Take a Moment Prayer: Week of October 24

Great God, that I may see your glory today. Thank you for glimpses of your holiness which leave me feeling blessed beyond measure. Help me not to fear what I may see as truth, including that which makes me feel uncomfortable or threatened. Help me to see opportunities to serve those in need. Empower me to serve with a positive attitude, even towards those whom I find challenging to include in my circle of welcome. Draw me close to your heart of love so as to fill me with this all-unconditional love for others. Open my eyes, God...so that I may see you everywhere and in every thing. Amen.

From Pastor Twyla's Desk - October 2021

 “What is highly valued among men is detestable in God’s sight.” (Luke 16:15)
This powerful Bible verse follows the parable of “The Shrewd Manager,”  which Jesus was telling his disciples. If we study the parable, we find that it asks us to consider the questions, what, or who, do we highly value? What are our  passions? What motivates us to do what we do?  Jesus concludes the parable by  saying, “No slave can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve  God and wealth.”

Guidelines for In-person Worship (Updated Mar 8, 2021)

On May 15, Governor Hogan lifted the mask mandate for the state of Maryland in conjunction with the recommendation put forth by the CDC on May 13. 

Effective immediately, you will not be required to wear a mask inside the building. That being said, anyone who would like to continue wearing a mask may voluntarily do so. For those who are not vaccinated, it is strongly encouraged, but not required, that you continue to wear a mask. We do ask that everyone respect each other’s personal choice, as we all have different circumstances that contribute to that decision.  

Additionally, we ask that everyone continue to practice common sense as it pertains to the health and safety of all who are in the building. Hand sanitization stands will continue to be around the building, for your use.

We do ask that anyone working with children in the building wear a mask if they are going to be within six (6) feet of the children for any length of time.

Thank you for your continued support to keep our church family safe.

Remember Philippians 2:4, "Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others," as we move forward.
