We are in a strange place as a church and society, so we are sad that some things are not coming back immediately; like our Tiny Tots program, our Nursery, and Prayground. But please know that we are working on finding different ways to work on these issues that are pressing on all of us, trying to figure out the safest way to reopen what we’ve had before, and looking for new ways to do the things we can’t.
If you feel like you would want to try out a new way of doing ministry, we are also trying to start another experiment. Pastor Jordan is looking for a few people to do some brainstorming and creative thinking (and then some creative doing) about how we can support the people and families of our community at home. In other words, how can we bring the faith and bring church to people who can’t come to church? If this sounds like an exciting challenge to try and take on let us know!
The Spirit of our God, the spirit of mercy and love, has not stopped moving these past few months. It is here. It is calling us move with it. Calling us to show God to the world through our actions and through our words. Thank you for listening and supporting this ministry! Talk to you soon!
10th grade Confirmation
Every year our confirmation Sunday is a huge celebration with all of our confirmands who stand in front of the congregation and affirm their faith and baptisms. This year we get the opportunity to try out a new way of celebrating the hard work that our confirmands have put in and them becoming adult members of our church. Each confirmand is now picking their own Sunday to Affirm their Baptism in front of the entire congregation during our 10am services.
That means you’ll be seeing these 11 young men throughout this next year at different services confessing their faith and showing off some of their work that they have done. Please make sure to reach out to each of them and congratulate them and make them feel welcomed as full members of this church body! Thank you!
