Weekly E-Pistle: 24th Sunday after Pentecost
In This Week's E-Pistle, You Will Find:
This Sunday's Service: "Gifts & Talents"
On the surface, Sunday's Gospel of the "Parable of the Talents" may sound like an uncomfortable story about greed. But Jesus is offering an important teaching about our own relationship to God. We are endowed with innate talents precisely so that we can invest them, use them, and produce greater good. Come join us this Sunday for our "Video Worship Service," as we explore how to invest our gifts and talents to bring more of God's abundance into expression. Message: Pastor Sal. Music: Peter Black & Pamela Chappell.
Tune in on Sunday at 10 AM via our Facebook page, YouTube channel, or here on our website.
Last Sunday's Service: Keep Your Lamps Burning
During this Election Season and this time of COVID, many of us are feeling emotionally and spiritually drained. Do you have enough oil in your lamp? In last Sunday's Gospel reading, Jesus tells "The Parable of the 10 Bridesmaids," five of whom did not prepare enough oil in their lamps. We explored how to keep our spiritual lamps lit and burning, especially during such challenging times as these. Message: Pastor Sal. Music: Peter Black & Stan Greene. Read and share the homily here.
Post Election Statement from the UCC
What does love require of us next? The UCC shares an important message urging worshippers to tap the healing power of love to close our political divide.
Also, the National UCC's "Feature Story" this week talked about our little church and quoted from Pastor Sal's sermon last Sunday. You can read the article here:
"As Election Contention Continues, Churches Pray for Peace - and to Persist for Justice."
It's the second time this past month that the National UCC has highlighted our church.
