As members of the body of Christ in this place and time, we are a welcoming congregation of people who gather to worship God, to share life together, to grow in love for each other and to be shaped by God’s Word, with the purpose of living out God’s love and being a sign of God’s loving and forgiving presence in our community and world. We hope you will join us!

Sunday, June 4, 2023 – The Holy Trinity

10:00 am Sunday Worship

We welcome you to worship this Sunday!

The Executive Committee suggests attendees continue to wear masks in worship, principally because of singing. Please continue to stay home if feeling sick and receive Holy Communion in a safe manner. Click the link above to worship online with us, and click the button below to view the bulletin and follow along. If you try the link prior to 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, you may see the message “video unavailable.”

Note about Hymn (in the June 4 Bulletin): The third Communion Distribution hymn is Glorify Thy Name. Since that hymn will be on an inserted page in the printed bulletin (no hymn # given), it is included at the end of the attached bulletin (so you’ll have the music and words if worshipping at home).

Baptized We Live Class Continues

You’re invited to join the Baptized We Live class today at 9:00 a.m. in Anderson Hall. Hope to see you there!
