Sunday  Service: 9:30 am

July 12,  2020

Baptism - an expression of God's grace, welcomed into the family of God and challenged to take action.

Has it ever occurred to you as you participated in a service of baptism that the vows of Christian baptism begin with the renunciation of evil? Followers of Christ are called to act and resist evil.

But what does evil look like?

Does a person in history come to mind when you picture evil?

Can a system be evil?

Truth is, evil is not as identifiable as some may believe.

Gather with Granger UMC, on-line or the parking lot, while we reflect on the "Freedom to...reject EVIL" Prepare by reading Ephesians 5:8-14

More on Baptism, go to Chuck Knows Church and watch the video on Baptism. 

Gather with us this Sunday at 9:30 in the parking lot or at your convenience on-line and engage God with your answer to a life-changing question.

More details about our Sunday Drive In church at at the bottom of this page. Our recorded online service can be found on our GATHER page from the above menu.

Small Group Study 


Starting Tuesday July 14, 2020


FTF or Online

I learned to recite the 23rd Psalm many years ago.

I later studied the words of David, a shepherd boy, and his trust in THE Shepherd.

I have recited the Psalm many times to offer comfort to grieving families.

Recently, my heart and soul were stirred by one phrase in the Psalm, "he restores my soul."

I am learning the importance of a restored soul and my responsibility in that restoration. Soul restoration takes intentional, disciplined steps each day. I invite you to consider your soul and determine if it needs restoring.

"Soul Reset" may lead to the restoration of your soul for such a time as this we are facing.

Sign up at office@grangerumc.org

Once you signup you will receive information to access all reading materials and videos needed for the study. Then you can join the online discussion, Face-To-Face Tuesday evening July 14 at 6:30 pm in our picnic pavilion. All are welcome to join the study to restore our souls. 

Sign up below, by clicking on the more information button below. 


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. 

Covid-19 UPDATE: United Methodist Church Guidelines for reopening the Church Building.



Chuck Knows Church is a video series that helps interpret complex subjects and issues in a fun, yet informative, way.  Each series features “Chuck” who helps us learn more about our church while inviting us to have deeper conversation with our pastor.

The ORIGINAL SERIES is all about the objects, symbols and terms we often hear in church. Take a couple of minutes each week and have some fun while you learn from Chuck. There are more than 100 episodes available on a variety of topics. Each episode is between 2 to 5 minutes long. You can find these videos at our GROW page.
