Worship Videos, Readings, and more
This is a reminder about this coming Sunday, August 2, 2020. If you are able, we encourage you to drive to the church between 10:00 and 11:00 AM in order for two special events to take place. We are going to do two things on Sunday, and you’re invited:
1) Meet Pastor Linda in person. It would be tons of fun if you could make a homemade sign with your name(s) on it to hold out the window. As you drive up, stop and say hi and introduce yourself.
2) While you are stopped, someone will be there to serve you a packet containing unopened communion elements, if you so desire to receive them. You may take them home because they will already be blessed and sanctified. Pastor Linda will include the blessing of the elements during the online worship service for this Sunday which will be posted to our FB page and our website.
Folks, this is not how any of us envisioned doing church, but it is a way to gather even for a short while. Our key concern is keeping people safe. We can worship God no matter where we are or whether we are alone or with others!
I truly hope to see you all on Sunday. Until then, may God bless you and keep you.
Peace and grace in Christ,
