Take a Moment Prayer: Week of May 26

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

God, Holy Spirit, Jesus...I come before you in awe in these quiet moments. Understanding you as the Holy Trinity...the Three In One, is challenging. Yet the mystery of the Trinity directs my thoughts to the reality that you are greater than anything I could possibly imagine.  I know you best through Jesus because he lived in physical form on this earth. Through his life, death and resurrection you have revealed your deep, personal and powerful love for everyone. Thank you for this revelation of who you are. You are amazing, great Three In One! Bind me to you. Wash away all that would keep me from intimacy with you. Empower me with your grace, love, and compassion to serve as your instrument to the hurting and the lost. I will never stop seeking you...even though there will always be things about you that will remain a mystery to me while I live in this lifetime. Amen.

The Pastor's Pen - January 2024

We should come away from Christmas reminded that Jesus came into this world so that things could be different. He did not come so that we could have a holiday including time off from work or school, presents, cookies, lots of other food and time with friends and family. The story of Jesus does not end at the stable. Jesus grows up and becomes our teacher and example for how God calls us to live.

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.
