The Church in Times of Crisis: Snapshots from American History with Heath Carter
As we continue to navigate the cascading challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, what can we learn from the past? Over the course of this month-long series we'll consider a number of moments in American history when Christians confronted crisis. In their stories we will not discover ready-made solutions for our contemporary predicament. But along the way we will find plenty of opportunities to reflect on what it means to be people animated by faith, hope, and love, even when it seems like the world is falling apart.   
Worship - Sunday, June 21, 9:15 a.m.
 The worship service will be available in the blue "Worship" box on the homepage on the website on Sunday, June 21, beginning at 9:15 a.m. There will also be a direct link to worship and all-ages Zoom coffee hour in an email on Sunday morning. You can also access "one-click" worship through our YouTube channel starting at 9:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings.

You can continue to view the worship services and Adult Education videos from previous online editions on the Weekly Bulletin and Adult Education Archive pages.
Zoom Coffee Hour - Sunday, June 21, 11:00 a.m.
All-ages Zoom Fellowship
Bring your own coffee/juice and join at 11:00 a.m. or a few minutes earlier, so we can split into breakout conversation groups.
