Upcoming Sunday Sermon Topic
Sunday, June 7, 2020 @ 10:30amBy Reverend Michael Walker
In the past, there were no services on the day of the Annual Congregational Meeting. Thinking we would be attending church in-person, Rev. Mike suggested to the Sunday Services Committee and the Board that we should have a service every Sunday of the year. Imagine a visitor arriving for the first time, only to find we had no service. The compromise we made was to have a shorter than usual service, followed by the Annual Meeting at noon. Even though we are meeting virtually now, this is still our plan.
Today, we contemplate the importance of community, connection, and compassion in our lives and in the church. As a source of support that is the foundation of who we are, especially in the age of COVID-19, we have learned that the church is its community, more so than a building. Some have been saying, “No, the church is not closed; the building is closed.” Indeed, the church is its people, and may it ever be so.
