Feeling like life is a bit phony right now? Missing the “real thing” when it comes to authentic relationships and community? Well you’re in luck, because in today’s sermon we learn that “When he wants to end falsehood, God starts a neighborhood.” This is a communion service, so have the nearest thing to bread and juice nearby to celebrate the sacrament and keep your eyes peeled for a special treat right before the sermon!
This new sermon series is called, “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” following the life and times of Fred Rogers and what it looks like to be a good neighbor in the Bible.
As part of this new series we are going to be offering neighborhood prayer groups that meet in a front lawn near you. Check out the map below to see the neighborhood shepherds we currently have available. These shepherds are hosting the prayer groups in their front lawns one day a week. Even when you’re not able to meet in person, it is nice to know there is someone near you who cares. Now, more than ever, it’s good to know that when we can’t carry on, God’s family carries us.
If you look at the map below and you’re not sure which group you might fit in or you see that your neighborhood is currently marked as TBD please contact our Associate Pastor, Dave Hunsicker at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are finalizing these groups and he would be delighted to assist you.

Invite everyone to stand (or sit) in a circle in your front lawn with 6-ft distance between each family grouping. Families do not need to social distance, but should remain socially distant from others. These meetings are intentionally designed to be brief – so you do not need to provide chairs for the group.
We offer a small worship service at 10AM. Based on a congregational survey, we anticipate most folks to continue worshipping online – so we will continue to provide excellent worship resources and videos each Sunday for those at home. Together we are united in our commitment to one another and our commitment to Christ, whether worshipping in-person or online!
No reservation or permission is required to attend worship in the sanctuary. However, all participants must wear a mask (we will have some available for you!) and we request that you take your temperature and use the restroom before leaving your home.
The elders request that you make a careful and informed decision about the best way for you to worship in June. For those who intend to attend worship in person, please read the following guidelines carefully when making your decision.
For your convenience, here are all the links you need to participate in today’s service!
