April 11, 2021 Virtual Worship Service – “The Building of a Nation”
The Rev. Dr. C.W. Dawson Jr. preached on “The Building of a Nation” in his sermon during our online worship service on April 11, 2021. He said our calling is not just to build a particular community, but to build a nation. Anti-immigrant bias, voter suppression, and continued racism, sexism and homophobia are contrary to the ideals upon which our country was founded. To build a nation, we need to embrace those ideals.
All in-person church gatherings are suspended because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Until further notice, we will gather online.
10 a.m. – Children’s Religious Education – Morning Tea Party
The children meet via Zoom and get a chance to see each other’s faces, say hi, and share a story together. Because all tea parties should feature pastries and fabulous attire, there are always optional muffin recipe and costuming suggestions for each Sunday. Zoom link.
10:30 a.m. – Online Worship Service
Green Sanctuary Team – Earth Day Service
The worship theme for April is nurturing beauty. On April 18 the members of the Green Sanctuary Team will offer prose, poems, music, pictures, videos, and even an activity to inspire you to use sight and sound to engage with the beauty of nature. We do this in the certain belief that we take better care of what we love, and that we can only love in relationship. Come, enjoy nature’s beauty with us and deepen your relationship with it.
