Welcome to Union United Methodist Church's Webpage. Please come and worship God with us during the Informal or Traditional Services.  We look forward to meeting you.

Appearing in Union United Methodist Church's May 2015 Newsletter:

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and discern what God’s will is – his good and perfect will.” Romans 12:2

                        “Transformed by the renewing of your mind.” 

    I have always been intrigued by those words. The more I read them, the more I am challenged, yet they also give me a measure of comfort and a sense of direction. God did not call us to be like everyone else. He has not saved us and set us apart only to see us blend in with the rest of the crowd. Transforming is certainly more difficult than conforming, but the reward is a better and happier life – a life more pleasing to God. And the good news is, God does not expect us to do it alone. God’s renewing Spirit is always with us and we have other Christians to journey along side us.

                        “Transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

    We have a choice in what we allow in our thoughts. We have a choice in what we watch on our televisions and listen to on our radios. We have choices in the movies we watch, the gossip we listen to or spread, the lies we tell and the truths we deny. I suppose you could say that we are always being transformed, the question is, are we being transformed by God? God’s word tells us that if we are transformed by Him we will be able to test and see what God’s will for us is, and that is something we should all be striving to achieve. That is the very least we can do, considering what God has done for us.

    Titus 3:5-7 tells us, “He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.”

    God did not lightly drip His Spirit upon us. He poured it out lavishly through Jesus Christ. He poured it abundantly – fully – completely! Therein lies the power of Godly transformation. As individual lives are transformed, so is the world – a world that so needs the eternal hope that we have in Jesus. Change your life – change the world – glorify God.

        Happy Transformation,

                 Pastor Tim
