Building An Authentic Christian Community

The Prayer of Our Family of Christ 3/4/2018

Lord, through your merciful and loving heart you came to us even while we were lost and mired in our sins and offered us your saving grace.  Lord of life, you who carried the cross for us, we pray for your peace, that you might take hold of all your broken people throughout the world and make of us one body in your image…

Reflective Reading 3/4/2018

Gospel! Gospel means that God totally surpises you – it means that God accepts you despite your unacceptability.  As Saint Paul says, “By grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God.”  (Ephesians 2:8) Gospel: you can’t earn it, expect it, or predict it.  Sometimes, when it comes, you don’t even recognize it for what it is: Gospel.



Contemporary praise music is key.  This service is led in worship by a band that includes keyboard, guitars, drums and vocalists.  Vocalists are led by Jazz singer Ashley Lemmler



Traditional service is a formal style of worship.  This service focuses on the rich liturgical heritage of our faith.  Inspirational musice is led by a majestic pipe organ and a choir.  Choir is led by Caleb Porter.




I believe the head as well as the heart, that is, it should be   intellectually stimulating as well as spiritually and emotionally moving. Worship at its best is a celebration of that which is true and beautiful in life and should inspire us to move from one place where we are in our lives to another place where we hear and sense God leading and directing us. Worship is intended to speak to people at the level which they personally can be moved and changed

Hi!!! I am Chris Smith, and I serve as the Youth Director for FUMC Hammond.  I have a passion for spending time with the youth of the church and teaching them about what it means to be a Christian in today’s complex and confusing world.  We talk about life, relationships, the importance of a healthy prayer life, and how to set an example for the people around us by living a life of love and grace.  We meet on Sundays from 4:00 PM to 7:00PM.
