We pray that you all weathered Hurricane Delta safely. At this time the church is without power. WE WILL STILL HAVE WORSHIP SERVICE TOMORROW MORNING AT 10:30. However, we will hold our Children's Sabbath Celebration at a later date. If you join us for service, dress comfortably due to no air conditioning. We will attempt to live stream the service here on Facebook. Due to no internet, Zoom will NOT be available for the service tomorrow. Please let Brother Walter know if you need anything! Be safe and check on one another. May the Lord bless you and keep you all!

If Jesus' birth were happening today, and if Jesus were preaching that we should love and welcome refugees, or join the cry for racial justice for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, or to provide universal healthcare for all, where would you stand? Are we willing to rethink Advent and reach out to the Jesus of the refugees, the poor, and the marginalized, so that we may finally walk in the Light of Christ? Are we ready to examine this story of our faith in new ways and respond to God's call for justice and joy, even if we are called to make significant changes in the ways we pray, love, give, speak out and act?

The General Commission on Religion and Race offers these worship resources to help pastors, preachers, Christian educators, and worship leaders guide your congregation or faith group through the time of reflection, anticipation, renewal, and joy that is the gift of the Advent Season.

October is traditionally Pastor appreciation month. Here's an example of ways we can pray for our Pastor throughout this month.
Matthew 22:37
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Proverbs 3:5-6
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
