Join us Sunday mornings at 10:25 a.m. for some story telling!

Throughout the Easter season (which is Easter and the 6 weeks following) we will be taking a closer look at what it means to tell the stories of Jesus. How do you talk about him with others? Who is he? What did he do? How did he speak? We’ll explore this and more! 

A note from Pastor Jennifer Applegate

April 26, 2024 

Then Jesus cried aloud: “Whoever believes in me believes not in me but in him who sent me. And whoever sees me sees him who sent me.I have come as light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in the darkness. – John 12: 44 – 46  

Dear Friends, 

We continue our series on Story Telling this Sunday. So far, we’ve looked at who Jesus is: the embodiment of God’s kingdom ushering in a community that transforms every aspect of life. We’ve explored what Jesus did: healed the pain and sick of the community, appointing us to do the same. This week, we look at who Jesus says he is as we narrow in on the account found in the Gospel of John.  

The words we’ll hear read on Sunday are words Jesus spoke near the end of his public ministry. While all of Jesus’ words are important, we ought to pay special attention to some of the last he spoke, knowing his earthly life was about to end.  

Who is Jesus to you? How is he infused and integrated into your life? How does your faith impact your day-to-day living?  

And then, how do you share that with others? What’s the story you tell about Jesus? Stories are important. They shape who we are and how we understand the world. The story of Jesus has been shaping Christians for over 2000 years. It is a legacy we are privileged to be a part of and share with others.  

I look forward to seeing you in worship on Sunday, April 28, 2024 at 10:25 a.m. in person or online at

P.S. The General Conference of The United Methodist Church began on April 23 and will go through May 3, 2024. The General Conference is a purely legislative conference and meets every four years to refine The Book of Discipline. Every Annual Conference around the world sends delegates to do this work. The delegation is made up of ½ clergy and ½ laity.  

Any lay or clergy member of The United Methodist Church can submit petitions to change The Book of Discipline. (This is The United Methodist book which contains our history, doctrine, and the ways we organize and govern the denomination.) To give you an idea of the workload, this year’s General Conference had almost 1,100 petitions for change submitted!
