With much difficulty and regrets the COVID-19 Task Force Team has decided that to keep everyone safe we are closing the church for services starting December 13th. The team will meet periodically to re-access the situation. We understand that there are still members that still want to attend, but we can't risk having other members, unknowingly, exposed. Pastor Kerns, Cheryl and Gail will continue to record services and post services to Facebook.

Thank you for understanding and peace be with you,
Tony Wright, Council President

Please understand all other activities are cancelled until further notice.

Third Sunday After Epiphany
January 24, 2021

As we continue through the time of Epiphany, stories of the call to discipleship show us the implications of our baptismal calling to show Christ to the world. Jesus begins proclaiming the good news and calling people to repentance right after John the Baptist is arrested for preaching in a similar way. Knowing that John was later executed, we see at the very outset the cost of discipleship. Still, the two sets of brothers leave everything they have known and worked for all their lives to follow Jesus and fish for people. (Sunday and Seasons 2020 Augsburg fortress)

Our worship services have been cancelled until further notice. We find it difficult to deal with it when we so want to gather and worship. 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.

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.
