Online Giving

COVID-19

We have never faced a situation like this before. We have never had a pandemic with the potential to exceed our medical resources. We will not be worshipping in person until it is safe to do so.  We will have worship available online, through Facebook Live, which will be recorded and available on YouTube.  Our Facebook page is facebook.com/Scottsdaleumc/

If you “like” our page, you will get notices of postings, including when we go “live.”  Additionally, if you go to our Facebook page on Sunday morning, you should see us go live at approximately 9:30 am.

Our office will be open for business Monday-Thursday by phone only.

During Holy Week, Pastor Ann is offering appointments for those who would like to pray with her–through her office window.  You can contact Pastor Ann through the church office or send her an email at .

We are also asking people to call each other. Stay in touch. And, if you can, volunteer to call some of our more isolated members. If you are willing, please call the office and we will give you a list of people to call.

Additionally, if you are a person at risk and you do not want to go to the grocery store, or if you need supplies and cannot find them, please call the church office. We have volunteers who will shop for you and leave your groceries at your front door.

Please join us in praying for those who are working on the front lines of this diseases, the doctors and nurses and first responders who are bringing care to the sick and vulnerable.  Also keep our leaders in prayer that they will be guided by wisdom and science to make wise decisions that will protect our community.

“Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together.”
-Hebrews 10:24-25

Lent Series: Reclaiming Sin-The Old Rugged Cross

02/26/2020-04/12/2020

Sin has fallen out of favor.  We do not talk of sin much anymore.  It feels judgmental and exclusionary.  But sin, even unnamed, has power over us, causes us pain, causes us illness, destroys relationships, keeps us from loving each other as God has called us to do. We need to reclaim sin to break its power over us.  We much recognize, acknowledge the sin in our lives, and ancient practice known as confession.  Only after confession, only after we recognize and acknowledge the ways in which we sin and fall short of God’s call on us and God’s purpose for us, only after confession can we be freed from sinful practices, and know the true power of God’s grace and redemption as followers of Jesus.
