Worship with Us on YouTube Sunday

On Sunday, March 29, Pastor Clay Horton continues our Lent series, “Gospel of the Unseen.” Making our way through the Gospel of Luke, the story of the blind beggar reminds us that when we are feeling down and out, the first step is to cry out to Jesus for mercy. Mercy might look different for each one of us, but the beggar’s persistent cry for mercy resonates with us during this time of social distancing and isolation.

The easiest way to connect to the worship service playlist on the Vista Ridge UMC YouTube page is by using this direct link on Sunday. Make sure to watch the YouTube playlist so the songs, prayers, and sermon will all be in order.

Download the companion study guide below featuring daily scripture and devotions. The complete Lenten guide and sermons to date are available here. 

We’d also love to hear from you! Comment on the videos and share the videos. If you have thoughts, questions, or ways we can make this more meaningful, please email Pastor Clay, [email protected].

If for some reason the direct link doesn’t work or more options are needed to watch the service, follow the instructions below.
