SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP 
Our Sunday morning service
is at 11:00 AM in our Sanctuary. 
 
Mask are required for group gatherings.  We also are asking everyone to maintain proper social distancing.
 
 
There also will be an online service available Sunday morning 
and hopefully our morning worship service will be available.
 

Pastor Sharpe and the church staff continue to meet weekly to pray and discuss the most recent updates from the CDC and the Governor’s office. In response to the most recent guidelines and mandates  of no more than 10 people gathered at a time, we are developing ideas for creative ways to worship and pray together in days going forward. We, of course, will honor the  Governor’s requests  Which means that all regular activities of prayer meeting and choir rehearsal are cancelled at this time. 

We commit to meeting and praying for you, finding new ways to share resources and sermons with you, and keeping you informed regarding prayer list concerns.

We are concerned about your safety and well-being and praying for you daily. Please stay in touch with us in the office! Let us know if you have any prayer concerns for the prayer list and any suggestions for staying connected during this time!

Welcome
 

Once past the bricks and columns of our buildings, you are likely to find an extended hand, a smiling face, and a warm embrace(before Covid (smile). Sound great? Yes, but it’s not enough.

On a deeper level, we are beginning to understand that true “welcoming” goes beyond being friendly; it means truly accepting others… their pains, problems, sins and sorrows… along with their hopes and dreams. “Come as you are” must become more than a slogan. Can we truly welcome someone if we think our job is to change them? Not really. Welcoming does not mean “Come, be one of us.” Rather, welcoming means “Come, be loved as you are; love us as we are; and perhaps, in the grace of God, we can become better together.”  
 

SHARING the GOOD NEWS

Someone has said that “sharing the Good News of God’s love is like one beggar telling another where to find bread.” It’s the right thing to do… and it feels good. We are all sinners who equally need the grace of a good God, day by day, moment by moment. Each of us needs all of God’s grace, no matter what we have or have not done. The Good (GREAT) News is that God longs to enter our lives and give us a new start. From that time forward, we are not alone. The more we share with others, the more we realize God’s presence is near to us. God’s love is often best shared in practical ways… in acts of kindness… just because God is love.
