Worship

Dear Friends,

Greetings!  Our Zoom link remains the same for this coming Sunday at 10:30, and it will be the same link for our Christmas Eve service on Dec. 24th, at 4 p.m., as well as our final service for year on Dec. 27th.  Here is the link:

This coming Sunday, we will focus on our sense of hearing and sounds of the seaon.  Feel free to wear bells!  Jingle away.

During our Christmas Eve service on the 24th, at 4 pm, please have a candle handy to light with everyone else when we do “Silent Night” at the end of the service.  This will be a shorter service, as we will only sing one verse of most of the hymns.  It will be the last service I lead within the sanctuary.  I wish people could be present, but that is not safe, so I look forward to welcoming you from your homes.

On Sunday, December 27th, we will sing a lot, virtually, from our homes.  I will lead the service from my house, and instead of a standard sermon, we will all be able to speak and share about our meaningful Christmas moments this year.

I look forward to virtually worshipping with you at these three upcoming services.

God Bless,

Pastor Nancy

SABBATICAL

Last summer, Pastor Nancy took a well-deserved Sabbatical.

In her absence, guest speakers filled the pulpit each Sunday, including some of our own members.  Below are a few pictures from those Sundays…

Progressive theology is shared in a moving, joyful and friendly worship experience.  Each service includes a Children’s Message, hymn singing, a variety of musical selections, and inspirational readings from many sources.

Open Communion is normally served on the first Sunday of every month.  Also, on the fourth Sunday of every month we share a potluck luncheon, to which everyone is invited.  Please join us even if you have not brought a food dish to share – there is always more than enough for everyone!

Read some of Pastor Nancy’s previous sermons here.

An elevator chair at the south door provides Disability Access to our sanctuary.

The nursery for children ages birth through 4-years old is available upon request in the church basement (just below the Sanctuary.)  Call the Church Office at (661) 822-4443, if you would like to make use of the nursery on Sunday.  Parents are also welcome to take their children there during church service, if necessary.  Plans are to install an audio feed, so that anyone in the basement will still be able to hear what’s going on in the Sanctuary.  A Children’s Message is provided in the worship service each week. After the Children’s Message, Sunday School is provided for all children ages 3 through Grade 7.
