In Pursuit of Happiness

WEST SAND LAKE – Are you happy? Everybody wants to be happy, but why don’t we feel happy? There are good reasons not to be happy, our community is devastated by suicide and the opioid crisis, and individuals are weakened by broken relationships and divisiveness. Is Life is meaningless?

Pastor Charlie’s new sermon series, The Power and Joy of Life, begins March 1st continues through April 5, all six Sundays in Lent, at 10:45am. We will explore life’s meaning and find answers in the words of Jesus Christ. Jesus tells simple but profound stories. People came to him to hear him speak because his message was appealing, relevant, and connecting.

Connect at Salem United Methodist Church, every Sunday, and let us pray and think together.
