Current Sermon Series

Mighty Men and Women of Valor in These Uncertain Times The biblical story of how a man named, Gideon, rose to the occasion in the midst of great adversity is relevant to those of us who need a little backbone to face the tumult of COVID, elections, China and just about everything that unnerves us. Discover how the LORD literally reinvented one man’s faith and helped him become victorious in life.

2020 Council Meeting

The 2020 Congregational Council Meeting will be held on Sunday, November 22 at 9:30 am (replacing the Sunday School hour) in the Sanctuary. We will follow social distancing protocols for the safety of all who are in attendance. Please bring a pen or pencil to mark your ballots as they will not be distributed at the meeting. Packets for the meeting will be distributed by e-mail or regular mail by November 8th. Given the unusual circumstances associated with COVID, church members who do not feel comfortable attending the meeting in person will be given the opportunity to vote for new Board members, confirm annual conference and district conference delegates and vote on the 2021 budget by absentee ballot. On Thursday, November 19, Carol Wingert and a Board member will be at the church from 5-7 pm to distribute and collect ballots. To vote, you will drive into the parking lot behind the church and remain in your car. You will be handed two ballots per member. After marking the ballots, you will place them into separate, closed boxes, which will not be opened until Sunday morning when the other ballots are counted.
