The "Cross Words" of Jesus
A New Sermon Series at Almena UMC
As Jesus hung on the cross he continued to teach those who would listen; how to pray and how to live. Those final statements, traditionally called “The Seven Last Words of Christ”, were passed on by those gathered at the foot of the cross.
Join us for a 6 week Lenten series as we LISTEN and make connections to “The Cross Words of Jesus”.

What to Expect
We know coming to a new church can be a little scary, so we've put together a page of What to Expect.
Rethink Church is a denomination wide advertising campaign launched to offer a sweeping invitation for both unchurched and churched people to become more outwardly focused and engaged in the world. Visit the new Web site that links visitors with the opportunity to explore church as both within and without our church walls.
