As we are blessed with glimpses of spring, I hope you are being blessed with new manifestations of God’s grace and love.

While we continue our practice of social distancing, I invite you to join us for worship.  Not only will we share prayers and Scripture, but we will also have an opportunity to sing together a well-known hymn, “Come, Christians, Join to Sing” (#150).

1  Come, Christians, join to sing
Alleluia! Amen!
Loud praise to Christ our King;
Alleluia! Amen!
Let all, with heart and voice,
before his throne rejoice;
praise is his gracious choice.
Alleluia! Amen!

2  Come, lift your hearts on high,
Alleluia! Amen!
Let praises fill the sky;
Alleluia! Amen!
He is our Guide and Friend;
to us he’ll condescend;
his love shall never end.
Alleluia! Amen!

3  Praise yet our Christ again,

Alleluia! Amen!
Life shall not end the strain;
Alleluia! Amen!
On heaven’s blissful shore,
his goodness we’ll adore,
singing forevermore,
“Alleluia! Amen!”

Although we are unable gather for in-person worship at this time, it is a joy to have you participate with us through our online platform.

Throughout these days, please stay safe and well as we shelter-in-place.  May God embrace you with grace, love, and peace.

Blessings,
tom

From the Pastor’s Pen – March 2021

…during these 40 days of Lent, we may be wandering through a wilderness and encountering a different set of wild beasts. Invisible viruses are attempting to devour us; the herd of political animosity is growling around us…”

There Is Always Hope – 2/21/21

February Newsletter

Lent is not only that time in the church year in which we are summoned to examine ourselves and our everyday preoccupations in order to take stock of the direction of our lives, but it also that time where we are invited to follow Jesus along the journey that took Him to the cross.
