“Giving Thanks”, November 22, 2015, 10:00 AM

In our scripture reading from Matthew 6:24-34, we hear Jesus tell us not to worry about our lives. He encourages us to look to the flowers of the field and the birds of the air. Is this a simple “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” message? No, not really. Join us as we reflect on his words and give thanks, since worry is a common pastime for most of us, that he once again grounds us in his message of ‘Fear Not.’

Come listen. Come learn. Come speak and sing. Come expecting to be embraced by the amazing grace of God. A welcoming church, we sing joyfully, worship fully and follow the service with a lively and connecting time of fellowship. Join us!

Like most church congregations, we worship, study, pray and care for one another. We reach out to our neighborhood and world to share the love of God and the Good News of Jesus Christ. We laugh and cry together. We sing, and sometimes we dance. Our building is full of stained glass, carved wood, red-aisled carpets and hard wood floors.

We have been in ministry since 1908, and we have members who have been here for more than 50 of those years! Fellowship (coffee, tea, food and friendship) is a very important part of our time together; many of our friends and members linger over a lunch meal for 45 minutes or more. Our congregation includes third generation members, newcomers, centenarians, artists, world travelers and motorcyclists – to categorize just a few of our members (which of course is really utter folly as each one of us is too unique to put in a box!). Needless to say, we are welcoming – really; we even hosted a bar mitzvah once.
