This Month’s


May Worship Happenings
What a blessing it is as we continue to see more and more people returning to worship! Safety protocols are still in place, and we will continue to do all that is necessary to keep one another safe when we worship together as the body of Christ. Livestreaming worship will also still be offered. Continued great things are planned for upcoming worship experiences!
May 2 will include Holy Communion, with the continued use of the prepackaged communion cups. That same day will also mark Disability Awareness Sunday, as an opportunity to celebrate the inclusion of all into the family of the church.
The Hi-Lo Ringers will be part of worship on May 9, and we’ll pray for the important women in our lives on Mother’s Day.
Our “Living the Dream” sermon series will continue until its conclusion on May 16.
May 23 is Pentecost Sunday. We celebrate the birthday of the Church and the gift of the Holy Spirit. We will take some time to pray for the blessing of our Confirmation class. And we will start a new sermon series, appropriate for Pentecost and the season after, “Soul on Fire.”
May 30 is Trinity Sunday. Because it will also be Memorial Day weekend, we will lift our hearts to God in thanksgiving for all who have sacrificed themselves for others. The Chancel Choir will offer a special anthem at the 9:00 hour.
Looking ahead, June 6th will be Music Sunday. The role of music ministry in the worship life of our congregation will be a special focus as we worship and praise God together.
Let’s worship together in the Spirit and in truth!
