LIVE worship Sunday 08/30/2020 at 10:30AM, Move with the Holy Spirit
(feed begins a few minutes early)
Need to get moving?
This Sunday we are on our next-to-last of the 10 summer prayer beads, a fiery red one to remind us to move when the Holy Spirit (the fire of God's love) tells us to take action! Do you need a walk, a nap, some alone time, or some friend or family time? How about a song, dance, or simple good stretch? Have you been thinking about someone, but haven't picked up the phone or a pen in a while? Well... maybe it's time to get moving! Join us Sunday at 10:30AM in the sanctuary (with face coverings and social distance), or online at this YouTube link (which you can also find on our Facebook page and church website)... thanks for your prayers and presence!
Also, in September, the clergy (pastors) and laity (everyone else) in our four-state region (called the Mountain Sky Conference) is invited on a virtual Pilgrimage to the Land of Love. I will be taking the journey, and I invite you to join me, as we make an honest, God-led investigation of our embedded beliefs in an effort to dismantle racism and other forms of division in our hearts, home and society. Click the link below for more information.
Despite the chaotic world around us, our finances remain steady (though lower than expected, so we are keeping expenses down). We are grateful for all who faithfully give - in person (on Sundays or during the week by stopping at the office), by mail, online, or even via text message. We will be switching to a new online payment system in October (details to come). Please take a moment to pray about and joyfully give whatever God leads you to offer!
