Lent Schedule

The Season of Lent is our annual opportunity to pause, listen and reflect. It’s a chance to let go of things that distract us from our faith walk, to listen to God’s call, and to put our lives in perspective. Join us as we heed the call of the prophet Joel to return to the Lord “with all your heart.” (Joel 2:12)

Nursery Caregivers Needed

We offer Nursery care for infants and children up to kindergarten age during both worship services.

Currently we are providing this care through the generous support of volunteers. We need at least one adult and then a second adult or youth (6th-12th grader) each of these Sundays. 

Caregivers may opt to work one service or both, arriving 15 minutes before the worship service.

In order to allow all of our volunteers time to participate in their own Sunday school instruction, Coffee & Conversation, Chat & Chew or volunteer with leading Sunday school, we are not offering nursery care during the Sunday school hour. However, families are welcome to use the nursery during this time if they have infants through 3 years old and a parent stays with them in the nursery.

We ask all families using the nursery to take a turn helping in the nursery, as well as others from the congregation to aid in support as we all do our part in our church family’s Christian Formation and help in the promises we make at Baptism! Thank you in advance!

Dear Saints


“The Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” – 1 Samuel 16:7b

Dear Saints, How long does it take to make up your mind about someone? Research suggests that a first impression takes only about 7 seconds to form, while one study says that most people can assess someone in as little as 0.1 second. Of course, it takes much longer than that to really know a person; but it takes no time at all to judge them. Whether we know it or not, we judge, assess and categorize everyone we meet. That’s human nature; we are wired to make judgments on other people, as it helps us better understand ourselves. But with Christ in our heart, we can learn to rely less on split-second assessments and more on true understanding of character.

In 1 Samuel 16, it’s the prophet Samuel’s job to judge. He has been sent to the house of Jesse to “size up” all of his sons and determine which one God will name as king. At first sight, Samuel assumes that the eldest of Jesse’s strapping sons would fit the bill, but God’s criteria are more than skin-deep. God asks Samuel to see beyond first impressions and to look for character instead. He says, “The Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” The Lord helps Samuel see that David, the youngest and smallest, had what it would take to shepherd God’s people.

At Tuesday’s community Lenten service, Rev. Clinton McPherson from Greater Goodwill AME implored us to reject stereotypes, turn away from prejudice and refuse to accept the negative views of one another the world tries to impose on us. It is in the interest of the world to divide, degrade and denigrate, but we have the power of God to do otherwise. We have the Holy Spirit of peace who helps us see beyond the surface, and into the heart. It has been such a blessing to spend these Lenten Tuesdays together with our neighbors, learning to go beyond first impressions and into real relationship. With God, through God, we don’t have to judge based on appearances, but we look to the heart.
