The Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you:  no more than to act justly, love grace, and walk humbly with your God.  

 


 

We are a United Methodist Congregation 


seeking to live out our faith through service, justice, social witness, and striving to be a people of open hearts, open minds, and open doors.

Wednesday Informal Worship

Sanctuary,

Maundy Thursday Communion Sanctuary,

Good Friday Tenebrae Sanctuary,

Visit us for worship Sunday mornings at 8:30 or 10:45.  Dress is casual to business casual. (Wear whatever is comfortable!)

Listen to our 10:45 service every Sunday morning on WCLG-AM 1300.  If you want a bulletin to follow along in our service by radio, please request one. We'll drop one into the mail on the Thursday before the Worship service so you can listen and follow on Sunday.

We also have an informal worship service on Wednesday evening at 7.

On those evenings before worship, we have a quick, ejoyable potluck meal at 6:30. 


Time to face the music . . .

Our Music Ministries department has new faces, and we are overjoyed! Two experienced music scholars, Luke Diamond (working toward Baccalaureate degrees) and Youna Choi (working toward her doctorate), have taken permanent positions since March 15. Luke will conduct the Chancel Choir, and Youna has been accompanying  the choir, as well as providing the accompaniment for our congregation during worship services on Sunday mornings. More information is on the Music Ministries Page

Flowers

Flowers enhance our chancel area during our worship service. People have dedicated them in memory of a persons' birthdays, in honor of loved ones, wedding anniversaries, adoptions, homecomings, and departure for active duty in our armed forces.  

The cost is $35, and we purchase the flowers from a local florist. If you're interested in a particular date, please see the sign-up sheet on the "Name tag" table, or contact the church office: 304-292-3359; sprucestumc@gmail.com

Sharing God's Good News is also What We're About

One way we do it is by radio: Specifically, WCLG-AM, 1300.  To do this, people sponsor our broadcasts in honor or in memory of loved ones, friends, families, and events. The cost is $80. If a friend wishes to co-sponsor with you, and the two of you wish to honor two different people or events, you can share the cost. Sign up at the "Name tag" table, or check with the Church Office for open dates:   304-292-3359; sprucestumc@gmail.com

THE EARLY CHURCH

New Ray Vander Laan Study Begins Sunday, April 12
“Faith Lessons” are fascinating Bible studies with tour guide and historian Ray Vander Laan. Filmed in Israel and Turkey where Bible events actually took place, Ray Vander Laan weaves together historical, cultural, and geographical contexts to reveal keen insights into how people in biblical times understood God and Jesus' teaching . On Sunday, April 12, we will begin our fifth installment of “Faith Lessons” titled The Early Church.  This installment will meet on Sunday evenings from 6 to 7:30 five times, concluding on Sunday, 31 May.
The five sessions include:  “Everything to Lose, Nothing to Gain”, “The Salt of the Earth”, “Where Satan Lives,”  “The Mark of the Beast,” and “Hot or Cold.” Please let the pastor if you plan to attend so that enough resources will be available.
