We often talk about the season of Lent as the opportunity for us to “walk with Jesus” as he makes his way to Golgotha to be crucified. Walking along the dusty road leading to Jerusalem, we spend extra time in prayer, scripture study, and self-reflection. We reflect on what his death means for us, individually, as well as for all God’s people. We ponder how to grow in our life of discipleship.
During this 2021 Lenten season, we will reflect on the racial divides that challenge us as Christians and as Christ’s Church. Through open and honest dialogue, this Lenten walk can lead us to a deeper understanding of our personal thoughts and attitudes around racial issues.
In this book, author Latasha Morrison shows how we can participate in the work of racial reconciliation. Along with prayers, discussion questions, and other resources to enhance group engagement, “Be the Bridge” presents a compelling vision of what it means for every follower of Jesus to become a bridge builder.

Interested in Church Membership…
Anyone interested in becoming a member of Harmony UMC is encouraged to let the pastor know and select a date for being received into church membership.
Membership in local congregations of The United Methodist Church comes with four different labels:
Baptized members are people who have been baptized by water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and who wish to be (or in the case of infants and children — are sponsored to be) members of a local congregation of the United Methodist Church.
Professing members are those who have professed their faith in Jesus Christ and desire to become a member of the United Methodist Church and unite with a particular congregation.
Affiliate members are professing members of another United Methodist Church who may be temporarily far from their home congregation and wish to connect with the life, ministry, and watch-care of a congregation nearer to where currently live.
Associate members are people who have been baptized by water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in another Christian denomination, wish to connect with a local United Methodist Church, but wish to retain their current denominational affiliation rather than become professing members of The United Methodist Church.
