Cornwall UMC exists to bring people into a closer relationship with Christ, His family, and His world.
Join us as we worship Christ our Savior, study the Bible, and challenge each other to live daily in the power of the Holy Spirit. We invite you to worship with us on Sunday mornings. Even if you have a regular church home you attend on Sundays, we would love to have you visit one of our weekday Bible Studies or come to one of our annual dinners or events.

Aug. 5 “Come Away and Rest” *Mark 6:30-34, 53-56, 2 Samuel 7:1-5 This is a communion Sunday. Following a time when Jesus sent his disciples out to minister, Jesus invites his disciples to come away and rest. In 2 Samuel, David is established in his palace and he decides to build God a temple. One of the lessons from these two texts is that we all need a time to rest and be refreshed.
Aug 12 “Receiving God’s Blessings” John 6:1-9, *Ephesians 3:14-21 In the gospel, Philip represents the disciples as he questions how the large crowd could be fed. In the epistle, Paul is indicating how he prays for a blessing for the Ephesians. We will look at how often we are denied receiving a blessing from God because we are not open to the possibilities God will provide.
19 “Living out our Calling” *John 6:24-29, Ephesians 4:1-6 The crowd, which had been fed the day before seek out Jesus. The question arose, “What is the work of God.” Paul encourages the Ephesians to live according to their calling. Paul then lists what is involved in our calling.
26 “Difficult Conversations” . *Ephesians 4:25-5:2 Paul gives direct advice as to how to speak to others when a difficult conversation is needed. He gives advice regarding anger and falsehood.
September Sermon Themes
Sept. 2 ‘Bread which brings Life” *John 6:35, 41-51 This will be a communion Sunday. Jesus has a long conversation with hidden and double meaning. As Jesus has given bread for the crowd to eat, He speaks of when he will offer his life for us spiritually.

Lebanon County School Prayer Walk It is soon time for the Lebanon County School Prayer Walk! It will be held on Saturday, August 25. Prayer walking is onsite intercession. It is simply praying in the location that we expect God to bring forth His answers and His blessing. We will meet at the church in the Fellowship Hall at 9:45 A.M. for a brief time of prayer and instructions before we proceed to the Cornwall Elementary School. When we arrive at the school, we will stroll in small groups and silently pray for the upcoming school year, students, teachers and school staff. As we put our feet to our prayers, we will begin to pray with a huge, kingdom-size hope for our schools. Please join this prayer walk of protection and blessing over our schools. All ages can walk and pray in unity together. A sign-up sheet and further information will be available closer to the time of our walk. Any questions, see Karen Trovinger, Cathy Cox, Jess Kishbaugh, Louise Hostetter or Pat Yorty
