Take a Moment Prayer: Week of July 21

God of Peace, In you I find my strength and focus  for the facing of each today. But, some days, I know I have so much I must do...or simply want to do...that I don't take time to rest in your presence where I would find refreshment for my soul. Help me now to hear your voice calling to me to come with you and rest for a while. Take away any unnecessary urgency I feel to accomplish things on my list of to-do's without spending  time with you. In the time I spend with you, hear my prayers for others in need and for the church. Hear my requests for forgiveness, wisdom and guidance; and help me to listen for your answers. Fill the quiet spaces in my thoughts with the holiness of your presence. Your love pours over me and my whole being is refreshed as I sit with you. Thank you, God, for these moments of rest with you. Amen.       

The Pastor's Pen - July 2024

Bird watching has become a favorite pastime for me and Don. We have great seats to watch the birds that call our yard home. We have had wrens and chickadees build nests in the front yard; and robins, mockingbirds, blue jays and house sparrows make nests in the backyard. I have longed for bluebirds to make our yard home, but a house sparrow with persistence, has claimed the bluebird house as his own.

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.

Junior Church is held in the Fellowship Hall on the 4th Sunday of each month and is open to those in Kindergarten through Grade 6.
