Join us for online worship this Sunday, September 27, at 10:15 a.m. at


We are coming to the realization that, six months into this pandemic, it will be several more months before we are in any major way gathering together in person. Worship is online. Coffee hours are virtual. Christian education and Bible studies are on Zoom. Meetings are on Zoom as well.

As we move into the fall, usually a time of more people and more activity after the summer months, each one of us is needed. You are needed by other members here. You are needed by the larger community as well.

It is time for us to get up and be here for one another again—in whatever way possible—so that together we might face the challenges and opportunities that confront us now.

This morning we’ll explore how lament and good news meet when we find each other.
