This Sunday's Service: "For All the Saints"
In Sunday's Gospel, Jesus is asked, "What is the greatest commandment?" He answers, "Love God with all your heart, mind and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself."
Join us this Sunday at 10 AM (either in-person or streaming live online), as we explore love of God, love of neighbor, and love of self.
And, in honor of All Saints Day, we will conclude our Sunday service in the Memorial Garden behind the church with a "Remembrance of Names," honoring our loved ones who have died.
Message: Pastor Sal. Music: Peter Black and Jeff Spangler

Last Sunday's Service: "Seeing with New Eyes"
In last Sunday's gospel reading, a blind man is able to see through the power of belief. Jesus tells him, "Your faith has made you well." Please enjoy last Sunday's service, when we went on a "Vision Quest" to discover the ways in which we are spiritually blind, and learn how to "see more clearly" with new eyes of the Spirit. Message: Pastor Sal. Music: Peter Black and Jeff Spangler

Shirley Lawson and Robin Haaksma's "Sabbath"
Last Sunday, we were all so honored to hear a brand new song for our Introit, entitled "Sabbath." This song began as a poem, above, about finding peace in nature during the pandemic, written by our church member, Shirley Lawson. It was set to music and performed by her sister-in-law, Robin Haaksma.
You can see that lovely performance here.
