This Sunday

This Sunday – 10/7/18 – LOCATION AND TIME CHANGE

Due to continued occupancy permit delays, this Sunday we are meeting at Westover Baptist Church (1125 Patrick Reed Dr.) at 4:30pm

I am excited to gather as a church family to exalt our God and worship him together!

I encourage you to listen to the songs we’ll be singing. Make them the soundtrack of your home on Sunday morning so you come ready to sing! And as you drive to our new location, use it as an opportunity to pray that God would work powerfully in our midst.

Eric is going to take a break from our Proverbs series in order to preach from Matthew 16:13-20 and talk about the importance and significance of the church.

Hope to see you there!

Order of service:

Call to worship – Isaiah 40:28-31
– A Mighty Fortress is Our God
– Lord of Hosts (Psalm 46)
– I Will Wait for You (Psalm 130)
– His Mercy Is More

Song of Consecration – Be Thou My Vision
– Cornerstone
– Revive Us Again



Unfortunately, due to continued occupancy permit issues, we will NOT be gathering at Arlington United Methodist as a church family. We are working hard to resolve these issues with the county and hopefully will have an answer by next week.

The good news is that we WILL gather as a church on Sunday for our members meeting (non-members are welcome to attend). We will meet at Westover Baptist Church (1125 Patrick Henry Dr, Arlington, VA 22205) from 5-6pm. A parent co-op is available for child care. We will take this time to discuss our building situation, sing and pray, and cover other important issues for our church.

Please make it a priority to attend if at all possible!

Sunday Service CANCELLED for tomorrow

Unfortunately, our Sunday service tomorrow is CANCELLED.

This past week we were made aware by the county of some safety concerns and permit issues for our building that have be taken care of before we can resume meeting at AUMC. Our hope is to get these resolved this week.

We encourage you to visit other churches in the area as we scatter on the Lord’s day!

This Sunday – September 16th, 2018

“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.”
Psalm 103:1-2

Join us as we gather to bless the Lord and forget not all his benefits. We may have forgotten his goodness, or been tempted to doubt his mercy. But it has not changed. God’s promise is that his favor towards us will never end. We are forever united with his Son, Jesus Christ. That is good news for us to celebrate!

I will lead our times of singing and we will welcome Curt Allen, pastor at Solid Rock Church, as he preaches from God’s word.

As you prepare for our gathering, you can listen to the songs we’ll be singing on Spotify.

I encourage you to show up a little early to grab some coffee and donuts and be ready for our call to worship.

Our lives were created to worship, and we find our highest calling and fulfillment as we worship the one true God. Join us as we corporately ‘ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name.’

We will be learning a new song, I Will Wait For You, based upon Psalm 130, and Eric will continue our series in the books of Proverbs.

Oh sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Sing to the Lord, bless his name;
tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!
For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before him;
strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
Psalm 96:1-6

There is a reason that we sing and worship the Lord each week. Psalm 96 tells us, “For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised.”

He is the one true God, worthy to be adored and obeyed. He is worthy to be honored and feared.

Each week we come as sinners who have no right to approach him. Yet we come with confidence through the blood of Jesus. God invites us to experience the blessing of ascribing to him the glory due his name.

To help us prepare, here is a Spotify playlist of the songs we’ll be singing.

Order of service:

Call to worship
– Praise to the Lord the Almighty
– Strong God

Prayer of lament

“A great multitude…crying out in a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
Revelation 7:10

Each Sunday, we join the great multitude in heaven to declare that salvation belongs to our God. There is no other name by which we can be saved except the name of Jesus. He is our King, our Redeemer, and our Hope.

This Sunday we will celebrate these truths together through song, studying God’s word, and taking communion.

As you prepare to come, you can listen to the songs we’ll be singing on this Spotify playlist.

“The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.
He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
he hears their cry and saves them.”
Psalm 145:18-19

We gather each Sunday with the expectation that God is going to meet us. In fact, he is the one who has issued the invitation!

As we are reminded in the verse above, as we call upon him, he fulfills our desires, he hears our cries, and he promises to save. What a promise!

To help you prepare as we gather, here is a Spotify playlist of the songs we’ll be singing, including a new song, His Mercy is More.
