May Marks our “ A Day of New Beginnings”.  Easter marches into Pentecost with new opportunities to grow in Christ.  Cheatham Memorial United Methodist Church invites you to join us for worship at 10:00 AM each Sunday.  Click Here to learn more about our active and loving church family. Make church worship and service a part of your new beginning. 

“Christ is alive, and goes before us
to show and share what love can do.
This is a day of new beginnings;
our God is making all things new.”

-Brian Wren 

(This is a Day… UM Hymnal 383)

 May 7:  4th Sunday of Easter

John 10:1-10  “Hey Porter!”  This rich parable has a special meaning to the resurrected Church.  Where are you in this story?  I want to be the gatekeeper. 


 May 14: 5th Sunday of Easter Mother’s Day

John 14:1-14  “Which Way’s What” Followership is the first step in leadership and discipleship.  What way do we go and how do we know?  This is a lesson in listening to the Holy Spirit. 


 May 21:

1 Peter 3:13-22  “Free to Obey” Obedience isn’t giving in and being tied down.  There is great freedom in knowing Christ through obedience. 


 May 28:   Conference Sunday, Confirmation Sunday

Acts 1:1-11  “Lifted to life” Jesus was lifted to his rightful place-he did not jump up there.  In Christ we are lifted up.  Not by our own strength, but the very hand of God’s grace.  This marks a new year for us to minister together!





One thought on “New Beginnings: May 2017 Sermon Series

  1. Pastor Alan,
    At times I wonder if you are aware what a wonderful, special compassionate heart is beating within you?
    I’ve have never come upon a person like you possessing so vibrant a heart directed towards the human spiritelfish.
    You exude an extraordinary gift that’s willing unselfishly to share your heart with all the loving members of our church.
    Today Lee and I learned although
    The bone cancer had expanded
    exponentialy to 80% it appears
    God has stepped up and said:
    “Enough!” And with his blessing has shone us proof our prayers and medicine are working!
    That news this morning was a big surprise we weren’t ever expecting.
    From the very beginning I placed my life
    In his hands. Whatever he wished for
    my future, I accept.
    The one thing he has not made clear to me as yet is.. what do you want me to do with the rest of my life? What is it he plan you have for me?
    I’m just writing to you because I wanted you to know how appreciated you are for the very special gifted person you
    are in case it hasn’t occurred to you💓

    Thank you for all you do and for the membership when there really are no words to adequately express the uplifting joy and love you bring to us
    Without fail every single day.
    God Bless you and keep you safe always and forever…

    Brie Garber ❤️
