In This Week's E-Pistle You'll Find:
In this Sunday's gospel message, Jesus sends the apostles out into the world to teach and to heal. He says, "Go out and proclaim the Good News that the Kin-dom of Heaven is near!"
Since the murder of George Floyd, millions of people around the world have gone out and taken to the streets to teach, to heal, and to proclaim that "Black Lives Matter." During this Sunday's online video worship service, we will explore what it means to put our faith into action. Message: Pastor Sal. Music: Peter Black and Nancy Plantinga.
Tune in on Sunday at 10 AM via our Facebook page, YouTube channel, or here on our website.
Watch Last Sunday's Service:
At last Sunday's service, we explored how the doctrine of the Trinity can help us during this time of uncertainty and unrest. We also shared all of your Pentecost photos in a beautiful slideshow set to Pamela Chappell's original song, "One." If you missed it, you can watch it here.
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. This class is also open to current church members who'd like a "refresher" course.
March at 2pm Sunday
This Sunday at 2 PM, a march in solidarity with the Black community to speak out against racism and end police violence. March is from Beery Field in Douglas to Coghlin Park in Saugatuck. Please wear masks and try to maintain as much social distancing as possible.
Photos of Douglas Community Pride:
Due to the coronavirus, this year's Community Pride was a "Care-a-Van" car parade through the streets of Douglas and Saugatuck. Thank you to all our church members who organized and took part in the event, and thanks to our congregant, Mark Reiman, for the wonderful photos.
The new “Pride Celebration Garden” being installed next to the Saugatuck/Douglas library is dedicated to our Douglas UCC church members, Carl Jennings and Larry Gammons.
