Our mission: to be a sign of Christ’s love for the world.
GATHER!
Here are the ways we worship together.

How wonderful to worship together in our sanctuary! 
Let us be mindful to the needs of those around us.

Out of love & safety for our youngest & most vulnerable, and due to the rise in Covid-19 cases,
ALL worshipers are to wear masks while in the sanctuary.

As Matthew 7:12 says, "Treat others as you would want to be treated."
Thank you for living in Christian love with one another!

Worship Schedule
10am in the Sanctuary or on Facebook Live.

This week’s scripture lesson is:
1 Timothy 6:17-19
Matthew 5:14-16
