Father’s Day at Walnut UMC

On Sunday, June 17, we celebrated those who “father” us with a sermon by Pastor Jimmy Nih, preceded by Bible trivia with red envelope prizes. Our children joined in a song and our anthem was a beautiful duet by Linda Wilford and Bruce Rosenberg.

John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, once said, “Bring me a worm that can comprehend a human being, and then I will show you a human being that can comprehend the Triune God!” Join us on Sunday as we celebrate Trinity Sunday – a day to reflect on the ways God works in our lives! We may not be able to fully understand the Triune God, but let’s give it a try!

We will also have a special time to remember our service-men and -women who’ve been lost in war on this Memorial Day Sunday. Join us!

Join us on Sunday, April 22nd as we finish our sermon series on Paul with “The Gospel According to St. Paul, Part 3″
