNAPSHOT - November 16, 2014

This "story" from Paul's second letter to the church in Corinth is soul-stirring to say the least!
He tells of other churches that, even in their poverty, practically beg to give so that the wider church can survive. As United Methodists, we can identify with the growing "connection" between those early congregations. In our day, each church is given the opportunity of supporting part of the total ministry via goals based on the financial ability of individual congregations. We call these goals "apportionments". While we aren't expected to support other churches, our share provides the undergirding of denominational outreach in our district, conference, nation and the world. Here at home, we've been painfully aware of our weakened state over recent years, preventing us from taking care of other needs. However, in our relative "poverty", faithful members have made financial revival a cause to celebrate. By God's grace, the next chapter in our "story" promises to be a testimony to those who have maintained an unwavering trust in Him and their love for Glynlea Grace.

SERMON SNAPSHOT - November 9, 2014

Jesus seldom explained the meaning of His parables, but this time He did. Obviously, He wanted His disciples to understand three basic truths. First, God as the sower is super-generous, even wasteful in the eyes of some. He sows the seed widely and randomly, risking the loss of many seeds but also knowing that some of it will fall on good soil. The second lesson is a warning for those who would disregard the importance of the seed, allowing it to be abused or even lost. Third, God risked the life of His own Son who is the good seed, the living Word. But He knew that those who received Him would be eternally blessed, happy to share His message with others.
