December 24th Updates

Zoom Gathering after Sunday Service

As more and more of us are joining worship from our homes, we wanted to offer a space for us to see one another and hear from one another.  For every Sunday in Advent, we will be meeting on Zoom immediately following the service.  This will include time to just say hi and chat, a few questions for conversation, and some breakout rooms for deeper conversation with a smaller group.  I look forward to seeing you after services on Sunday:

Fireside Conversations

2021 brings not just a new year, but also a renewed opportunity to gather.  Starting every Monday at 1:30 we will be gathering by the fireplace and on Zoom to share and discuss whatever may be on your heart or mind.  Feel free to drop in here and there or attend weekly or invite someone new.  There is no topic off limits as we conspire about what Jesus is about.  For 2021, any remaining time in the hour will be focused on Practicing the Way of Jesus.  We will go through every command of Jesus and wrestle with how we can obey them here and now.  For more questions, contact Pastor Joseph (  Zoom meeting link –, meeting ID – 812 3608 7134


Natural Disaster Relief

You may have just seen pictures from Hurricanes Eta and Iota.  Did you see those from Typhoons Gone and Vamco? Across the world, natural disasters are devastating communities.  The United Methodist Committee on Relief or UMCOR is one of the best long term recovery agencies in the world.  If your heart breaks over these natural disasters or other worldwide areas of concern, please keep them in your prayers and if you are able, give through these avenues.
