Join Us Sundays

@ 11:00 a.m.

as we celebrate

the season of Lent

Lent reminds us that, again and again, suffering and brokenness find us.  When we embrace the fullness of the promise of the Resurrection, we desire to live as disciples.  We are disciples who make disciples.  So, despite feeling as though we have already been in a year-long season of Lent during the pandemic, we still need this season.  We need the observance to open us to all God has in store for us.  Rend your hearts, so that we can claim the promise.

  • We have resumed in-person Bible Study, Sunday School and worship with certain guidelines in place.  The guidelines are important so that everyone, especially our most vulnerable (older adults & people with health conditions), feel safe to attend worship.  We are observing social distancing and require all people to wear a face mask.  (For a complete list of our guidelines, please email Deb Epley.)  What a blessing it is to visit with our church family,  to hear the songs of the faith, and to receive the sermon from Pastor Deb once again!  Please join us!  By the way, small groups (Sunday School, Soul Sisters Bible Study, Men's Ministry, Art with a Purpose) will resume soon. Stay posted!

  • New Day Bible Study is currently reading Breaking the Code:  Understanding the Book of Revelation.  Our study takes place on Thursday mornings at 10:00 a.m., both in person and via ZOOM.  Please email Pastor Deb if you want to join us by ZOOM.

  • Have you noticed the Blessing Box recently placed in our church yard? Cade Bailey, a senior at Chelsea High School, has built the Blessing Box for his Eagle Scout project. Cade chose our church because he thought it would be a natural outgrowth from our monthly Community Food Table. The Blessing Box is located under the trees near the playground, and he has stocked the box with some canned products for families in need of assistance. Anyone in need can take what he or she needs from the Blessing Box. Please spread this good news in the community. And thank you, Cade!

THURSDAYS, 10 A.M.

Our New Day Study always offers us interesting and challenging books by such Christian writers as Adam Hamilton, Joyce Rupp, Walter Brueggemann, and many others.  In addition, we have  learned  easy meditation techniques and chair yoga.  And we always engage in absorbing discussion.  There's lots of laughter, too!  Join us!
