A Blue Christmas Worship Service
Wednesday, December 20, 2017
Soup Supper – 6:00 pm
Worship Service – 6:30 pm
An evening of fellowship, support, and prayer for those who grieve during the holidays
Around this time, the holidays can become difficult in the midst of the joys of the season. Some are dealing with the death of a loved one, coping with the loss of a job, facing life after divorce or separation, living without family or living with cancer or some other disease. These situations can put a question mark over our future and make us feel completely alone. And they can make parties and typically fun events painful and difficult to attend.
To help with one’s sense of loss, hurt, and pain, which can be overwhelming at this time of year, we want to offer a Blue Christmas Worship Service. Feeling ‘blue’ is an expression that attempts to describe the sadness in one’s life. Our worship service will be a way for people to gather together and know that they are not alone in their journey through difficult times. Join us as we share a simple soup dinner and support one another in worship and prayer! If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Gary or Pastor Gabe at 266-7174.

The Holy Spirit is definitely alive at Morton UMC!!! From the beautiful music of the choir to the heart-felt sermons, I feel close to the Spirit of the Lord!
My mom was First Christian Disciples of Christ and my dad was Presbyterian when they married and moved to Morton a year later. They weren’t Catholic or AC and we lived on Glen Street behind the old church …. so I became Methodist. Haha!
Raising our family here has been a lot of fun; to watch them be involved and be accepted by our church family at every stage has been a blessing! It’s a good Bible-preaching church, not only on Sundays but with many opportunities for study and fellowship throughout the week.
Morton Methodist church is my home away from home. I have deep roots here and it’s one thing I don’t mind boasting about because I am proud of our church and I feel the love of Christ within it’s walls and people.
I was searching for a place that would encourage my family’s faith journey. We have found that at Morton United Methodist Church!
I came because I was invited; I stayed because I found what I was looking for!
There are many wonderful things about Morton United Methodist Church but my favorite is the paper prayer chain the congregation has made, which hangs on the Common Room wall. The goal is to have it long enough to go around the inside of the common area. I often see the prayer chain and think of others who need my prayers and positive thoughts to help carry them through. Doing this lifts my spirits and allows me to put my troubles on the back burner for a little bit, as I am reminded that our Lo…
My dad (John Lindquist) grew up in the United Methodist church in Kansas and my mom (Elaine Lindquist) was raised Presbyterian in Colorado. When they were transferred by Caterpillar to Peoria, they fell in love with the Morton United Methodist Church–their home away from home. Many of the people they met in church during that time continue to be their dearest friends today. My brother, John, and I have many fond memories, too, from growing up in such a supportive church community. We will…
My husband and I attended the Morton Methodist Church for two years or so when they were meeting at the downtown Civic Building. When the church was finished we took the big step and were in one of the first groups to join in April 1952, which basically turned our lives around, and we have been soblessed to be part of a fellowship of believers. I have had 61 years of spiritual growth and I thank those who helped me along the way. Blessings
What I love about our Morton United Methodist Church is the diversity that is offered. We have three styles of worship and multiple programs that cover ALL age groups. Everyone is encouraged to experience programs that meet their needs and that will work into their daily spiritual walk.
