A message from Rev. Dave
Today is the Last Sunday of Easter. Next Sunday is the first Sunday of Pentecost, often celebrated as the birthday of the church. I’d like to suggest we celebrate that birthday together.
Next Sunday (weather permitting), we will have church on the front steps! Bring a chair, we will have some available, but that way you have a seat! We will still need to socially distance a bit, the same restrictions we had before still apply – but don’t worry about your mask. If the weather does not cooperate, I will still be there and I invite you to come sit in the church with me. No formal service, we can meditate together, I will lead a prayer (or two). Inside we will still need our masks if we go this route – and then we will see where we can go from there!
This is perhaps a somewhat odd way to “do” church, but these are odd times and we will celebrate the birthday of the church together! Look for a more formal invitation on this early next week.
I look forward to seeing you next Sunday!
Alleluia! Christ is Risen!
The Lord is Risen indeed! Alleluia!
Yours in Christ,
