Who We Are
Where We Are
Come As You Are at Liberty United Methodist Church means being in a relaxed atmosphere where you can come casual or decide to wear your Sunday's best; worshipping God with your family, friends, neighbors and guests; being lifted up by songs of praise; being inspired, encouraged and challenged, and enjoying good food and fellowship after a dynamic church service.
Come As You Are is an invitation to come without having to "dress up" your life and heart. If you're in a good place in life, we'll rejoice with you. If you come feeling battered by life, we'll hug you and pray with you, especially when you are experiencing life challenges and burdens.
After all, Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are tired and carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. I'll give you rest." (Matthew 11:28) This is the Jesus we serve and the one we will introduce to you!

THE SEASON AFTER PENTECOST
The Season After Pentecost lasts from the day after Pentecost to the day before Advent. Thus, it began on June 1, 2020 and ends on November 28, 2020, the day before the first Sunday of Advent. The theme for the season is that the Church fulfills the Great Commission of making disciples of Jesus Christ, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching everyone to obey everything that Christ has commanded us to do! As for the colors of the season, in most churches, the decorations are green to symbolize the growth and life of the Church! The Season After Pentecost is essentially the part of the year that is left over after everything has been accounted for. The name of this season varies widely and therefore, it can be called Kingdom Tide, Dominion Tide, or Ordinary Time.
THE PARABLES OF JESUS – SUMMER SERMON SERIES
What is the kingdom of heaven? Where is it found? What does it take to get in? And when will it begin or, has it already begun? Jesus knew that His disciples and believers in every generation would have those questions. In the Gospels, Jesus uses parables - memorable, real-life stories with hidden meanings - to clearly define the kingdom, explain the rules for entering, and paint an unforgettable portrait of life inside the kingdom, as well as outside. The summer sermon series “Parables of Jesus” will show us how to live like we are in heaven while still on earth. As Christian believers, God expects nothing less. The parables are a beautiful picture for us as to what it truly looks like to be a sold out follower of Jesus, and so as we journey through some of these parables this summer, my hope and my prayer is that we would take the teachings of Jesus in these parables and faithfully and honestly look at our lives and ask ourselves if the desire of our hearts is to live as citizens of the heavenly kingdom as we see described in the parables of Jesus. Together as we study the words of Jesus this summer, let's allow the Gospel to change us from the inside out and let's allow our lives to be overcome by Christ’s unconditional love!
