Take a Moment Prayer: Week of April 21

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

Gentle Shepherd, each day I listen for your voice and seek your presence for the reassurance of your love and for guidance through my day. I know that I can count on you to help me be the person that you created me to be. You have shown me your faithfulness over and over again. When I wander off the narrow path, you patiently protect me and call me back to you. I remember and pray for those who are suffering. Come to them, Gentle Shepherd, with your care and provide healing and comfort. I pray for those who do not know you as their Gentle Shepherd. Just as others have cared for me and led me to know you; show me how to care for and share the Good News with others who cross my path in need of finding you. With faith, I will seek to follow you today and everyday. 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.

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.
