Worship LIVE this Sunday 08/23/2020 at 10:30AM, "Pray for the whole World." (feed starts a few minutes early)
Prayer works! Give it a try
What in the world?!? My eyes have been itching and burning all week - and we had to cancel plans to go swimming last weekend. Our state is on fire. Across Colorado, firefighters and support crews are working around the clock to protect our land, structures and people. They need your prayers, alongside all those fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, and all those just struggling to breathe or make it through the most difficult back-to-school season yet!
Our summer series, Pray Every Day, focused on intercession last week, lifting up specific people, places and concerns. This Sunday, we'll study John 17:17-26 to uncover Jesus's plans for his disciples and followers in this world after he departed it. 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!
Love, even in smoke, Pastor Emily Flemming
Church finances are holding steady, even when some of us may feel that we are not. Please prayerfully consider what you can do to support this church and community - and give whatever you can generously and joyfully!
Last Sunday we tried something new - Fellowship Time on Zoom video! Some got it, others (like the Pastor) didn't! So we'll keep trying a few more weeks.
