A Message from Council President Mike Hix (Jan 12, 2021)

Dear Friends,

As we continue to wrestle with this pandemic, we are hopeful that the
COVID-19 immunization rollout will gather momentum and we look forward
to the day when we will be able to gather again for worship, fellowship,
and service.  Until then, we must continue to look for creative ways to
live out our baptismal life as a congregation.

Your Congregation Council was encouraged that 22 people participated in
the drive-by communion on Christmas Eve; so, Pastor Phil has agreed to
duplicate that effort on the first Sundays of February and March.  In
addition, our congregation's constitution requires us to distribute our
2020 Annual Reports during February.  Next month also brings Ash
Wednesday and the beginning of Lent on February 17.  Who would have
thought that we would have two consecutive Lenten seasons affected by

Please save the following dates/times on your calendars and plan to
participate as you are able --

Sunday, February 7:  11 AM - 12 noon -- Drive-by Communion and 2020
Annual Reports distribution
Wednesday, February 17:  4 - 5 PM  -- Drive-by Imposition of Ashes for
Ash Wednesday
Sunday, March 7:  11 AM - 12 noon -- Drive-by Communion

Finally, with the number of interactions among members of our
congregation being greatly reduced, it has become difficult for Pastor
Phil to be aware of pastoral care issues.  If you need of pastoral care
or know others in our community of faith who may need pastoral care,
please do not hesitate to contact Pastor Phil.

Take care.  Be safe.


We are a small church, but big in Grace, Hope and Love! We gather each Sunday at 11:00 am for worship and a celebration of Holy Communion, that is the spiritual bread our bodies need to live. All are invited to join us at the Lord's table to be fed by his heavenly food, so please join us. There are no strangers in God’s house, and if you choose to worship with us, we would be honored by your presence.
After the service we would like for you to stay for fellowship with coffee and refreshments.
