Happy Sunday, Church!!

Worship happens primarily from my home this Sunday, with special music from Peter Hampton and Anna Bowman, who has played cello at our church once or twice before. I wrestled a lot with this passage, so I do hope that you’ll ready Karen’s Breathing the Scripture reflection, where she does a very nice job working through it.

Here is the Worship Service for this Sunday…

Here’s our Video for the FOURTH week of Compassion Camp/VBS

Our kids have been having so much fun! Hoping to have a blog post at some point to share some of the highlights of our virtual VBS. In addition to these videos, the kids have also been doing Yoga videos and craft project videos with Ms. Jacqueline and a weekly Zoom meeting together.
