This Sunday's Service: "Walking on Water"
In Sunday's Gospel reading, the apostles are in a boat during a storm, and they are gripped with fear. Jesus calms the storm with the words, "Peace, be still." Often, when we are in the storms of life and our world is being rocked, we, too, are overcome with fear. The Good News is that Jesus gives us the tools to transform our fear into faith.
Join us this Sunday at 10 AM (either in person or streaming live online), as we learn the tools to "walk on water" and explore the path of "Fear-Less Living." Message: Pastor Sal Sapienza. Music: Peter Black and Jeff Spangler

Last Week's Service
In last Sunday's gospel reading, Jesus multiplies the loaves and the fish, symbolizing for us the "Spiritual Law of Abundance." Jesus said, "I have come so that you may have an abundant life." So, are you living an abundant life, or are you living in "Scare City" (scarcity)? Please enjoy last Sunday's service, when we explored the "Spiritual Law of Abundance" and how to put it to work in our lives. Message: Rev. Ginny Mikita. Music: Peter Black
Fred Hamlin's Celebration of Ginny and Joan
Last Sunday, Rev. Ginny Mikita wore a robe that once belonged to the late Rev. Joan Hamlin. She is pictured here with Joan’s husband, Rev. Fred Hamlin. Rev. Joan also embroidered the lovely stole that graced our communion service last Sunday. A lovely way to celebrate Rev. Ginny's ordination and Rev. Joan's precious memory.
Kudos to our Busy Trustee -- Recent Campus Work Completed
Douglas UCC's busy Trustee, Kelly Wright, has completed two more projects on campus: The grade reduction behind Spring Street, home to our new offices, and renovation of the Friendship Hall entry door.
The grade reduction removed soil that had built up against the house's foundation and siding, adding a small retaining wall and a new rain gutter, to move rain to the drain at Chestnut Street. Grass has been reseeded behind the house to retain the soil at its new level.
And that bouncy entryway to the Friendship hall received extensive work where the joists had rotted completely away. New joists went in, along with a new weather-worthy door (the source of the problem). New vinyl and trim. The entryway will be repainted when a good time presents itself.
Thanks to all who support the care and upkeep of this little church!
