Revolution: Uprising of Love sermon series  

We consider what it means to bring about a revolution within our church so we can bring an uprising of love in the community. The series is called Revolution: Uprising of love. Each week we explore, in worship (8:30 & 11:00 am) and in small groups (9:45 am), what we believe is our responsibility within God’s creation as articulated in our United Methodist Social Principles.
