A note from Rev Jen regarding Worship and coffee hour…

Most of you are aware that we still have some technical hurdles to overcome to live stream worship. We’ve had trouble-shooting conversations and will get some additional input from AV tech people and our cable provider. Until we’re able to determine all of the equipment that is needed to be replaced/installed, we will record the worship service at 10 and hope to send a link to the service by 11:30 or so hoping that it will work and be a good short-term option.
 
Therefore we will not have Zoom coffee hour in the near future.
 
We appreciate your patience as we learn on the fly and seek to make worship accessible and of the highest quality possible.
 
Blessings to you all.
From the worship and ops committees,
Rev Jen

WISDOM WEDNESDAYS

 

Click here to join us virtually every Wednesday at 7:30 pm to discuss the ‘Words of Wisdom’ – (read below) 

WEEKLY WORDS OF WISDOM

Please read through Sunday’s Sermon 1-17-20 and meditate on these scriptures:

Psalm 139:1-10   “O Lord, you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away. You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, O Lord, you know it completely. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is so high that I cannot attain it. Where can I go from your spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there. If I take the wings of the morning and settle at the farthest limits of the sea, 10 even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fast.”

Romans 8:31-39  “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

DEAR SAINTS – Pastor’s Blog

Take This Bread And Eat

Dear Saints, Before the year’s end, I had to get bloodwork drawn for my annual physical. To expedite the process, I pre-registered through the portal so I could ‘zoom in and out’. Funny (or not so,) how the word Zoom has taken on a new meaning in 2020! However evidently, my pre-registration, through the portal, didn’t take. So, there I was at a kiosk having to go through the entire process again. Even after telling the service rep (twice) that I had pre-registered she said “Huh, it didn’t seem to take. Sorry! we’ll have to start again. It won’t take ...

Bring Light To The Darkness

Dear Saints, Well, here we are in Advent. How did that happen??? The paces of our lives are moving in the weirdest rhythm ever; both more slowly as we hold back on regular activities, events, travel, family gatherings and school(!), and speeding up as we eagerly await increasingly hopeful news of vaccines and dream of future freedom. Call me crazy, but I think Advent is coming at the ‘perfect’ time. As I write this, we are still in November, barely. I have a number of wall calendars in my home, each with a different theme. The one on my study ...
