Heart of the Matter - Easter Season

Sermon Series

“Heart of the Matter” moves through the weeks from Easter to Pentecost. Thank God Easter is an entire season, not just a day.  It may feel odd to have moved into the season of Easter, a season of celebration, in the midst of these difficult times. Perhaps it is an opportunity to really take into consideration that, at the heart of our Christian faith, we are called to live our lives in the belief that death is not the final word. This is why Christians are called “Easter People.” The tomb becomes the womb of new life. We cannot wait for everything to be alright to proclaim our Easter faith of resurrection hope. And so we, like so many Christians under duress since those first disciples, are invited to worship our everlasting God, and do what we can to help people continue to worship wherever they are.


We welcome all who want a closer relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  We see ourselves as a welcoming and open congregation and hope you feel that welcome as you enter our doors.  We seek growth through worship, prayer study and service.  Join us!


We are a congregation with deep Methodist roots in our community.  We have been here for over 125 years and plan to be here for years to come!  


We are called to be the hands and feet of Christ in our community.  We do this through the Kirkland Food Pantry, our Knitting Ministry, offering community fellowship events and assisting our neighbors who are in need.


We gather each Sunday at 10 am for worship.  It is a casual, blended service.  Come as you are.  All are welcome!

Listen to recordings of our services on YouTube!   


We are a United Methodist congregation serving the Kirkland community and surrounding area.  As disciples of Jesus Christ, we focus on worship, study and serving our community.
