This Sunday’s worship will not contain the elements of surprise and suspense that last Sunday’s did. (Zoom was having problems and we ended up worshiping at 2:00 pm) It will be prerecorded and contain familiar elements. Hymns and prayers – familiar yes, but accomplished with the help of many hands – one set is Jeffrey’s on the organ. It is Ascension Sunday. The sermon, though, will be based on the 17th chapter of John – Jesus praying for his disciples in anticipation of his not being with them for much longer. A highlight will be our Postlude which is “I know my redeemer liveth” from Handel’s Messiah and sung by Susan Navien. We hope you will join us at 10:00 am.

It is important that we hold one another in prayer during this time. Prayer requests can be read at our Sunday online worship service. We also maintain a prayer list in our weekly email newsletter. Please indicate whether you’d like to have your prayer request read in the church service or simply put on the list.

Please join us for our “virtual” ANNUAL SPRING TEA
Wednesday, May 27, 2020 2 PM-2:50 PM
Bring your own tea cup with some tea to sip.
Show us your tea cup on camera so we can see your smiling face and your favorite cup or mug – fancy, well-worn, stained, chipped, brand new or antique – we’d love to see them all. Dress for the occasion if you would like to. Fancy shirt, jacket or sweater? Tie, scarf, or hat?
We will attempt to take a group photo of everyone on screen with their tea cups in hand. We will invite a handful of people to share any story they might have about their tea cup.
And we will have short program of photos, music, poetry, and prayer. We hope you will join us from wherever you are!
Hosted by: Health Minister Kathleen Zagata and the Ministry Team with help from the Spring Tea planning team: Christine Atkins, Anne Hoenicke, Sarah Marino, Keith Russell and Zoomketeers Bruce Alexander and Andy Spiegel.
