A new series of messages will begin on May 15, 2016 titled “Philippians.” Pastor Chris Stahlman (you can call him PC) interjects many of his messages with enhancements, such as the time we watched someone shoot a bow and arrow (safely) across the front of the church in order to clarify a point!  (not the point on the arrow!).  A dynamic speaker, PC’s love for God comes through loud and clear and one takes home special memories each Sunday that help us cope with the life that is thrown at us the following week.  We encourage people of our community to come out and find this fortification for your own life.  You will also meet some wonderful new friends, and find a path to peace.  SWUMC has many opportunities for service and philanthropy.
