A Message from Pastor Young
Greetings Family and Friends of Cascade,
Thank you for visiting our website. If you are a member, we hope this is a smooth and pleasant experience for seeking information. If by chance you are a visiting guest, searching for a church home to worship and serve, you have come to the right place! You will discover that Cascade United Methodist Church is an amazing, spirit-filled church where the congregation loves God and loves each other. Our love for God and one another is expressed in the many offerings of worship and service we commit to weekly. We are a multi-generational congregation with a membership ranging in age from infants to the upper nineties. We believe that whatever your unique passion is, we offer you the opportunity to experience it during some point in the ministry we do at Cascade UMC.
Our overall mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We are in worship on Sundays at 8:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. Our multiple choirs sing an awesome variety of music. There is definitely something for everyone’s spiritual enjoyment. We offer hymns, anthems, spirituals, traditional gospel songs, and contemporary gospel music for our youth and young adult members. While each service has its unique flavor, we offer Christ and opportunities to go deeper in your walk with God each time we meet. Sunday School classes for children, youth and adults are in session at 10:00 a.m.--between services. Another weekly opportunity to grow your faith is in Wednesday Night Bible Study at 7:00 p.m. We have a great time, filled with passion, as we learn and discuss books in the Holy Bible. Also, for members and friends who may be out of town and still desire to worship with the Cascade family, we offer live streaming each Sunday at 11:15 a.m.
Cascade’s ministries are grouped in five divisions: Nurture, Outreach, Witness, Worship and Young Peoples. I tell you, God has an amazing purpose for every life and there is a place for everyone to experience His blessings through service at Cascade. We encourage all members to examine themselves and determine what talents they have, and then use those gifts to help others. We serve God by loving, training and serving children, teaching God’s principles, being a friend to the elderly, volunteering, feeding the homeless, donating clothes, visiting the sick, and always giving comfort and hope to those who are grieving. Through ministry and our presence, we demonstrate that we are living for God and serving His purposes--not our own.
As the Senior Pastor of Cascade, I am proud to lead and serve God with this amazing church family, this great body of “Kingdom Builders.” We certainly do thank you if you are already counted in that number; and if you are not, we invite you to become a part of our family and find your place to shine.
In His Service,
Pastor Lawrence L. Young
