He is Risen!

by SLPAGE

It is almost Easter once again!  We have welcomed Jesus with the waving of palms on Palm Sunday and celebrated in the upper room with Jesus and his disciples in the breaking of the bread and drinking of the cup.  Now we wait. We wait because we know that this is only part of the […]

Holy Week Approaches

by SLPAGE

The Lenten season is a time for reflection, study, and claiming that which calls us to fall short of God’s expectations for us.  As we approach Holy Week, our focus changes to the story which calls us once again to live into the calling of Christ on our lives.   We take time, once again to […]

The Lenten season has begun!

by SLPAGE

The Lenten season has begun!  This week we gathered in our chapel for our Ash Wednesday service.  We sang songs, read scripture, shared prayer, and left to go into the world with ashes on our foreheads or the back of our hands.  The imposition of ashes signifies our recognition of our mortality and our ability […]

A Pastor’s Perspective

Words can’t really express the deep gratitude that Nancy and I have experienced at your outpouring of care and love after the death of my mom last month.  It has truly been heartwarming!  Thank you for all the hugs, cards, and memorial gifts.  It is great to be part of such an amazing faith community!  […]

The holidays are coming

by SLPAGE

As we turn the corner from Halloween and All Saints day, we move quickly to Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas, and then a new year begins. Add into that an election cycle that has created a more us vs. them mentality than I can ever remember, and it can seem a bit overwhelming.  Without exception, though, […]

A Moment for Spirit

by SLPAGE

A moment for Spirit.  It’s a new part of our worship service!  We might call it something different later on, but for right now, it is a moment for us to experience God’s presence in a new way.  So far, we have experienced Sue Dutton playing the hammered dulcimer, and Nancy Fuchs sharing a World […]

Thanks Guys!

by SLPAGE

Over two years ago, the men’s group of our church decided they needed to clean out their garages, storage units, and backyard sheds and have a “tools and toys sale. They invited others to do the same. After a few knee replacements, snowbird migrations, and calendar issues, the guys pulled it off. They picked up […]
