Our Heritage

Our Lighthouse ~ Fells United Methodist Church has been known as the "Lighthouse on the Hill" since the congregation was founded in 1785.  God's beacon of light on this hill has not dimmed in our congregation even though our area has witnessed many dramatic changes in the last 232 years.

               

Our "Lighthouse on the Hill" is where we worship, pray, and open our hearts to God's presence in our lives.  But our church is also where we open our doors to the needs of our community:  where hungry come for food; scouts and community groups come to gather; and citizens of our township come to vote.  Our church is both a house of prayer and a center of hospitality:  where we bring God's light to the people of our area.

               

God's light is constant and sure.  He has not failed us in the past two centuries.  He will light our way in the years to come.

Megan’s Message

April is a busy month for our churches and for our communities. World Autism Awareness Day is April 2 each year and we are encouraged to light our world blue by wearing that color. I wear blue for the individuals in my life who have autism or have a loved one with autism. Autism is a developmental disability, predominant in males; autism affects 1 in 59 (according to a 2018 CDC study).

 

This April we will light our world blue by recognizing the needs of those around us and by showing our support and love for our community. It doesn't take much for us to show God's love to one another by showing kindness and patience to everyone.

 

As we continue on in this month, it will be a month that we recognize autism awareness but it is also a time that we recognize the life of our church. Easter Sunday becomes the culmination of Lent and we celebrate all of the teachings and stories that have been shared in our scripture passages with the resurrection story. We celebrate that Christ is alive and has been raised for us, each of us. Easter is about joy and hope, knowing that we are resurrection people. The story did not end with death but it begins with new life. May you remember the life that you have been given through Jesus Christ and celebrate that we are Easter people who have been born of the Spirit.

This April is about the diversity of our world, about meeting the needs of one another and most of all remembering that our spiritual needs are met because of our faith in the Easter Story.

    

May your April be filled with joy and hope!

 

                          Blessings, Rev. Megan
