Welcome September! We resume in-person worship this Sunday, September 11 at 10 AM. After the long summer, I’m so excited to gather again in our beautiful sanctuary! We have ample space for social distancing, so the risk of spreading germs is minimal. Pastor Sandi is preaching. Her sermon title is Lost and Found based on this week’s lectionary Gospel text, Luke 15:1-10. We will revisit Jesus’ parables of The Lost Sheep and The Lost Coin. Hear all about how God and heaven’s angels take great joy in our transformation, our moving from lost to found, along this journey we call life. Of course we will also delight in the music of our own Larry Loeber, pray, and sing our beloved hymns.
On another note, fellowship has been good and ample through the summer because of Thursday afternoon Zoom calls and our fellowship brunches on each month’s first and third Sundays. With the resumption of worship, however, we will discontinue the Zoom calls and Sunday brunches. Be sure to thank Scott Greenwood for hosting Zoom these past few COVID years. Through our calls, we have developed even stronger connections as we checked in with one another during this very different time in which we live. Those of us in town over the summer also enjoyed our dining adventures. Because of their popularity, we plan to continue them in some form—maybe a monthly happy hour. Stay tuned for more info. See you soon!
