In This Week's E-Pistle You'll Find:
The first Sunday after Pentecost is Trinity Sunday, an opportunity for us to reflect intentionally on one of Christianity’s most important (and challenging!) ideas. And, as the global pandemic continues to unfold, now compounded by turmoil over George Floyd’s murder by a police officer, the question is unavoidable: How can the doctrine of the Trinity help in this time of crisis? That'll be the focus of this Sunday's online video worship service, so please join us. Message: Pastor Sal. Music: Peter Black and Pamela Chappell.
Tune in on Sunday at 10 AM via our Facebook page, YouTube channel, or here on our website.
Watch Last Sunday's Service:
Thank you to all who tuned in last Sunday for our Video Worship Service. Pastor Sal began the service in black and white, reading aloud a letter from our UCC leadership about the murder of George Floyd, who we honored during our prayer time. Peter Black played two powerful hymns, calling upon the Spirit to "renew the face of the Earth" and to "send down your fire of justice." Stan Greene spoke of our "unity in diversity," and Elizabeth Estes sang of our being "stronger together." If you missed the service or would like to re-watch it, you can view it here.
Our Pentecost Family Photos:
Thank you to all who sent in photos of yourselves wearing red last Sunday as you watched our Pentecost service from home. We received photos not only from our church members in Michigan, but from people in California, New Mexico, Florida, Illinois, and Kansas. Our family is growing! We will be sharing the photos in a slideshow during this Sunday's video worship service.
We officially welcome new members to our church twice a year: once in the Spring and once in the Fall. We were unable to hold our Spring New Members class in person due to the Coronavirus, but Pastor Sal will be holding the class online via Zoom on June 18 at 6 PM. If you are interested in becoming a member of our church, please email Pastor Sal to register for the class.
