Experience God's Presence

Latest Sermons

In the beginning of Exodus, Pharaoh ordered the killing of Hebrew male children. God does not forget that, and judges Pharaoh for the evil that he brought to God’s people, about eighty years ago. This is the final plague that God brought to the Egyptians, and killed every first-born son in Egypt, including the first born of Pharaoh. But God showed mercy to the Israelites. God commanded Moses to remember this pass this story to the generations to come, so they know that God’s mercy and judgement, both are real. Today, a lot of Christians tend to think of Jesus a loving, submissive and merciful, son of God, and indeed that is who Jesus is. However, when Jesus returns, he will come to judge. Christians ought to balance the message of the cross; and proclaim God’s mercy without compromising God’s judgement.

Snakes represented Egyptian power. Aaron’s staff to turn into a snake is nothing less than a direct challenge to Pharaoh’s power. His magicians counter this attack by duplicating the feat, but their snakes are swallowed in the process. This sign and the ten plagues display one by one Pharaoh’s impotence, and that, God is the ultimate conqueror. This passage gives us a snapshot of the drama to unfold God’s final victory over Egyptians, and Jesus Christ crushing snake’s head in future.

Our Beliefs

United Methodists profess the historic Christian faith in God, incarnate in Jesus Christ for our salvation and ever at work in human history in the Holy Spirit. Living in a covenant of grace under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, we participate in the first fruits of God's coming reign and pray in hope for its full realization on earth as in heaven.

Our History

We began as a society under the Methodist Protestant Church. The society included the counties of Amelia, Nottoway, and Dinwiddie and was established in 1827 on land a few miles from its present location. The members quickly outgrew the building and in 1845 the new building was dedicated. The building was then moved in 1872.

Prayer Request

Please contact us at the church office to notify us of any prayer requests. Our father in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Lord, let the light of Jesus Christ, Your Son, be visible in the way I respond to all I encounter. For it is my faith and attitude that can help or hinder leading one to Christ to be saved. In Jesus’ name, Amen!!

Our Afghan friends are all expected to leave Fort Pickett by Spring, if not before. Such a wonderful job has been done with collection drives that the post has enough general items/clothes to last until our Afghan friends have left. Thank you for your generosity.
