Worship Here

Step by step, one step at a time. That’s how we go through life. During the season of Lent we are looking prayerfully and carefully at Richard Rohr’s book: Breathing Under Water – Spirituality and the Twelve Steps”. Our pastors are leading discussion sessions inthe Reid Booth Room – Mark leads a Monday evening session at 7 PM and Rachel leads a Tuesday noon session. And on Tuesday evenings at 9, Mark leads a Facebook Live session at 9 PM which is available at First UMC Burlington Community on Facebook. Twelve-Steppers call it “Recovery”; Christian theologians call it “Salvation”. AA calls it “Sobriety”; theologians call it “Transformation”. Join us – in person or on line as we learn what it means to “Breathe Under Water”.

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.
