Christ Welcomes You

And So Do We.



Our Mission

Sunday Service May 9th, 2021

Happy Mother's Day! Join us in worship, either face to face in our beautiful Sanctuary, or via live stream on YouTube at 9:30 AM, Sunday May 9th. The sermon is titled: "Born of God, Bearing God."

We are contemplating 1 John 5:1, which says that "Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born from God." This truth relates to the way in which Mary gives birth to God -- the traditional title of Mary as "Mother of God" is in fact an affirmation of the divinity of Jesus. So there's being born *of* God, and giving birth *to* God, and these two together shine some light on our essential human and spiritual vocation.


Indoor and Online Worship Sunday May 2, 2021

Welcome home! We are so pleased to return to indoor worship in our Sanctuary, still observing masks and physical distancing. The service will be live streamed on YouTube for our at-home congregants. Pastor Clifton's Sermon Title is "Basic Christianity."

The Scripture reading will be: Acts 8:26-40; Psalm 22:25-31; 1 John 4:7-21; and John 15:1-8


Live Stream Worship April 25th, 2021

Join us in person on the lawn or via live stream for our last outdoor worship service of 2021! The sermon title is "The Lord Has Been Our Shepherd," and is drawn from the lectionary scriptures: Acts 4:5-12; Psalm 23; 1 John 3:16-24; and John 10:11-18.

If you join us in person, please bring your lawn chair and wear your mask. Next week, we return to indoor worship in the Sanctuary, still at 9:30 AM, and with masks and physical distancing still practiced for the health and safety of those who have yet to be vaccinated.
