Due to the unprecedented spike in Covid-19 transmission across our community, we WILL NOT be having in-person, indoor worship services this Sunday. Instead, there will be one ONLINE service broadcast on our Vision of Hope United Methodist Church Facebook page at 10:30 am.  Joe Ruoto and Jimmy Overton will share inspiring contemporary and gospel tunes. Pastor David continues the sermon series “Reach for the High-Hanging Fruit!” Please join us for this special time of praise!


Most folk are satisfied to journey through life filling the proverbial basket of their character with low-hanging fruit of self-indulgence.  However, such fruit seldom satisfies and rots all too quickly.  Thankfully, there is higher, more enduring fruit to strive for – fruit of the Spirit – nine godly virtues that bring meaning and purpose to everyday living.  Over these upcoming Sundays of winter we are going to dig into Galatians 5:22-23 and discover what it means to reach for this high-hanging fruit!
