2nd Sunday of Easter

April 11, 2021

The Easter season is a week of weeks, seven Sundays when we play in the mystery of Christ's presence, mostly through the glorious Gospel of John. Today we gather with the disciples on the first Easter, and Jesus breathes the Spirit on us. With Thomas we ask for a sign, and Jesus offers us his wounded self in the broken bread. From frightened individuals we are transformed into a community of open doors, peace, forgiveness, and material sharing such that no one among us is in need.

We have returned to in-person services. We will still follow all of the precautions that we used in the past. We will still require masks to be worn in the building and we will ask that you social distance when in the building. We will take your temperature and ask you the Covid questions when entering the building. The hand sanitizer dispensers are available in several locations in the building. We have marked off seats in the Nave that will not be used so that we social distance safely. There still will be no singing or communion at this time. We will continue to post a weekly service on the Facebook Page and send out the emails and US Mail for those who are not on Facebook or have a computer. Things have been very trying to say the least and you have heard it so many times now. We still are the church and the Word of God continues to the end of time so we will continue sharing that word as best as we are able.

We welcome Pastor Jeffrey Compton as our supply pastor this week. We appreciate his willingness to share a message with us during this Easter Season. Pastor Kerns is on vacation for the week. You will find the scripture readings and the message for this week in the links below. I offer you the peace of Christ and pray that you are all safe. Keep yourselves in prayer and scripture to keep yourselves strong and able to overcome any concerns that you are facing.
