This Sunday's live stream will come from the sanctuary to ensure all our equipment works properly in that location. Please join us online as we aren't ready for the congregation to join us just yet. However, if you'd like to join us out on the lawn after the service for a time of socially-distanced, mask wearing fellowship in the open air, we'll see you there around 12:30 when we have our equipment taken down.

This Sunday's sermon will be based on Exodus 33:12-23 where we see how Moses rebuilds a shattered covenant with God and what that means for us. Sing favorite hymns with Sherry. Add to the comments your joys and concerns as you arrive or just say hello so we know who's here.

Meeting at the Well



Sermon for Sunday, March 15, 2020, based on John 4:7-14, the most complex story in the book of John, in which Jesus meets the Samaritan woman at the well. Life application connections made to the current coronavirus pandemic facing us all. This was an experiment (as so many pastors were making that Sunday) using Facebook Live for the first time. The recording you see here was made in parallel with that recording. That's why the angle and you see me looking between my computer screen (with camera and microphone) and my iPad with my sermon notes.
