We seek to be a beloved community of the peoples of God, richly blessed with all the diversity and difference God has given the human family.  We welcome, embrace, and affirm all God’s peoples and strive to be the one body that Jesus Christ calls us to be.  You – yes, you – are warmly welcome here.

Worship Sunday, October 18, 2020

For the next two weeks, we will only be offering online and radio worship. Hopefully, once the new technology in our HVAC system is installed, and local Covid numbers begin to decline, we will offer in-person worship in the Fellowship Hall at 10:00 am starting Sunday, November 1, All Saints Sunday. Please pray for our church leaders as they seek to find creative ways to worship that are both safe and faithful.

This Sunday we continue our fall worship series, The Gift of Faith as we look at BLESS–what does it mean to be blessed? Reading from Genesis 12, we explore the blessing of Abram and how he lived that blessing out. Also this Sunday and for the next four Sundays, we resume our wildly popular Tell Me A Story segments in worship in which church members share a portion of their faith story. This week Scott Jameson is our speaker and Pastor Chris is our preacher. Join us live at 10:00 am (archived for later viewing) or 11:00 am on WEVR radio.

Wednesday Family Meals Return with a Twist!  Since we cannot safely host our Wednesday Meals in person, they have moved to a take-out format.  We will have ‘runners’ who can run the meals directly out to your car.  Use the back alley and drive south from Maple toward Elm Street.  Cost is $8 per person and will be served in eco-friendly containers.  Meals of more than 3 will be packaged family style.  The menu is below.  Orders must be placed by Tuesday night and can be picked up at church from 5:00-6:00 pm Wednesday.
