Sunday, March 22, 2020 Service
Beloved in Christ:
Heeding the advice of national, state, and local public health officials, the Session has cancelled all church activities, including worship in the sanctuary, for the time being.
To stay in touch with one another and to continue the corporate worship of God, we will be using a mixture of old and new technology.
To provide timely information, especially to those who do not have internet access, and to stay in touch, the Session has divided the names in the directory among themselves in an old-fashioned “phone (and now text) tree.”
On Sundays, at 10 a.m. we will have “virtual” worship, using video and audio conferencing to connect us “in spirit and in truth” as Jesus said. If we have an email for you, you will receive an invitation to a Zoom meeting and also some technical guidance from Mark Owens. Message your email address if you want to be added.
If you have prayer concerns and expressions of gratitude, please email or call the church or call or text me. We will share these as a part of our worship.
The church office will be open as usual, Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. As far as I can control my schedule, I will be in the office Sunday-Thursday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Our work as the church continues, especially in this uneasy time. We have already provided lunch and snacks for some of the 100 children in the Raven Crest apartments whose parents were not prepared for the sudden closing of schools. If you know of other opportunities of service, please let us know so we can join you in being the body of Christ in the world.
"Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful. And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching. [Hebrews 10:23-25]
Jesus cannot be quarantined.

Worship With Us
Sunday worship is at 10:00 a.m.
Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve.
God comes to us in free and undeserved favor in the person of Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose for us that we might belong to God and serve Christ in the world. Following Jesus, Presbyterians are engaged in the world and in seeking thoughtful solutions to the challenges of our time.
