3rd Sunday of Advent

 Isaiah 35:1-10
James 5:7-10
Matthew 11:2-11
Luke 1:46b-55

The Lord's Highway

Joy Sunday says it all. The third Sunday of Advent is marked by the pink- or rose-colored candle in the wreath in many traditions. It is the one where we are reminded of the news that shall be a great joy to all people—the news that Emmanuel is born, God with us. And we stand in the promise even today, even here, in this place, in your place – God is with you. There can be no greater joy than that.

Come join us...

2nd Sunday of Advent

   Isaiah 11:1-10
Psalm 72:1-7, 18-19
Romans 15:4-13
Matthew 3:1-12

Stand as a Signal

It is the second Sunday of Advent, and we’re making a declaration. Whether we are heeding the call of John the Baptist to “bear fruit worthy of repentance” or longing for the peaceable kingdom of Isaiah, we are taking our stand for the promise that Jesus offers for our beloved community, a new way of living.

We are declaring and leaning into this kingdom of heaven, living it now in

all the ways we can.

Come join us...

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

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.
