Dear Friend,

We hope and pray you have had a good week where you have experienced the presence of Jesus in your life.

Our Sunday Service begins at 10:00 am In-Person and on Facebook Live for those who cannot physically attend. It is important for us to be physically present at church to support one another on our faith journey as Christians.

The scripture reading for this Sunday, September 11 is Luke 15:1-32. Please read, reflect, and pray with the passage before Sunday. Here is a synopsis of the reading: Jesus responds to those who criticize him for keeping company with the unworthy. Please come to Sunday worship prepared to hear the Word of God proclaimed; we invite you to read the scripture passage before service. The music for this Sunday can be found on the top-right hand corner of our website.

At this service we will commemorate 9/11, where we will continue to pray for an end to terrorism and for the gift of peace in our world.
