Join Us As We Worship Together

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13,  2020, 10:00 am U.S. EASTERN TIME

We worship together LIVE using Zoom.  Join us by computer, smartphone, or tablet for video & audio, or using any telephone for just audio. ZOOM Recordings are now available  (click on link with camera above).

[NOTE: Your may join the Zoom worship service early, between 9:00 and 10:00 am, to see important announcements and updates about classes, events, and special occasions in the life of the church]

Dear Friends in Christ,

In this time that is like no other, I no longer take it for granted to be able to come together as God’s People for worship. Thank you all for your steadfastness in the faith and for adapting to us being able to worship together yet physically apart. May the Holy Spirit continue to bind us as the body of Christ wherever we all are!

This Sunday, the Gospel lectionary begins a series of the Parables that Jesus told according to the Gospel of Mark. All are told for our hearts to turn and be transformed more in the Way of Jesus Christ for the sake of the Kingdom to come. Please note that worship will conclude with a Called Congregational Meeting for the purpose of electing the Class of 2023 of Ruling Elders.

The attached Worship Guide is offered to you to do by yourself, with family and/or join in the ZOOM Live Service this Sunday at 10 am. Also, there is a Children’s Worship Guide that has been created so that all ages may worship together during this time. Each ZOOM worship service is planned intentionally for all ages in mind so that there may be some part or all of the service for everyone.

Our Worship Planning Group for today includes:  Wally Meggs, Elizabeth Nix, Sarah Shayban and myself.

Here are some ways to prepare for worship:

  1.  Read the scripture for today – Matthew 18:21-35.  Note that the context, which is part of the preceding verses, is the Church. This is one of two places in all 4 Gospels that the Greek word ekklesia ,“church,” is used.
  2. Set up a special place to worship. You may want a cross or some symbol of the Resurrection; a Bible; the Worship Guide and Children’s Worship Guide printed; flowers, etc.
  3.  Reflect on what you usually do for Sunday …dress up, cook a special meal, be with family, go to worship, etc. What can you do this day and adapt for where you are by doing it in a different way.
  4.  Pray.

May the eyes of our hearts be opened by the Spirit in this time together!

How may Christian Education support you in your
faith formation during this time?

Are you looking for a new small group Bible study to discuss the current events swirling around us? Do you wish you had space to talk and thing about faith in different generations? Do you need space with no agenda or plan, but a place for encouragement and support during these challenging times? Do you want to read a book together and dis- cuss with others?

We are all constantly adjusting to this new normal: please share your thoughts about what you long for, miss, feel an empty space for in your life of faith at this time. We want to provide programs and opportunities that meet your needs RIGHT NOW.

Call, text or email Elizabeth Nix. You may also email Ron Schildge and Melissa Graves.
