Join us for Worship!

Sunday, 10am

This week, we will be going back up the mountain again with our THIRD sermon in the series.

This week's reading visits some often misread and misunderstood passages where Jesus mentions lawsuits, relationships, and a possible reference to surgery (??) These words are figurative, not literal. Yet, they instill in us God's hope for us all.

Join us as we hear those words together and contemplate where this mountaintop sermon still speaks.

Scripture: Matthew 5:21-37

Clean-Up Feb. 18th 9am


From Pam Lohman


Dear Friends: As you know, the theatre/costume room got hit pretty hard when the pipes burst. Some awesome folks separated most of the damaged stuff and Ron and I were able to dump a lot of it. However, I could use some help going through remaining stuff in both the Epworth room and my office. There is a lot of clothing, fabric, etc... to be bagged and put in a dumpster, and some furniture to go through that may not be worth saving.  


If anyone is available for a few hours at 9am Saturday, February 18th, I'd greatly appreciate the help to finish the cleanup. Please wear/bring a mask and rubber gloves - I will bring extras just in case. I'll supply water, coffee and donuts to be served in a cleaner environment than my office!!  


Questions? If you're available, please email me at or talk to me on Sunday after the service.
