For reflection

Jesus challenges us to honestly assess if and how our actions show we care.



Sunday morning we will be Zoom only: Sunday school will be at 9:30, and there will be a "fellowship break" at 10:30. Worship will be at 10:45. The meeting will be "open" from 9:15a-12:15p. We will have a good news in outreach from Foodnet and read Luke 16:19-31.


Next week we will read Luke 19:29-44 and ask that you have a branch and a cloak to lay on the floor in your worship space.


An in-person option for worship services will resume April 11. More details to come on how these hybrid services will work.


We thank Gordon for kicking off our 2021 theme verse last week: Joshua 1:9

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”


We are collecting for My Coins Count. Get your coins to kids who participate in children's stories and they will make noise on the coin contraption in my backyard.
