In Acts 14:8-18 a man who can not walk is encouraged to pray and he is healed! The gathered people believed the apostles to be gods as they saw the man walk, but it was up to them to show that the power was in faith, prayer and God, not in the people who encouraged this prayer. Guest pastor, Rev. Charles Poole will welcome the community to Sedona United Methodist Church for his sermon titled, “God Gives Power!” This is Rev. Poole’s second week and he wowed the congregation on his first Sunday! He comes out of retirement to help SUMC while our own Pastor Fred recovers from surgery. He is an US Air Force veteran, worked during the civil rights movement in GA and then in CA but was raised in Phoenix attending Garfield UMC and has made “trips to Sedona for forever!” There are bound to be fish stories and delightful stories from his interesting life telling the world about Jesus.

No matter where you may find yourself in your faith journey—you are welcome at Sedona UMC! Sedona UMC is located at 110 Indian Cliffs Road, off the Back O’Beyond rotary on Route 179, in Sedona and worship starts at 9:30 each Sunday in the sanctuary. Childcare available.
