Take a Moment Prayer: Week of Sep 24

Look for this prayer each week. Take time to pray it each day and know that your church family is saying this prayer too.

Holy are you, O God. I come before you today with praise and thanksgiving. Because of who you are and your faithfulness to me, I have no reason to doubt your plans for my future are rich with blessings. I confess, sometimes I get anxious when difficulties arise and throw a curve at me...making smooth, sweet sailing and comfortable times a bit rocky. You likely even hear thoughts that I try to hide from you, questioning your greatness and the promises you made to me and all who are faithful. But I will not...will not...succumb to the temptation to dispose of my faithfulness to you. I will hold even tighter to your strong mighty hand and declare my trust in you. For you are God, the one and only God of all Creation. Of this I am sure. Amen.


The Pastor's Pen - September 2023

I need to confess, writing the Pastor’s Pen every month is one of the hardest exercises for me. Coming up with an idea for the piece, and keeping it short is challenging. It was especially challenging this month as I am excitedly waiting for our vacation to begin next week. Before we leave, I have much to finish at the church and much to prepare for the trip.

 We are going to the beach, which is my favorite vacation spot.

Food Pantry (Updated Dec 7, 2022)

The first Sunday of every month is Food Pantry Sunday. Bring in your gift(s) of non-perishable food items, place them on the cart as you enter the west entrance,  and a volunteer delivers the food to a local food bank.

We thank everyone for their continued support of this ministry to our  community!

Just a reminder - all items should be   either dry, boxed, or in cans. Please do not bring in anything in a glass jar that could break and injure a recipient or our volunteers. 


Updated Mask Guideline (Updated Aug 29, 2022)

Covid guideline reminders. **We ask that if you know, or suspect, you have been exposed to someone who tested positive for Covid, or if you have a  temperature and/or you are feeling unwell, that you remain home and worship with us via Facebook.**

We ask that everyone attending worship please observe social distancing guidelines. You may enter and exit through the West Entrance, and exit only through the Washington Street door. Please do not stop on the outside steps to chat and possibly block those entering and exiting behind you. Also, remember to keep a clear path from the building to the sidewalk ramp as we enter and exit at the west entrance.  We need to keep that path clear to make it easier for those who have special needs to access the use of the ramp to their car.
