Breakfast and egg hunt 8:30
Worship Service 9:00
We have begun gathering in-person again!
Bill Casady leads our worship music and we praise God using a relaxed liturgy and sincere study of the Word by Pastor Diane Ludington.
Liturgy, is a church-word, but it is an important part of how we gather. Liturgy means literally, the work of the people. In practice, it means how we form our worshipful response to God.
First, we prepare our hearts in gathering prayers and music.
Second, we hear the Word with ears and hearts.
Third, we respond with gifts of service and resources.
Fourth, we carry the word into the world by the way we live.
If you have never experienced a liturgical service, or if it has been a while, I invite you to come, worship in this guided flow that offers a mix of quiet contemplation and communal rejoicing.
Join us in the sanctuary at at 9:00 Sunday mornings or worship with us online in partnership with Warsaw United Presbyterian Church 10:30 Sunday morning on Zoom

A Prayer for Lent
Holy God, when Jesus cried and breathed his last
you tore away the ancient curtain
between heaven and earth, life and death.
As we turn to face the cross,
show us Jesus, in his suffering and glory,
that we may believe and have eternal life;
through Christ, our Son, our Savior. Amen.
Join us for worship at 9:00 Sunday morning
We have a casual style and worshipful attitude and a classic four-fold order:
we gather in humility
we hear the Word in sermon and song
we respond with commitment and communion
we bear witness in the world
Come to the table, celebrate communion on the first Sunday each month.
COVID-19 worship adjustments include:
distancing upon entering, exiting, and within the sanctuary
humming rather than singing
masks as each one is comfortable
no passing trays for offering or communion
smiles from a distance
