Yes, Spring has arrived and so have the weeds, onions and other unwanted pests. Please consider helping with our gardens in preparation for Easter and Mother’s Day.  Bring your gloves and any other tools you may want to use.

Prayer Starter: God, I want to experience Your power in my thought life. I choose to focus on Your goodness and Your love for me. No matter what negative thought comes my way, I know that You are so much bigger and better.


Free Simulcast viewing of “The Insanity of God” Sunday March 26 @ 6:00 p.m.

movie night

“The Insanity of God” is the true story of missionaries Nik and Ruth Ripken.  After the death of their son, this ordinary couple journeys into the depths of the persecuted church, asking the question – IS JESUS WORTH IT?

How does faith survive, let alone flourish in the places of the world that are overcome with the darkness of sin, despair and hopelessness?  Join the Ripkens as they tell the story of being taught by believers in persecution “how to follow Jesus, how to love Jesus, and how to walk with Him day by day even when it doesn’t make sense.”

This  90 minute film is based on the best-selling book “The Insanity of God,” (BH Publishing) and is released in association with the International Mission Board (IMB).

Come to the Scottsburg United Methodist Church, 615 South Honeyrun Parkway, on March 26th at 6:00 p.m. to witness the Ripken’s tell their amazing true story!

Immediately following the movie, International Mission Board President David Platt will host a Q&A with the Ripken’s answering many of those pressing questions we’re dying to know!

Admission is free and no advance registration needed!
