Sermon Texts and Resources

New Harmony UMC's preaching concentrates on exploration of God's Word and its application to all that we are and all that we do. Most weeks, the messages are drawn from the Revised Common Lectionary's selections for that Sunday.  The web site Bible Gateway is an easy source for the Bible texts in various translations, though we generally use the New International Version.  You can find that resource here:
We hope you find value in these messages.
