A Summer With The Psalms

This summer, our worship services and sermons are focusing on The Book of Psalms.  We are featuring some of our favorite Psalms such as Psalm 23, 100, and 121.  We are also rediscovering beloved verses scattered among less familiar chapters.

*“The Psalter has nurtured, guided, and given voice to suffering for generations.  Its alternating strains of lament and praise show a community coming to understand that “the Lord is King” (97:1).  As such, the Psalter provides a “sung theology” about human nature, God’s greatness, and the order (i.e., the law) of God’s kingdom.”

I hope you will join us each week as we encounter the prayers, confessions, and praises of the people of God as contained in the Old Testament Book of Psalms.

Interested in Church Membership…

Anyone interested in becoming a member of Harmony UMC is encouraged to let Pastor Dave know and select a date for being received into church membership.  

Membership in local congregations of The United Methodist Church comes with four different labels:

Baptized members are people who have been baptized by water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and who wish to be (or in the case of infants and children — are sponsored to be) members of a local congregation of the United Methodist Church.

Professing members are those who have professed their faith in Jesus Christ and desire to become a member of the United Methodist Church and unite with a particular congregation.

Affiliate members are professing members of another United Methodist Church who may be temporarily far from their home congregation and wish to connect with the life, ministry, and watch-care of a congregation nearer to where currently live.

Associate members are people who have been baptized by water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in another Christian denomination, wish to connect with a local United Methodist Church, but wish to retain their current denominational affiliation rather than become professing members of The United Methodist Church.
