June 15, 2021: Latest Message
from Gregory Knox Jones and
Ways to Help Others During COVID

 

Message from Gregory Knox Jones
"A couple in our church family recently escaped Delaware for a week and savored fresh scenery. While spending a few days on the coast of Georgia, they discovered a recently printed book by the Rev. Kate Buckley (a Presbyterian minister), and gave me a copy. The book is a compilation of brief blessings the pastor wrote during the pandemic."

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.

Racism Has a Cost for Everyone

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!
