"Faith That Feeds"
We believe that faith should feed and nurture our spirits.
We believe also that faith should lead us to feed people
in the many different ways they hunger,
both physically and spiritually.

The Second Sunday in Pentecost

Commemoration of the Emanuel 9, Juneteenth

This Sunday’s texts paint startling pictures of the horrific nature of sin. The church’s repeated celebration of holy communion counters that tragic reality in a continued showing forth of the death of Jesus until he comes again. It is a dramatic declaration of “how much God has done for you.”

Sunday Hybrid Worship

Prelude begins at 10:20 a.m.,

Holy Communion

There are two options for receiving Holy Communion in worship.

You may pick up pre-packaged communion elements and commune in the pew, or prepare your own elements in advance if worshipping via Zoom. The pastor will say “The body of Christ given for you and the blood of Christ shed for you" following the singing of the Lamb of God.

The other option is to come forward to receive the bread from the Pastor and wine or grape juice from the Assisting Minister. The glasses will be pre-poured, with the grape juice in the inner circle and wine in the outer circle. Each person will take their own glass from the tray. The Assisting Minister and Pastor will remain masked during the distribution. Please keep in mind proper physical distance from other worshippers in coming forward and in removing your mask to consume the elements. Empty glasses can be deposited in trays on the front pews. This will be a continuous communion, standing to receive the elements.

Commemoration of the Emanuel 9, Martyrs

7th Anniversary

Also this Sunday we remember before God the beautiful lives of nine members and pastors of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, murdered by a self-professed white supremacist on June 17, 2015, while they were gathered for prayer and Bible Study. At the 2019 ELCA Churchwide Assembly, this day was set aside as a day of reflection and repentance for the sins of racism that continue to plague our churches. 

Happy Father's Day!

To all our fathers and father figures in our community!
