Dear Friend,

Tomorrow we as a nation remember the terrible tragedy of 9/11. It was 20 years ago America experienced so much loss, devastation, and death. We continue to pray for the victims of September 11 and their families. We also remember the first responders who risked it all to save so many. As Christians we are called to pray for peace and healing in our world and in our hearts. On Sunday service we will have a moment of silence reflecting on the events of 9/11.

Our in-person services continue this Sunday at 10:00 am. Our scripture reading for this Sunday is Mark 8:27-35. Here is a summary of the reading from Mark: Here is your God, he comes with vindication; with divine recompense he comes to save you.

Please read, reflect, and pray with the passage before Sunday. The music for this Sunday can be found on the top-right hand corner of our website or below.

It appears the Delta variant is affecting people who have been vaccinated. For Sunday service we are going to social distance the chairs in church and strongly recommend we temporarily wear masks.

Towards the end of September, we will be offering adult education based on the book Emotionally Healthy Spirituality. Now is a good time to start reading it. The book sells for $18.99; our price is only $16.00. Stop by the Cross Shop today and purchase a copy! The cost of the sessions is $15.00, and it includes another book. If there is an issue with payment, please know scholarships are available. Father Dale and members of our community will lead the class. Please put these dates on your calendar: September 22, 29, October 6, 13, and 20. You can sign up after services on Sunday.
