Ways to Help Others During COVID

 

Message from Gregory Knox Jones
"What will happen to us, to the creatures of the earth, and to the planet itself, if we do not learn to live in harmony with the natural world and find substitutes for fossil fuels?" Click here to continue reading the latest letter from Greg Jones dated Tuesday, April 20, 2021.

Ways to Help Others During COVID
The global impact of COVID-19 is unprecedented. For vulnerable populations – those who are homeless, hungry, out of work, living in communal settings – and for those living in vulnerable communities around the world, the effects of this crisis are even more devastating. They need our help more than ever.

Our sanctuary is open on Sunday mornings for one worship service at 9:00 AM. Attendance is limited and an online reservation (one per family) is required.

Bible Box for Children
Bible Box is back for a second semester! This creative and interactive YouTube series for children age 2 – grade 5 combines Bible stories, crafts, and music. Episodes will be uploaded each Sunday afternoon through the last week of April. Parents/Guardians who have signed up to participate may pick up their boxes at the front desk during our limited office hours (Tuesday – Thursday, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM). If you have questions about the program or would like to sign up to participate, please email Alexis Droke with "Bible Box" in the subject line.

Time with Our Children
Prior to COVID-19, every Sunday our congregation received a dose of joy when our children gathered up at the front of our sanctuary to hear and respond to a carefully-crafted, child-friendly message from one of our pastors. We wanted to continue offering these special messages for children in a safe way, so Time with Our Children has gone virtual. Be sure to check out these creative videos for your little ones on YouTube!
