Welcome to our virtual worship service this Sunday, April 19th.
Call to Worship
Let There Be Light by Andrew Pakula, read by Abby Civiello
Let there be light
The light of joy, the light of happiness, and the light of contentment
May it illuminate our paths and fill our lives with peace

And let there be dark
For it is from our dark places that we are brought forward
Tried and tested
And impelled toward growth
It is in these places that we realize compassion and learn to love

And there was day and there was night.
And there was joy and there was sorrow.
And it was good.
Opening Music
One Love by Bob Marley
Lighting Our Chalice
Abundance Chalice Lighting
by Rev. Dawn Skjei Cooley
We light our chalice this morning, grateful for the love that we experience in this beloved community. May the flame light the way for all who seek such abundance.
"We light our chalice in peace and friendship."
Time for All Ages
A House for Hermit Crab by Eric Carle, read by Anna Raley
Even though our church is closed, we are still here for you. Rev. Frieda, Gwen, Sam, and Andrea continue to carry on. Even as your own life faces uncertainty, whatever you can give is greatly appreciated so we can continue to offer the connection, comfort and content we each rely upon. Just click the "Make Your Offering" button below (to contribute via PayPal), dropping a check or cash in the mail, or sending via your bank. We are here for you. The morning offering has now been requested.

Closing Words
In the End it Won't Matter by John C. Morgan, read by Mia Raley
In the end it won't matter how much we have,
but how generously we have given.
It won't matter how much we know,
but rather how well we live.
And it won't matter how much we believe,
but how deeply we love
