Sugar River is organized around its purpose (and process) to make new disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Specifically, Sugar River exists for families, friends, and neighbors to Connect, Grow, and Serve in our relationship with God and others.
Because Gary will be on his Renewal Leave, we are blessed to have a variety of Pastors and Guest Speakers share their thoughts and stories at Sugar River as we are challenged to live a life as faithful disciples.

True Peace That Jesus Taught
Text: Luke 12: 51-53
These words of Jesus are one of the hardest messages to understand in the Gospel. We all know that Jesus is the king of peace. One day, Jesus said “I came to bring division, not peace”, however. what kind of peace and division is He talking about? We sometimes have to endure division in order to achieve true peace. One of the first ministries that American missionaries did in Korea was the school for “girls”. Can you imagine what kind of division was made in a family there?
Guest Speaker: Pastor Han
Pastor Han serves at the Korean UMC in Madison. He and Gary traveled to Korea last fall, where Gary was able to meet his family.
