Sunday, September 27, Pastor Randall R. Hamill of the First United Methodist Church in Grove, gives the first sermon of a four week series entitled Philippians—Ode to Joy, Gratitude, and Peace. One of Paul’s most personal and affectionate letters, Philippians is a remarkable tribute to God’s amazing grace. Paul was in prison, but demonstrated freedom from fear, anxiety, or self-pity. His joy-filled heart issued forth in a beautiful hymn of praise to God, gratitude to loving friends, hope for the future, and words of encouragement to any who suffer hardship. Paul’s letter is also for you. Find hope and inspiration as we immerse ourselves in what God offers through Philippians— the Epistle of Joy.

 We extend an invitation to join the First United Methodist Church family for these encouraging and uplifting messages and worship.
