Children’s Moment of Worship

Hi! Boys and Girls and Parents!

This Sunday will be Palm Sunday the first day of Holy Week. We usually share in the service by carrying in palm branches and waving them as the choir sings to celebrate Palm Sunday. Since we are not going to be together at church I am hoping you will join in by making a palm branch at home either this evening or by tomorrow. You can trace your hand and glue 5 or 6 hands together to make a branch or fold a couple sheets of paper together and cut out palm leaves. You can glue them on a stick to make a palm branch Then I need you to ask your parents to take a picture of you holding your palm branch and email it to me. Kailey our youth director is going to put them all together for our worship service this week. It will be great to see everyones picture and for each of you to join in our service with your precious picture holding a palm branch. If you do not have green paper just color a page or use whatever color you have. I am so excited about the opportunity to join together to carry in the palm branches.

I sure miss each one of you and keep you in my daily thoughts and prayers. Have a wonderful time being creative on your palm branches!
please email to: and
Ms. Denise

It Is Well With My Soul

The UM Hymnal, No. 377 (vv. 1 & 4)

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.


It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

And Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

Pastoral Benediction

A Message From Bishop McKee

Bishop McKee: Be The Church Our Communities Need

As a pastor for 30 years, I never canceled a worship service. With ice and snow on the ground, a small group of people and I would gather to worship wherever I served. Last week was the first time in my ministry I have been part of canceling worship services. It was necessary and wise in order to help prevent the coronavirus from spreading.

As Jesus tells his disciples in Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” This is a vivid reminder to us all that church isn’t simply the building where we worship on Sundays or conduct programming throughout the week. This could be a time when we create even more new spaces.

On Sunday throughout the North Texas Conference, we saw proof that the spirit of God is alive and well where it matters most: in the hearts of all United Methodists and in our communities. I commend our pastors and lay leaders for putting together quality worship experiences for our congregations despite the conditions brought about by the coronavirus and COVID-19.

We saw instances of churches – of all sizes – that never before offered a livestreamed worship component find ways to connect their congregations virtually. As I was looking at many of these worship services, the imagination, innovation and dedication were evident. I thank God for you, and I am proud of you.

During the ensuing weeks, we will be living in a new and difficult reality … not only for churches, but for schools, restaurants and any number of places where people gather. This is a challenge for all religious communities, but it also affords the United Methodist churches in the North Texas Conference opportunities to be in ministry with those who have been – or will be – affected by the quarantine that will be taking place.

Many of you have begun preparations to meet the needs of children and people who are vulnerable to the virus. Others want to find ways to become involved. It is my hope that, together, we can identify new opportunities to be the church that our communities need at this time.

As more becomes known, I will gladly share that with you. In the meantime, I encourage you to visit the coronavirus resources page on the North Texas Conference website for information pertinent to your ministry.

Thank you for your faithfulness. Next Sunday, I will worship with many of you as you proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.
