NEW! Online Worship Service

Special Worship Service for March 22, 2020




In this holy season of Lent, we find we have entered a new, though temporary, reality.  We have taken a deeper pause, sheltering in place, thinking of our health and the health of those around us, praying more deeply, finding joy in unlikely places. God will use this time for good, shaping and molding us in holy ways. Like you, I wonder what I will glean from this time as I navigate life in a different way.

We will be preparing a recorded worship service to share with you via YouTube on Sunday, March 22nd.

In the meantime, here are some Daily Quarantine Questions (Greater Good Science Center) to guide and ground you as you shelter in place:

  1. What am I grateful for today?
  2. Who am I checking in on or connecting with today?
  3.  What expectations of “normal” am I letting go of today?
  4. How am I getting outside today?
  5.  How am I moving my body today?
  6.  What beauty am I either creating, cultivating, or inviting in today?

Know that we are holding you in prayer as we live these days. Be well! Please call or email to stay in touch and let us know how you are and what you need.

In hope and faith,

Pastor Nancy
