A Word from the Pastor
Sunday Worship
8:30 a.m. Outdoor
10 a.m. in Sanctuary
10 a.m. on Facebook
This Sunday is a day of transition… a day of “in between”… in between Rev. Eardley and Rev.
Dulworth. Today’s Old Testament text speaks of this very experience…the transition between Elijah and Elisha. While we won’t see chariots and horses or fire, or persons taken up into heaven, we can hear Elijah’s call to take up the mantle of faith that God has laid before us. Like Elisha, we can pick up the mantle, share fully in the vision of God’s beloved community, led by the Spirit. All are invited!
Rev. Judy May
Vesper Service Thursday
Thursday at 7 p.m. for worship on Facebook
Unwind, relax, reflect, and connect with God.
Pairings: Ezra + Nehemiah
The Odd Couple
When the Jews returned from exile, the pairing of Nehemiah and Ezra was God’s recipe for renewal. What a pair! Nehemiah was bold, Ezra was tedious, but both were essential. Tune in to consider how God’s odd couple has light for you today.
Rev. Rick Kress
