Take a Moment Prayer: Week of Dec 5 - 2nd Week in Advent

Gracious God, I come before you today with a longing to please you with all that I say and do. Somehow, it seems I find myself...many times without even thinking...messing up. Forgive me merciful God. I am overwhelmed by your gift of unconditional love for me...my imperfections and all...that washes away all my sin and draws me close to your glorious presence. During this Christmas season, I am reminded that this unimaginable love came to touch earth through a baby...Your only Son, Jesus. I look into the manger and I cannot dismiss the sacrifice made to unveil the depth of Your love for us. And so, I lift my heart in worship and thanksgiving to You for this incredible gift. May my loving of others be evidence that your love fills me to overflowing, and seeks to embrace all of Your holy creation...today, tomorrow and everyday. Amen.

From Pastor Twyla's Desk - November 2021

Tis the season of Thanksgiving. Although we should express our gratitude to God  year-round; we place more emphasis on it at this time of year because we have a special day on the calendar called Thanksgiving. Many of us will gather with family and friends for a delicious meal…maybe play some games or watch football…or maybe nap after gorging ourselves with turkey, known to be full of tryptophan. Ah…what a delightful day!

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.
