We are a Welcoming & Affirming Congregation:

Worship Each Sunday is live streamed beginning at 10:00 a.m.

Donations can still be made to our Uganda Crisis Relief Project. Every $10 raised helps provide a wash bucket, soap, two face masks, and food for a family.


 Hello friends,

I hope you have all enjoyed the Beguiled by Beauty series. This week we are back to the lectionary in the ordinal season after Pentecost. Our scripture reading is Romans 8:12-25, and we will be celebrating inclusive relationships with God and each other. Our Threshold moment will include a short video that I took in Malawi with sweet preschool children singing about Jesus.

If you have short (30 seconds to 1 minute) videos that you have taken and would like to share for a threshold moment, please send them to me. I am looking for videos that bring joy.

         We will begin a new book study in about two weeks on Tuesday afternoons. This will give time for people to get the book, Engaged Spirituality:Ten Lives of Contemplation and Action by Janet Parachin. The lives include: Howard Thurman, Simone Weil, Elie Wiesel, Marian Wright Edelman, Thich Nhat Hanh, Rigoberta Menchu, Vine Deloria Jr., Joanna Macy, Rabindranath Tagore, and Dorothy Day. Let me know if you are interested in joining this group by Zoom.

         I have asked if Mendocino Books can get them. They are checking. Here is a link to find the book on Amazon.

Thank you to everyone who responded to the survey last week about reopening plans. If you would like to take part and did not get the survey in your email, please let me know. Someone can call you for your answers. We are continuing to watch how our county is doing with COVID 19 infection rates. We want to make sure we are well prepared and doing what we can to keep everyone safe, including waiting longer if necessary. Online worship will still be available and recommended as the safest way to worship during the pandemic.

Join us for worship at 10:00 am on Facebook

Social hour happens on Zoom. Contact me for the link or phone number to join us. I hope to see or hear from you there.

Have a good week. Find time to recognize your gratitudes and enjoy some natural beauty. Stay well, my friends.
