There  are several ways we nurture or feed our spirits in our community.  We are working to stay connected during our current covid-19 epidemic, while we cannot worship together on Sunday mornings.  Pastor June has set up online worship for people and we have a phone tree to stay in touch with each other.

                           We celebrate the Church Year

We are all looking forward to worshiping together again when we can. Keep reading for how we worship and celebrate.

This is a way we remember the story of Jesus and his disciples throughout the year.  In this Christian tradition the cycle starts with Advent, the four weeks before Christmas.  Then there are the seasons of Christmas and Epiphany.  The next big season is Lent, the six weeks before Easter.  After Easter Sunday there is a season of Easter until the day of Pentecost and then a long Season of Ordinary Time until the next Advent.  As we enter each Season we will share here ideas about its meaning and purpose.
