Community Easter Service at Whittington's Hill

As the Disaster Used Clothing Drive neared its end, several churches consolidated their collections into Johnson City’s main pickup point at the First United Methodist Church. Toni Silver, from St Luke United Methodist Church in Austin, was one who added to the mountain of bags. By the time you read this, the two semis should have made their pickups from all 21 participating churches.

An All-Church Community Easter Son-Rise Service will be held at 7:00A.M. at Whittington's Hill.

He was met by the

The Purpose of Gospel Preaching

“My God is an awesome God,” sang the children of the First United Methodist Church, and their enthusiasm left no doubt in the congregation that their hearts (and bodies) were in their message. Members of the newly formed children’s choir have committed to learn a new song every month to sing as part of the Sunday worship services.

“O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD” (Jer. 22:29). These words, spoken so long ago, reflect what God wants more than anything. His desire is for His creation to hear His spoken word which is “quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents
