5th Sunday after Epiphany
Isaiah 58:1-12 | Psalm 112:1-10
1 Corinthians 2:1-16 | Matthew 5:13-20
Here again, Jesus asks us to reflect on the power we already have. “You are salt. You are light.” Not, “Do you want to be salt, or do you want to be light?” You already are. So, given that declaration from our Lord, how will we season?
What will we light up?
Come join us...

Deuteronomy 30:15-20 | Psalm 119:1-8
1 Corinthians 3:1-9 | Matthew 5:21-37
But I Say
Relationships within the body are important, but so is the relationship of the church with the wider community. How can you lift community concerns or needs in your prayer time? What acts of service within the community are already in place that you can celebrate? What additional needs could be met, or invitations issued? Who is missing from the body of the church? Jesus calls us to go above and beyond in our attempts to see all the people.
Come join us...
We Aim to be Open and Welcoming
Even to the Smallest People...
In the back of the sanctuary, we have children's bulletins, paper, crayons, and books for children to use during worship.
We also have a moment in worship that is child-friendly called "Wondering Time." Anyone who wishes to get a closer view during our time to wonder about things is welcome to come sit on the front pew.
YOU ARE WELCOME HERE ...
Whether you label yourself a "Christian," or are uncertain whether you believe in anything anymore, 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, we all have to begin somewhere. The most important thing is to begin.
We're glad you're here!
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
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 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.
