Sermon Series

The Marvell United Methodist Church is pleased to announce that Bishop Gary Mueller will be preaching in the Sunday morning worship service on September 29.  Worship at Marvell UMC is always spirited, and it promises to be even more meaningful with our episcopal leader providing the message.  The memorial dedication will also be an auspicious occasion that you won't want to miss.  Bishop  Mueller will be participating in the dedication of the Elaine Massacre Memorial at the Phillips County Courthouse Park at 2 p.m.  There will be a reception at the courthouse following the commitment of the memorial.  We are excited to be able to participate in this special day and hope you are making plans to attend morning worship and the dedication.

Being an apostle and a missionary is grueling, dangerous work in first-century Roman Empire. Rome is built on citizens compliance with the religious, social, and political structure that reinforce the power of the empire, and that of Caesar. Paul often finds himself at odds with Rome and with orthodox Jews. He spends time in jail accused of various crimes against the state. The letter to the church at Philippi is written during one of these times of imprisonment. The letter is not written to respond to a crisis in the church but to express his affection and appreciation to the believers. Despite his living conditions, Paul expresses joy in his work and offers encouragement to the church. Join us as we look at Paul's letter from a Roman Prison.
