“The Church on the Hill with a Heart for All:
Learning, Loving, Sharing and Serving God.”

COME WORSHIP WITH US

INDOOR WORSHIP SERVICE begins at 8:45 AM in the Sanctuary. CDC guidelines are followed: masks are required, social distancing is observed. This worship service is also live-streamed on Youtube. We soon hope to add a stream for Facebook.

OUTDOOR WORSHIP SERVICE starts at 10:30 AM behind the Weller House, across the street from the church. This service is dependent on dry weather so check the church Facebook page for last minute cancellations.

One other option to encounter God through worship is Sermon by Phone. We provide an audio recording of each week’s scripture reading and message. To access Sermon by Phone, call 240-288-1302. The message is changed every Saturday evening.

Copies of the sermon are posted as a pdf to the church website each week. You can access the sermon page by clicking here.

AVAILABLE NOW: THE STORY OF WELLER UMC’S PASTORS

We have a book for sale that will help fund the Weller UMC Cemetery Association. The book is called The Pastors of Weller’s Church, From United Brethren to United Methodist. This book tells the story of a select group of individuals—the pastors who served this church from its founding in 1830 to the present. The book contains an introductory chapter surveying the lives of the pastors followed by a section with biographic sketches of each pastor who has served Weller. Where possible, photos of the pastors and their families are included. The book is in paperback with a plastic spiral binding. 

The Pastors of Weller’s Church is on sale for $20 per copy. All proceeds go to the Weller UMC Cemetery Association fund for the upkeep of the cemetery.

The upcoming weekend is Memorial Day weekend. We will observe Memorial Day with a special time of prayer in our worship service for those who gave their lives in the service of their country. This is also Trinity Sunday in the church calendar. This Sunday we remember and celebrate the God who is three-in-one and one-in-three. Our liturgy will help focus our worship on the reality of the Trinity in our lives and in our world. My message is called “The Spirit is My Witness.” It is based on Romans 8:12-17. If you’ve ever wondered what the Holy Spirit is up to, you find out right here. The Spirit is making a people for God by calling us together into one family. Children of the Living God, that’s who we are. What does it mean to be a child of God? Come and see this Sunday.

Agape,
Pastor Bob
