A word of thanks for your continued creativity and care in reaching out to one another and staying in touch. I am so grateful for the way that you are being the church for each
other. Please let us know of any pastoral care needs so that we may reach out in ways that we are able while we honor social distancing.
Please check out the Weekly Notes for all announcements for the week.

Call to Worship (Freddie Schrader, 2020 Graduate Sail High School)
God of Hope,
we come into your presence this morning
with confidence that you will meet us here.
Where there is sadness, bring joy;
Where there is tiredness, bring refreshment;
Where there is despair, bring renewed hope.
Let our homes be a sanctuary,
a safe haven for us,
a place for holy words and songs and prayers
as we devote ourselves to you.
We pray this in Jesus’ name Amen

give us strength for this and every day. Amen
