For our Country:
Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage: We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favor and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord and confusion, from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hears with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

We welcome all to our 10:30 service each Sunday. Please continue to mask and sit in the rows that are not roped off. We look forward to a continued loosening of these restrictions as concerns about the pandemic lessen.We are planning a church picnic at the lake on August 15. More details to follow.

New Format for Partnership Worship
Since March 2020, hundreds of people across the partnership have gathered for online worship on Sunday mornings. Originally, the partnership planned to offer this service only until congregations could once again gather in their buildings. But a community has formed, and there is interest in continuing to gather online.
Beginning May 30 and continuing at least through the summer, a new half-hour worship service will be offered on Sundays at 9 a.m. The format will be a Zoom Meeting, which means participants can choose to have their cameras and microphones on to see and speak with one another. Preachers and worship leaders will be chosen from across the partnership. Once a month, the service will focus on prayers for reconciliation and healing.
Email Gabrie'l Atchison firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a weekly email reminder with the Zoom link and readings.
