Winter Weather
Dear Beloved of God,
At its monthly meeting this week, the Session approved a recommendation from the Stewardship Committee concerning winter weather. We made this decision to best care for our membership, property and stewardship of the budget. 

If there is snow or ice, de-icer will only be used on the public sidewalks. Sand will be used on church walks to limit damage to the concrete. 

Worship will be by Zoom only. The worship leadership team will decide if we will try to come to the sanctuary to conduct the service or do it from home. However, the congregation will participate via Zoom only. Should we cancel in-person worship, a message will be sent out via email and on Facebook.

ZOOM Sunday School for Children Resumes January 9
Children of all ages are invited to Zoom Sunday School, each Sunday morning from 9:45–10:15. Please join us for songs, Bible stories, prayers, crafts, and more!

As word spreads about Zoom Sunday School, we’ve been blessed to have participants from as far away as Washington State and Costa Rica. We will be joined at least occasionally in the new year by Sid (aka Luke Van Marter), who no doubt will continue to make us smile as he completely misunderstands the day’s Bible lesson.

Teachers are Eva Stimson, Jerry Van Marter and Bev Machin. Please contact Eva or Jerry if you are interested in being part of the teaching team in 2022 or if you want to be added to the list to receive the weekly Zoom invitations. 

If you have any questions or comments, please call or email Eva Stimson or Jerry Van Marter.
Join Spirit of Sophia and Paula D'Arcy on January 29th
Learning to balance your own self-care and growth with the needs of a thirsty world.
A Virtual Mini Retreat for Women on Saturday, January 29th from 10:00 am to 12:15 pm EST
Cost: $55 (partial scholarships are available)

Join us to explore taking greater responsibility for being fully alive. What do I need to see about myself? What keeps my pain stuck and my voice at times silent? Am I able to say “yes” to life’s necessary pruning? Rumi teaches, “Stop looking the other way. Look inside yourself. You already have the precious mix that will make you well.”

We encourage you to take this Saturday and set it aside for you. If at all possible, plan to spend time in solitude after our time with Paula – perhaps using a spiritual practice that takes you deep within to reflect on the wisdom shared and what has risen up in you.
