We will post any updates to our worship plans regarding COVID-19 here. Also check our Facebook page and our email newsletter.
These are strange and (in recent years) unprecedented times. If we are followers of Jesus Christ, we must remember that our calling is not to be fearful, but to respond to all situations with love and wisdom. Spend some time in prayer today and ask God how you can best love your neighbors (both literal and metaphoric) through this situation.
All together now!
Sundays @ 10:15a
Online & In-person
In addition to our Facebook live option, we have added a new option. We are now using Zoom to live stream! Follow this link:
Let us not grow weary.
Followers of Jesus have long been challenged and corrected by the teaching that God-With-Us offered us--The greatest commandment is to "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’...And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’" (Matthew 22:37-39).
The task that the Church is constantly working out is how best to love our neighbors in each new season we find ourselves in. And this particular year has been a constant reminder that love must be lived out; otherwise it's simply platitudes. In this truly harrowing year, my dear church family, you have given generously. We have set up a Tiny Home. We have collected coats for needy kids. We have supported 2nd Chance and helped it as the ministry was blessed to take over the lease of the Commons. And now we're turning toward the need for sleeping bags for our neighbors experiencing homeless. We are living out the calling to love and serve the least of these!!
So let us not grow weary of doing good (Galatians 6:9). Instead, let us press on even more! Let us work toward loving with even more generosity. Let us extend that same love to ourselves in these hard days. Let us give out grace without exception.
We gather to worship (even distanced and masked and across cyberspace) because we believe that the Good News about Christ Jesus is precisely what makes us capable of loving the way that Jesus does. Thanks be to God.
