Our communion bread is nut-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free so that all of the Church body is able to partake together in unity.

Hi Church!

Today is an absolutely beautiful Fall day! This is my favorite season: not too hot; not too cold.

Sunday's temperature, however looks to be below 50, with the possibility of rain. Needless to say, we will be worshipping inside this Sunday. We will also be inside on the following week as well.

This week we begin a series of messages from the Psalms. Our Psalm for this week is most likely one of the lesser known ones, Psalm 96. However it really is suited for what Paul told the Philippians in chapter 4 from last week's sermon: "Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." [Philippians 4:8]

Last night at our October Board Meeting we set the date for a Quarterly Church Summit on Sunday, November 8, following that day's worship service. We recognize that for health reasons not everyone can attend. We are attempting to make a way, through technology, for you to be able to participate in the summit.

Look forward to seeing folks this Sunday. Be safe out there!

Hi Church,

This week is a drastic improvement over last week. The weather will be much nicer on Sunday. Last week we braved 45 degree temps as we met outside, this week should be in the upper 70's.

For those of you who watch through face book or you tube, I apologize for not including Holy Communion in last week's broadcast. We will include it in this week's.

We close out our study of Philippians this week by looking at Philippians 4:1-9. The topic on Sunday is "joy." This is a feeling, an emotion that seems to be predicated on things going right in order for us to experience it. Paul puts that myth to rest. He has another approach to joy as we shall see.

Come prepared to sit outside. Bring a lawn chair. Wear a mask. Practice social distancing. If you are feeling ill or have any symptoms, please stay home.

Looking forward to seeing you.
