Join Us Online for Worship

Sunday Worship 10:00 AM November 22, 2020

 

We may not be singing Auld Lang Syne, but it is New Years eve on the church calendar. A new church year begins next Sunday with the first Sunday of Advent. But this Sunday is a fitting close to a challenging year. The theme of thanksgiving and serving others reminds us that despite the Covid-19 restrictions and changes to our world, we have much to thank God for. Rev. Dr. Jessica McArdle will be preaching using Matthew 25 and we will sing the familiar Thanksgiving hymns It’s true that many of us will have a different Thanksgiving than usual this year, but when we are rooted in the church year our familiar worship can keep tradition alive in our hearts. We will be prerecorded this Sunday. Join us at 10:00 a.m. and praise God with your church community no matter where you are.

Divine Yoga

 

Chair Yoga

 

Nourish your mind, body and soul with some Divine Yoga. Join Christine Tresselt for two opportunities to practice yoga together, in community. Invite your family, neighbors, co-workers–it is open to all. Starting October 27th, take a mid-morning break for CHAIR YOGA, every Tuesday from 11:00am until 11:30pm. This can be a nice break, no matter what your day holds. Find a comfortable chair and gather a blanket, maybe blocks or a stack of books and a sofa pillow or two for a lovely, 30-minute chair-based flow.

Centering Prayer in the Reno Garden

Wednesday Mornings, 6:30-7:00 am

“Do not be afraid” Jesus says many times in the Gospels and his words resonate across the centuries and into this fall of 2020. There is much anxiety about the new school year, the upcoming election, a possible second wave of the virus… but our call as Christians is to lean into our faith and not give into fear so that we can be sources of love and hope in a world that needs all the love and hope it can get. One practical way of leaning into our faith, resting in God’s presence, and releasing fear is through the practice of Centering Prayer and meditation. We are inviting you to join us in person (with masks and socially distanced) in the Reno Garden early on Wednesday mornings for a time to sit together in prayer. We’ll begin with a reading, hold 20 minutes of silent prayer and then end with a closing prayer. Bring your own chair, stool, pillow or whatever meditation implement you need.
