Weekly E-Pistle: Palm Sunday
Palm Sunday Video Service
We hope you'll tune in to our Palm Sunday video service, which will be broadcast here on our church's website and on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. Pastor Sal will be giving an inspiring message for the beginning of Holy Week, and there will be music from Peter Black and Nancy Plantinga. You can watch the broadcast on Sunday starting at 10 AM.
Wow! More than 100 people joined our Zoom Virtual "Friendship Hall" Gathering last Sunday. Thank you. Please join us this Sunday at 11 AM for another virtual gathering.
Zoom has been having some trouble with "Zoom bombing" (like photo bombing, but ruder), so we will not be displaying the Zoom link on social media, but sending it to your email inbox. If you haven't received your Zoom link via email by Friday (be sure to check your spam folder!), we may not have your current email address! Just write to us at email@example.com, identify yourself and request the meeting I.D. And please do not share these meeting IDs on social media or in any way other than email or text with people you know.
Welcome Home, Sal and Gregg!!
Our Douglas UCC family welcomed Pastor Sal home from sabbatical with this video surprise!
Thank you to all who participated, to Kathleen Mueller for the idea, and to Chris Clark for putting it all together. Sal and Gregg were very touched. There may have been tears!
Our very own Pastor Sal will be a guest this Saturday on the "Morning Grind" Radio Show. He will be talking about coping spiritually with the coronavirus and finding balance during this time of great uncertainty. Tune in to 92.7 FM, "The Van," at 7 AM.
