"David Plays Music"

2 Samuel 16: 14-23

David was a musician. He wrote and played music for himself and others. In our story this week, David played music for Saul.

Does music make you feel better? What kind of music do you like?

October 2022 Sermon Series

Becoming Changemakers.jpg

“I want my life to matter!” Most of us know such a longing even if we have never put it into words. We yearn to be part of something larger than ourselves and make a positive difference somewhere, somehow. This is true for our individual as well as our collective selves. A unifying factor at FUMC is that our congregation strives to be a community of healing and wholeness. We are constantly asking ourselves how we can be more impactful in the vital work into which Jesus invites us.

Whatever your prayer needs, finding peace of mind provides a foundation of strength to face any situation. Your request is a sacred trust and is confidential.


In 2022 churches across the California-Nevada Conference are invited to pray for one another each day. The GO, SOW, GrOW Prayer Initiative invites us to pray for one of our local churches every day, and the new church starts each Sunday until December 31, 2022. Together we will align our prayers for God's vision of growth and abundance to manifest among us. To help guide you throughout the year, please click on the CALENDAR  button below for each day's prayer.
