Autumn has arrived … or it is arriving. One of our discerned visions for our church from the past year is to “Foster an Attitude of Unceasing, Joyful Worship”. We listed as “Goal #1” under that vision our desire to “Grow our awareness of worship.” JOY doesn’t begin with smiles and happy faces; it begins with awareness. To be aware of one’s self and one’s environment and to be fully present to both – that is a work that is unceasing; and it can bring us to “joy” in the deepest sense of the word. Our worship at First UMC Burlington attempts to find the balance between the power of ancient liturgies and the realities of life in the 21st century. The Bible is our backdrop, the living canvass on which we strive to paint the pictures and stories of our lives. Jesus taught some of the most complex spiritual lessons with the simplest of stories. And what could be more simple than the command to love our neighbor? We invite you to join us for worship Sunday mornings at 9:45. Check out our Facebook Page and, for info regarding what’s going in the parish, go to our First UMC Burlington Community and ask to join – the group and the discussion.
One More Thing … Parking! Parking is available free on Sunday mornings at the parking garage directly across South Winooski Avenue from our church. You can enter either on Cherry or Bank Streets!
