As we are currently unable to gather for worship in-person, we will be livestreaming our services each Sunday. After the service is over, the video will be posted here on this page.
5th Sunday after Pentecost—July 5, 2020
Exodus 31: 12-17
We’re continuing in our Summertime Sabbath series with a look at one of the laws dealing with the Sabbath in the Old Testament. This week’s service also includes patriotic music, as it occurred the day after the 4th of July. It was also a communion Sunday, and the liturgy is included. Please note that Whitehouse UMC does not practice virtual or online communion.
The bulletin for the service can be found here.
4th Sunday after Pentecost—June 28, 2020
This week, we’re starting a three-week look at the idea of sabbath, God’s gift of a day of rest. To start out, we’re looking at what sabbath isn’t as a way of looking at the deeper truths about this gift.
The order of worship for this service can be found here.
3rd Sunday after Pentecost—June 21, 2020
2nd Sunday after Pentecost—June 14, 2020
Psalms 15 & 24
As our church—and congregations all over the country—start gathering together for worship again, we’re looking at two psalms that were used in ancient times as part of the ceremony of entering God’s Temple. Coming into God’s presence ought to remind us that our lives are supposed to be shaped by God’s grace.
The order of service can be found here.
Trinity Sunday (1st Sunday after Pentecost)—June 7, 2020
This week, we’re focusing on the wonderful truth that our God is known to us in Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, all sharing the essence of the one true God. Our Scripture passage takes us back to the creation of the universe, when the Three Persons of the Trinity worked together to bring about the world and everything in it.
The bulletin for this service can be found here.
It’s Pentecost! This last Sunday of Easter is the day we give thanks for the gift of the Holy Spirit. We hope this service helps you connect with the Spirit in your own life.

6th Sunday of Easter—May 17, 2020
This week, we’re talking about the Great Commission, Jesus’ final instructions to the disciples. What does it mean for us to share in the same commission that was given to them almost 2,000 years ago?
The expanded order of service for this week can be found here.
5th Sunday of Easter—May 10, 2020
Picking up right where we left off this week, we’re seeing what Jesus had to say to Peter during the post-resurrection appearance at the Sea of Galilee. Also, our service includes a special prayer litany for Mother’s Day, which you can find in the video after the sermon.

4th Sunday of Easter—May 3, 2020
Our service this week continues our look at Jesus’ post-resurrection appearances. Please note: during our live stream, we had several technical issues.

3rd Sunday of Easter - April 26, 2020
Today we’re looking at another one of the times Jesus appeared to his disciples after his resurrection. It’s the story of Thomas, who doubt and fears might speak to us just a bit during this season of quarantine.
An expanded order of worship can be found here.
2nd Sunday of Easter - April 19, 2020
We continue the Easter story by looking at what happened in the evening of the day Jesus rose from the dead. This service was pre-recorded; we’ll be back to our usual live stream format next week!

Good Friday - April 10, 2020
On Good Friday, we remember the death of Jesus Christ. Our service this year is a contemplative version of the Tenebrae (“Shadows” or “Darkness”) – you’ll hear the story of Jesus’ last hours, with time between passages for you to spend time thinking about what that story means for you and your life.
