During this time of "social distancing," when we all might be feeling a little bit more anxious and isolated than normal, we would like to provide you with resources to help continue to keep connected and to nourish your spiritual journey. Check back often for new nuggets of inspiration and wisdom for spiritual growth!
Update (July 14, 2020)
In-person worship has resumed in all three churches! Listed below are our service times. Please note that, in an effort to care for the health and well-being of our more vulnerable members and to make our sanctuaries safe places for all, we are asking people to please wear face coverings while in the building. If you find yourself unable to wear a mask or face covering, please take care to distance yourself appropriately.
Additionally, for those who do not yet feel comfortable attending in-person worship, we will be continuing to post worship online, so that you may continue to participate safely from home. If you know of somebody unable to physically gather and unable to connect to online worship, please contact Pastor Melissa so that we can make every effort to connect them in other ways.
Saturdays at 6:30 pm
Drive-in worship in Wenskville parking lot.
A fabulous way to enjoy the evening summer breeze and to gather together and worship in an informal setting. For those who want to worship in community but who feel uncomfortable gathering indoors, this is ideal. You may bring a lawn chair and sit outside, or you may stay in your vehicle and listen over the radio at 104.3FM.
