Here at FUMC, we are grateful to have a variety of gifted and articulate preachers. Our pastor, Lydia, only preaches 2-3 times per month because we believe in 'sharing the pulpit' and hearing from many voices -- young and old, male and female, from within our own church and from other churches. We believe that God speaks through all of us and no one person or perspective can fully speak God's Word on their own.

We are posting an audio version of most of our weekly sermons here -- usually within a couple weeks of when they were delivered. (so if there's a sermon you're looking for and it's not up yet, please let us know!) Remember, these sermons are intended to be heard within the context of our gathered worship services, and will undoubtedly lose something when listened to in isolation. That said, they are posted for your encouragement, education, and exhortation, so please receive them as such.
