Revelation Series Image 3


     On April 28, 2019 we will begin a sermon series on the book of Revelation at Trinity United Methodist Church located at 2303 Jones Blvd. Murfreesboro, Tennessee 37129.   I decided to do a series of sermons (six sermons) from the book of revelation based on the lectionary readings for those six Sundays.   This will be a fun and inspiring time and we need everyone to get the word out about this series and invite folks to attend with them during this time.  So begin now thinking of folks you would like to invite and get these six Sundays on your calendars.  You will find the Sunday’s, Sermons, and Scripture below:

April 28: “The Alpha And The Omega” Revelation 1:4-8
May 5, 2019: “Worthy Is The Slaughtered Lamb” Revelation 5:11-14
May 12, 2019: “God Will Wipe Away Every Tear” Revelation 7:9-17
May 19, 2019: “See I Am Making All Things New!” Revelation 21:1-6
May 26, 2019: “The City Of Humanity – The City Of God” Revelation 21:10-14, 22-23, 27
June 2, 2019: “One Day I Have Got To Tell Him About God” Revelation 22:16-17, 20

      Plan now to attend this special series and bring everyone within your area of influence to attend with you.  We will work our way through John’s Revelation while on the Island of Patmos.  Worship experience times are 8:15 AM and 10:45 AM.


He is Risen! Hallelujah!

He Is Risen


     In 2012 Melisa and I made our last pilgrimage to the Holyland and while there visited the garden tomb. For the fifth time since 1994 I entered the borrowed tomb and discovered it to be EMPTY!!!
I know how the story ends. Death and destruction do not win. Christ arose!
I want to invite you to join us Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019 at Trinity United Methodist Church, 2303 Jones Blvd. Murfreesboro, Tennessee, as we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord. We will begin with a Sunrise worship experience at 6:30 AM with a message delivered by Leslie Poole Trail, followed by a potluck fellowship breakfast. We will then have our 8:15 AM and 10:45 AM worship experiences where I will preach a message titled “Can’t You See?” based on John 20:1-18.
Plan now to be with us for the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ! Bring someone with you!


Good Friday Tenebrae Worship Experience

     Join us for a Good Friday Tenebrae worship experience on April 19th at 6:30 PM at Trinity United Methodist Church located at 2303 Jones Blvd. Murfreesboro, Tennessee 37129.

      The word “tenebrae” comes from the Latin meaning “darkness.” The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Good Friday service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the triumphant Palm Sunday entry through Jesus’ burial.

      This increasing darkness symbolizes the approaching darkness of Jesus’ death and of hopelessness in the world without God. The service concludes in darkness, sometimes with a final candle, the Christ candle, carried out of the sanctuary, symbolizing the death of Jesus. A loud noise may also sound symbolizing the closing of Jesus’ tomb. The worshipers then leave in silence to ponder the impact of Christ’s death and await the coming Resurrection.

Plan now to attend this special Holy Week worship experience.  Invite someone to come experience this with you!

****   There will be a nursery provided
