Peacemaking – Minute for Mission September 25, 2016

Next Sunday we will have the annual special collection for Peacemaking and Global Witness, a collection that is taken up, so suitably, on World Communion Sunday, as we think of our bonds in faith and our responsibilities across the worldwide community.

The collection is for Peacemaking and Global Witness. And peace is an integral part of our worship every week. Every Sunday we share the peace, turning to each other and speaking of peace to our neighbors, to members and visitors alike, wishing that they may experience peace, that they will live in peace. And at the end of the worship we may leave the sanctuary with the words of the benediction and charge in our ears, ‘Go in Peace!’ Peace becomes the message of what we will have heard and done that morning.… Continue

Intro to Worship Music

Our Intro to Worship Music class is open to all ages from infant to adult.  The group does not rehearse for performance purposes – only for congregational singing.  This is a helpful introduction for adults, youth, and children who would like to learn more about how to sing from the sheet music of a hymnal and follow along with lyrics in a bulletin, or simply to familiarize themselves with the tunes to be sung in worship that day. The class meets in the choir room from 10:30 – 10:45 a.m. on most Sundays from September to June.

Columbus House – Minute for Mission September 11, 2016

So what’s on the menu? How about…Meatball & Eggplant Grinders

No, this is not today’s menu for the Rally Day picnic shortly. In fact, I believe we are getting a whiff [or we will be shortly] of the charcoal grills warming up to serve hamburgers, veggie burgers and hot dogs.

Here’s another menu…BBQ Chicken and Ice Cream Sandwiches

Now that sounds like a delicious meal. And this is an actual menu for a dinner served by volunteers from this congregation to serve 80 … at Columbus House. Personally, I love the ice cream sandwiches – that’s inspired.

How about another…Hot dogs

Now that’s a simpler menu.… Continue

A Gift In Memory of Jim Tenney

Those who come to church this Sunday, September 4th—our last summer worship in the Miller Building–you’ll see and hear something surprising and wonderful: a grand piano! Debbie Tenney has generously donated to the church her August Förster German piano, which is 25 years old, and in perfect condition. She is giving the piano in memory of her husband Jim, who devoted many years of service to the church as a bass in our choir. Come to our worship service this Sunday, and hear the new piano in its new home!
