SOCIAL, NOT SPIRITUAL DISTANCE
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
Dear Church Family, In times of crisis, people of faith are drawn into community. It's where we find strength and comfort. In the midst of the COVID19 emergency, it perhaps feels cruel to be restricted from that means of grace. For the time being, all worship, Bible study, pastoral care, and classes will be moved to a virtual platform. In most cases we will be using Zoom video conferencing technology. If you don't already have the program, you may download it for free here.
Looking Ahead: Upcoming Worship
Did you miss our last service? No problem! Watch it here:
The Church Council, worship committee, and your ministers are working to creatively maintain a sense of spiritual connection and community even as we are restricted from gathering in person. Read this letter from Bishop Bickerton requesting that we do not gather for public worship even as we find new ways to "be the church."
If you usually share your offering on Sunday morning, please consider making your gift online here. Keeping our church finances consistent will help us to offer a strong faithful community through this challenging season.
We continue to meet (virtually) to support, plan, create, and learn with one another. For more information, contact group leaders or the church office.
(Extra) Ordinary Creative Expressions
Hosted by Rev. Melissa Hinnen
Tuesdays Noon-1:30 pm
Sunday School continues to meet via ZOOM!
For information about how your family can participate, contact Scott Lilly.
Church Council meets via zoom every Friday at 6:30. All members and friends are welcome.
The church season that follows Pentecost is often called “ordinary time.” But we are clearly living in extraordinary times. Please join us as we study Scriptures from the season after Pentecost and explore how your spirit interprets them through creative writing. No Bible knowledge or writing experience necessary. Feel free to drop in. Open to all. Invite a friend.
If you are feeling overwhelmed and want someone to offer a listening ear, please contact Linda Mandrachia who can connect you with a Stephen Minister.
