wELCOME HOME TO WORSHIP!

We couldn't be more excited to announce that, beginning Sunday, October 4, Homecoming Sunday,  in-person Sunday morning worship will resume with outdoor services in the garden!  Weather permitting, each Sunday morning at 11:00 we will once again gather as the community of Christ to be strengthened and sustained in word and sacrament. These services will mark the return of full celebrations of the Eucharist on Sunday mornings after many months apart, providing us with plenty of reason to celebrate this year's homecoming!


As always, our table is open to all regardless of religious tradition.  However, because attendance will be limited, and to facilitate COVID-19 contact tracing, all who wish to attend are asked to register ahead of time.  

Please note that face coverings must be worn at all times, and proper physical distance must be maintained

between members of different households. 

In addition, only the bread will be offered, which is a wholly valid means of receiving the sacrament.  

Because singing has been proven to significantly spread the coronavirus, there will be no communal singing, 

with all singing being led by a cantor.

While we would love to stay and share in fellowship, there will be no coffee hour or social gatherings at this time.


For those unable to attend, Sunday worship will continue to be livestreamed on Facebook Live.

  • september 27, 2020 | the seventeenth sunday after pentecost

    Jesus’ parable about two sons who don’t do what they say reveals surprises in the reign of God. In the reading from Ezekiel the people claim the ways of the Lord are unfair, while God offers repentance and new life. Paul urges us to look to Christ as a model of humility, putting the interests of others above our own. Nourished by the broken bread and shared cup, we offer our lives for the sake of our needy world.

  • september 20, 2020 | the sixteenth sunday after pentecost

    Matthew narrates one of Jesus’ controversial parables in which Jesus says that the reign of God is like that of a landowner who pays his workers the same wage no matter what time of day they began to work. When God changes God’s mind about punishing Nineveh for their evil ways, Jonah is angry. Yet God is gracious and merciful, abounding in steadfast love. In baptism we receive the grace of God that is freely given to all. As Martin Luther wrote, in the presence of God’s mercy we are all beggars.

  • september 13, 2020 | The fifteenth sunday after pentecost


    In today’s second reading Paul questions why we judge one another, since we all stand before the judgment of God. Yet we do sin against one another, and Jesus’ challenge that we forgive seventy-seven times reveals God’s boundless mercy. When we hear the words of forgiveness in worship and sign ourselves with the cross, we are renewed in baptism to be signs of reconciliation in the world.

  • september 6, 2020 | The Fourteenth Sunday after pentecost

    Conflict is a part of relationships and life in community. Jesus' words in today's gospel are often used in situations having to do with church discipline.  The prophet Ezekiel tells of warning the wicked to turn from their ways, and Paul reminds us that love is the fulfilling of the law.  We gather in the name of Christ, assured that he is present among us with gifts of peace and reconciliation.

  • august 30, 2020 | The Thirteenth sunday after pentecost

    The prophet Jeremiah speaks of the incurable wound of his suffering yet finds in God’s words the delight of his heart. When Peter doesn’t grasp Jesus’ words about suffering, Jesus tells the disciples they will find their lives in losing them. Such sacrificial love is described by Paul when he urges us to associate with the lowly and not repay evil with evil. In worship we gather as a community that we might offer ourselves for the sake of our suffering world.

  • august 23, 2020 - the twelfth sunday after pentecost

    In Isaiah the people are bid to look to their spiritual ancestors as the rock from which they were hewn.  Jesus declares that the church will be built on the rock of Peter's bold confession of faith.  God's word of reconciliation and mercy are keys to the church's mission.  Paul urges us to not be conformed to this world, but to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice, using our individual gifts to build up the body of Christ.  From the table we go forth to offer our spiritual worship through word and deed.

  • august 16, 2020 - st. mary, mother of our lord

    Mary's role is not limited to giving birth to Jesus and mothering him in his childhood.  In John's gospel, she is among the women standing near the cross; in Acts, she is among the disciples awaiting the gift of the Spirit.  Through all that happened she continued to see how God was at work through her son, keeping the ancient promise to her ancestors, brushing aside the rich and powerful, and focusing on those as poor and powerless as Mary herself.

  • August 9, 2020 - the tenth sunday after pentecost

    Elijah finds the presence of God not in earthquake, wind, or fire, but in the sound of sheer silence.  When the disciples face a great storm on the sea, they cry out with fear. Jesus says: "Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid."  Amid the storms of life, we gather to seek The calm presence of Christ that soothes our fears.  In comforting words of scripture, God grants us peace and sends us forth to be a sign of God's presence to others.

  • july 19, 2020 - the seventh sunday after pentecost

    It is an age-old question: why is there evil in the world?  In the parable of the wheat and the weeds Jesus suggests that both grow together until the harvest.  With Paul, we long for the day that all creation will be set free from bondage and suffering.  Having both weeds and wheat within us, we humbly place our hope in the promises of God.
