Unison Prayer

We bless you,

God of Seed and Harvest

And we bless each other

That the beauty of this world

And the love that created it

Might be expressed though our lives

And be a blessing to others

Now and always


Call to Worship:

L: God provides enough.

God created each of us as enough.

P: God creates a world of abundance.

L: But our certainty of scarcity, our idolatry of the shiny, and our fears of others

P: prevent us from gratitude, graciousness, and sharing.

L: We live in an abundant world.

P: Our creator makes it so.

L: Move our hearts, lessen our fears in this hour.

P: There is enough for all of us.

         All: Praise to the God of Enough!

Please note this change

Pastor Jen has a new email address and will soon stop checking or using the old one. Please update your address books as needed.



Sunday mornings we have returned to live streaming our Sunday services, but we realize that there are still some issues popping up some Sundays. On our website you can usually watch the recorded service after 10:30am or so. There is a link to our site at the end of this newsletter.

We continue to work on making the online experience better and appreciate both your grace and feedback as we make improvements. Soon, we will be updating our internet capabilities and are hopeful that this will fix some of the issues.

We are grateful to be able to offer our services online and appreciate any gifts received to help this ministry grow and continue.

*We are aware that we have had some streaming issues over the last few weeks, we are working on resolving the problem.

If you have something that should be added to this newsletter from your group or mission, please speak with Pastor Jen or email the details to her at jenmatt20@gmail.com. The E-Grace is generally completed by noon on Thursdays, so articles need to be received by Thursday 10am at the very latest.

If you wish to connect with me directly and it is not an emergency, please know that I will respond as needed during pretty regular office hours. I am in the church most weekdays from at least 10-12, call the office to be sure, as my weeks vary. Ann has my detailed schedule and can find me if needed. I check my emails frequently throughout the day, and this is the best way to contact me.
