Whether you have attended worship in person or online, you know that this fall we have taken up the question, “Why Church?” and we have been looking at fundamental aspects of this institution that we treasure and hold in common.
In recent weeks, we’ve provided timely resources through our Senior Sessions; we’ve gathered with those needing support amidst grief at monthly Faith & Grief luncheons and weekly Grief Support Groups; we’ve shared home communion with members and friends who are not able to be with us in person; and we gathered as retired and current church elders for our bi-annual College of Elders event where we recognized and celebrated our deep bench of leadership, past and present.
If you or someone you know would appreciate receiving communion at home, we will offer it once again in December. Please contact the church office to let us now. Also our annual Blue Christmas service will be held on December 2. All are invited to this special service designed for anyone needing encouragement during the holiday season.
Peace be with you,
Rev. Mark Brainerd
