The Survivor’s Creed  By Max Lucado

You’ll get through this.

It won’t be painless.

It won’t be quick.

But God will use this mess for good.

Don’t be foolish or naïve.

But don’t despair either.

With God’s help, you’ll get through this.


Max Lacado's Survivor's Creed is a timely message of encouragement for all of us.

Throughout the Old and New Testaments, we read of troubled times faced by God's people. If our ancestors in  the faith could speak today, they would calmly call out, "with God's help, you'll get through this."

Join us for the timely series, "God's People in a Troubled World" This week we hear about "People of God"

Gather with us this Sunday at 9:30 or at your convenience on-line and engage God with your answer to a life-changing question. DRIVE IN SERVICE THIS WEEK. Our recorded online service can be found on our GATHER page from the above menu. 

The first sermon in this series from Sunday, August 2, 2020 is below.

CommUNITY Allies: Coming Together While Apart


A VBS experience for the whole family

With a desire to nurture the faith of those children in your household, Granger UMC offers a unique learning experience during a very different time in our world.

Children absorb the world around them and are trying to make sense of what it happening. We want to assist families with difficult conversations by offering activities and stories that may help with the discomfort some may feel about topics of racism and injustices.

Though gathering in person may not be possible this year, it is possible to take steps to change the world for the better with the lessons available.

Granger UMC will supply materials for use in your home. Materials include on-line videos, games you can make at home and coloring pages to support the daily lessons. The lessons can be used over 5 consecutive days or at your convenience. You may want to keep the activities on hand for reminders of important learnings.

Register on-line and join others as we become “CommUNITY Allies”

All materials will be available to you for free. Packets are availalbe in our office for pick-up for those that pre-register and a limited number of kits are availalbe for delivery to your home when you pre-register. 

Drive in Worship Service Details




Once you arrive, tune your radio to 88.7 FM. We will NOT be having a live Zoom service, but if you can't make it to the "drive-in", the service will be available here.

The Order of Worship  is available for downloading that includes unison prayers and hymns for Sunday's service. If you are attending the drive-in service, you'll need to print the order of worship and bring it with you or download it to your smartphone. 

You will be expected to remain in your car and the church building will not be open, so no rest rooms.

Looking forward to new experiences in worship, we hope you'll join us at the "drive-in" or online!

 This service and past recorded worship services and sermons are on our GATHER page.
