BELIEVE IN THE LOVE AND SPIRIT OF THE CHURCH

AN INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY FOR ALL WHO

COMING UP AT YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD CHURCH ...

22nd Sunday After Pentecost

November 1, 2020

All Saints Day

Revelation 7:9-17 | Psalm 34:1-10, 22

1 John 3:1-3 | Matthew 5:1-12

John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, considered All Saints Day one of the greatest celebrations in the life of the church. This year, it falls on a Sunday. It is a time to remember those who have gone before us, who persevered in the faith, who sometimes came through great hardships, but  who now drink of the “life-giving water,” and who hunger, nor thirst, nor cry no more.

23rd Sunday After Pentecost

November 8, 2020

"The Shout at Midnight"

Joshua 24:1-3a, 14-25 | Psalm 78:1-7

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 | Matthew 25:1-13


Are we listening for the shout at midnight? For the cry of the one who comes? The bridegroom who comes to gather us up? Not to take us away to a different realm, but to live fully in this one. The shout at midnight is the recognition that God is at work among us. Where do we see that presence? How do we experience the presence of our Lord as we go about our daily lives?

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

Matthew 28:19-20

YOU ARE WELCOME HERE ...

Whether you label yourself a "Christian," or are uncertain whether you believe in anything any more, you are welcome to worship at Green Meadow United Methodist Church. Single, married, partnered, divorced, gay, rich, poor, USAmerican, or immigrant, you are welcome here. Burned out on religion -- whether organized, or disorganized -- bedraggled and hungover, addicted or in recovery, just out of jail, you are welcome here. Have no idea about Holy Communion, hymnals, or when to stand or sit? Don't worry, the pastor didn't either when he first stepped into a United Methodist Church as an adult -- and he was welcomed, too. 

We're glad you're here! 

ABOUT OUR CHURCH

We are a United Methodist Community of Worship, serving in the Smoky Mountain District of the Holston Conference. Our mission is to be an open gathering place to nurture Christians in training who, equipped by the Holy Spirit, go into the world and share the light of Jesus Christ.

A MISSIONAL CHURCH

Whether it's building mission kits for flood victims, sending food buckets to Zimbabwe, working with Family Promise of Blount County, helping the Salvation Army's lunch ministry, or gathering peanut butter for the Community Food Connection, "Meadow Folk" are engaged in the missio Dei ... God's mission of love.

SUNDAY ACTIVITIES

Sunday mornings at Green Meadow are, in a way, much of what you would expect when you come to a United Methodist Church: we gather for Sunday School and we worship together. We also share a breakfast once a month, and in months where we have a fifth Sunday, we have a potluck dinner.
