From the Book of Common Worship.

A Prayer at the Time of an Election

Under your law we live, great God,

and by your will we govern ourselves.

Help us as good citizens

to respect neighbors whose views differ from ours,

so that without partisan anger,

we may work out issues that divide us,

and elect candidates to serve the common welfare;

through Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen.

When we gather again -

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
