"Be Still," is our Lent theme. As St. Paul offers online worship tomorrow at 9:15 am,
I pray God draws you into stillness and gives what God promised: a profound awareness that God is God and that God is love.
Worship aids, a prayer list, and announcements are included below. 

Stillness is the move
  • from seeking control to surrendering it
  • from blaming to grieving
  • from numbing to waking up to your vulnerability and true God-given power
  • from me to we

In-person worship is suspended and the building is closed at least through Monday, April 6, but ministry continues in Christ's name. You get to invest in calling people to worship, feeding hungry people, and nuturing a sense of community and hope despite the isolation and uncertanity. Your gifts mean even more now, in these economically chaotic times. 

Many are suffering. Many are dying. Much is being lost. But Easter is coming. God brings life from the dead, and Christ's resurrection is our resurrection. Your offering proclaims that good news. 
Give Now
Finally, take a moment to imagine where you sit in the sanctuary. Who sits in front of you? Who sits behind? Beside you? Commit now to calling one or two of these brothers and sisters in Christ today. It is the fellowship that for many of us that fills worship with joy and consolation. You can give and receive those gifts even now.
