We are a liturgical people. Liturgy incorporates words, songs, and gestures that are used by Christians to identify themselves and each other. We invite you to join with us in this joyful celebration of God’s love as we worship together today!

Dear friends in Christ,
Grace and Peace are yours in abundance! Amen.
After much prayer and conversation, based on the guidance not only from our own faithful bishops, but also from our local and state leadership – your congregation council has voted to suspend all congregational activities for the next two weeks. This would include the next three Sundays, March 15 through March 29. Our hope is that our next public worship would be Palm/Passion Sunday, April 5. Until further notice we will not have any activities at the church—that includes worships on Sunday and Wednesdays as well as previously scheduled book or bible studies, circle meetings, committee meetings, or health and other small group ministries, classes, or programs.
This is simply to do our part in the attempts to slow down the spread of the Covid-19 virus. I believe it is our duty as citizens of this great nation to comply with this request. It will not last for long. That is our prayer.
I am always available if you need pastoral assistance. That will not stop because of this situation. We will be giving more details about other changes in the meantime as we discuss those needs. In the meantime, pray for our community – our state – our nation – and our world.
Remember that God loves you and so do we! Blessings to you all.
