A Message from Dr. Gardner, Senior Pastor
Old Mission Church is all about loving God and loving people. All people. Progressive and Traditional people. Straight and LGBTQI people.
We may not agree on all things, but we agree on that. So we will keep doing that, welcoming, baptizing, and serving with all who follow Jesus.
That’s the bottom line. The actions of the recent United Methodist Church called General Conference to continue not to allow same-sex marriage and ordination of self-avowed gay or lesbian persons as pastors does not change that. At Old Mission we will keep loving and welcoming and serving with all people.
You are invited to read a Digest
of what happened (and did not happen) at the recently concluded called General Conference and some Discussion Questions
to use in our classes and groups in discussing and reflecting on our Old Mission Church purpose, "Loving God
and Loving People.” “We love because God first loved us.” (I John 4:19)
Current and Upcoming Sermons
"Beauty for Ashes" Lenten Series begins March 10.
Our worship series leading up to Easter begins on Ash Wednesday, and focuses on the promise from Isaiah 61:3 that God brings ”beauty for ashes, gladness for tears and a spirit of praise instead of a downcast spirit.” Week after week, we will see how Jesus brought this promise to fulfillment from the very beginning of his ministry to ordinary people like us, and we will claim his healing power for today. Join us for “Beauty for Ashes” starting March 6 on Ash Wednesday and every Sunday of Lent.
