ABOUT OUR CHURCH
We are people of God's extravagant welcome, who listen for the Stillspeaking God and insist that Jesus didn't turn people away. Neither do we.
We speak in contemporary ways because we affirm the responsibility of the church in each generation to make this faith it's own in reality of worship, in honesty of thought and expression, and in the purity of heart before God.
Through this gateway page, you'll find more about us, what we're all about, what our commitments are and how to contact us. No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you're welcome here!
Rev. Dr. Kate Lambertson, Pastor
35 'for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food or thirsty and gave you something to drink? 38 And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you or naked and gave you clothing? 39 And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’ 40 And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did it to me.’
Beginning in September, our Missions Committee will be initiating a new outreach to our community and a new opportunity for you to be part of the mission of this church. On Saturday, September 30, we will be hosting a monthly hot meal for our houseless neighbors. This outreach will continue on the last Saturday of each month until it is no longer needed or fizzles out due to lack of participation.
The plan is to meet in our CE Building at 3 pm to prepare sack lunches, and then to serve a hot meal at 5 pm. The sack lunches will be passed out following the meal so that our houseless brothers and sisters will also have something to eat on Sunday. Since all soup kitchens in the area serve free meals Monday through Friday, a food shortage is not as big of a problem during the workweek, which is why we will strive to fill the weekend gap once a month.
Our Missions Committee is praying that volunteers will sign up to donate food (both hot and cold for these meals) as well as help in the making of the sack lunches, setting up for the hot meal, serving the meal, and lastly, helping with the cleanup. Volunteers will be encouraged to sign up for one or more of these needs.
I hope you will check out the signup sheets in the narthex and prayerfully consider being a part of this new outreach. This is a beautiful way to connect with members of the church and community, and a wonderful way to serve Jesus by serving our neighbors in need!
