LITTLE ROCK, ARK. (March 11, 2020) – With the recent announcement by the World Health Organization that COVID-19 is now a global pandemic and the announcement of the first confirmed case of coronavirus in Arkansas, the Arkansas Conference of The United Methodist Church has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel all upcoming events until further notice.
This is difficult territory for the Conference, but we are paying close attention to the evolving situation in order to make the best decisions we can based on information provided to us by the CDC.

Last Sunday our message came form 1 Kings chapters 6-8. Solomon has built the temple where God’s presence can reside on earth, but even Solomon recognizes the magnitude of God is not bound to the earth. As Christians in the 21st century we are blessed with the reality that God did reside on this earth in the person of Jesus Christ. With Christ’s, life, death and resurrection we are now connected to God by the Holy Spirit. This reality creates in each of us the potential by God’s grace to be living vessels of God’s presence here on earth. It also places with us the reality to gather together and be “The Church”. The living breathing hands and feet of God here and now.
This Sunday we will encounter Solomon’s falling away from God and the struggles of the Israelite people under unfaithful leadership. Where do you turn in times of struggle? Who do you seek for council when the way forward is unclear? I’ll see you Sunday as we look to Scripture for guidance.
In Sunday’s sermon, February 23, we opened the book of Ecclesiastes to see the very human struggle of finding meaning in life. Ecclesiastes, the teacher, doesn’t give us platitudes or simple answers. What we get is a real human struggle and a vision of what we all face over a lifetime.
If you are struggling with finding meaning in your life, join us each Sunday morning at 9:30 to sing, worship and look for answers about our own relationships with each other and God.
