"Know the Lord"

Message from Pastor Kerns

Rooted in the past and growing into the future, the church must always be reformed in order to live out the love of Christ in an ever-changing world. We celebrate the good news of God’s grace, that Jesus Christ sets us free every day to do this life-transforming work. Trusting in the freedom given to us in baptism, we pray for the church, that Christians will unite more fully in worship and mission.

We will be moving back to the Nave for worship this week which is Reformation Sunday. After several conversations from the Covid-19 Task Force, Worship and Music, Worship Team, Church Council and the surveys from the congregation, it was decided to make a move back to the Nave for worship. We will still have all of the Protocols in place that we are using now including checking temperatures and asking the Covid-19 questions before you enter the Nave. We will distance in the worship space and seats will be taped off and MASKS are still required. The service will be a service of the Word to begin with and there will be no singing at this time. We will enter by the main doors on one side and exit out the other door. We ask that you do not linger in the building after worship and that you can chat in the parking lot after worship.

You will find the scripture readings and the message for this week in the links below. I have added a part of the gospel reading for the 21st Sunday after Pentecost that is another offering from the lectionary for this day. 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.
