  • Disciple's Path Begins THIS Wednesday

    The Disciple’s Path is a six-week class designed for those who want to “jump-start” or deepen their discipleship. The class will look at the history of Christianity, the beliefs of the United Methodist Church, and how we live out our faith through prayer, Scripture, giving, and service. It is great for those who are new in their faith, those who want to learn more about Methodism, and even long-time members. Disciple’s Path is offered three times a year and is required for those interested in joining Memorial as members. The next class begins on Wednesday, September 26th at 6:00PM in Room 301. Pastor Drew will facilitate. Please make time to come by the front office and get your books BEFORE class begins. RSVP your spot in the class by calling the church office.

  • Blessing of the Animals at St. Peter's

      As Methodists, when we bless animals, we are acknowledging that they are gifts from God. It is also a special time to remember our covenant with God, each other, and all creation. On October 7th at 2:00PM, the Memorial family will join with the congregation at St. Peter’s Episcopal for their Blessing of the Animals service. Bring your pets to the courtyard at St. Peter’s. Participants are invited to bring donations of food or toys for the local Humane Society as we honor our pets and homeless pets in the area.

  • New Worship Series and Book Study Begins Oct 7th

    On Sunday, October 7th, we will begin a church-wide study and worship series called Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity based on the book by Adam Hamilton. Over a period of four weeks, we will look at some of the financial challenges facing us as a nation and examine our own spending, saving, and giving habits. Pastor Charlie will also be leading a book study on Enough each Wednesday at 6:00PM beginning October 3rd.
