On April 19th 2015 we will have a Special Guest: Rev. Ron Litton
His Sermon is Entitled: The Stranger in our Midst

Scripture Matthew 25:31-46
31“But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit upon his glorious throne.

32 All the nations will be gathered in his presence, and he will separate the people as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

33He will place the sheep at his right hand and the goats at his left.

34“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world.

35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.

36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.

’37“Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink?

38Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing?

39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’

40 “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters,[c] you were doing it to me!’

41 “Then the King will turn to those on the left and say, ‘Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his demons.[d]

42 For I was hungry, and you didn’t feed me. I was thirsty, and you didn’t give me a drink.

43 I was a stranger, and you didn’t invite me into your home. I was naked, and you didn’t give me clothing. I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’

44 “Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?’

45 “And he will answer, ‘I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.’

46 “And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life.”

April 5th 2015 Easter Sunday Rev. Ray Buchanan is Preaching on: Fleeing from Love

Scripture taken from Mark 16:1-8

1When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body.

2 Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb 3 and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”

4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. 5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.

6 “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. 7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’”

8 Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.

About Forest Road UMC

forest-road-umc-pic-copyAbout Forest Road UMC

The history of Forest Road United Methodist Church chronicles the Christian Faith and the faithful living of many men, women and children.

The structure of our church tells the story of the heartfelt faith that is our true history. Every window reveals our dependence on the Light of the World. Each brick shows the importance of each participant in our church community and our need for each other. The roof reminds us of the grace which protects and covers us. The spire points to the love of God which entered out midst through Christ’s early life. The cross proclaims the price of our freedom from sin, and its emptiness celebrates that the One who died for us could not be bound by death. His cross is empty as is His burial place. Every stair reminds us that the journey of faith both climbs and descends. Our doors declare that we embrace all people, those that come seeking knowledge, serving, questioning, celebrating ….

Like the children’s rhyme where you make a church building with your hands and open the doors and “see all the people”, when you open the doors and “see all the people” at Forest Road UMC, you’ll see the true church – a community of people who have experienced certainty and confusion, elation and pain, wonder and worry. All are welcome here. Most importantly, God as we know him in Jesus Christ, welcomes all.

“Open Hearts…

Open Minds…

Open Doors”
