Rev. Rebecca Holland, M.Div. O.S.L.
Hello! My name is Rev. Rebecca and I serve as the solo pastor at Christ Community United Methodist Church. I believe that preaching is one of the most important aspects of my job. PWhile I have done my best to commit my sermons to writing here, please know that the art preaching is an oral act. When I prepare sermons, I often include images, video clips, music, props, and ways to engage physically with the message. I love to gather with our church family to worship and sing hymns to God; I absolutely love to share the Word of God with people.
