Wednesday Midweek Evening Prayer will be available on our Social Media Channels at 7 pm.
A Livestream of Sunday Worship will begin at 9:30 am.
Even though our times of worship will need to be limited to online only for a while, we are offering families or individuals an opportunity to sign up to spend 20 minutes or so in the worship space for a time of reflection and prayer alone or with Pastor Nate.Individuals may choose to receive Holy Communion if they desire. We are offering times on Thursday, Friday and Sunday mornings. Click here to let us know when it would work best for you and your family and we'll reserve the space for you.
Pastor Nate is offering the option of drive-thru communion for you and your family each Sunday morning from 8:30 - 11. We will practice all of the proper precautions that we can. You will receive sealed and pre-filled cups of wine and wafer along with a home communion liturgy to share with your family. We will and do trust that God is present and at work in and through the mystery of the sacrament of Holy Communion. We trust that in eating and drinking sin is forgiven, life & salvation are promised. If you would desire communion, you may drive thru the church parking lot at the specified times on Sunday morning.

We want to be together! We know that the end of social distancing may seem to be close to conclusion. As Governor Reynolds proclamation allows for churches to navigate through how to reopen, we are excited to be together soon…we hope.
The Executive Committee knows that there are many considerations to thoughtfully and prayerfully navigate through. Out of an abundance of caution, particularly for those vulnerable in our community (including staff and volunteers), we will continue to offer digital worship in the near future.
At the council meeting on Tuesday, June 23 the council voted to begin re-gathering for worship on July 12. We will gather outdoors and follow proper protocols and precautions. At risk individuals are asked to continue to worship with us online. We will continue to provide Online Worship on Sunday mornings as well. More information re. times etc. will be coming in the near future.
Summer Sermon Series: Luke & Acts
Living the Life of Jesus Yesterday & Today
Luke-Acts is one Gospel account which tells of the climax of the Bible's overall narrative. Written by the same author, they form one cohesive narrative about the life and ministry of Jesus and the birth of the early Church. These books catalog the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, the savior to whom all of the Old Testament prophecies pointed. Just as importantly, Luke-Acts also takes great care to point out how Christ fulfilled Old Testament prophecies.

A brush of Christmas in July
The first in a five-part series on the Gospel of Luke. We explore the amazing events surrounding the birth of Jesus.The humble conditions of his family and their low status in Israelite society foreshadow the upside-down nature of Jesus’ kingdom.
