Good morning!  This page is intended to both serve as a continuing worship option for those participating in our worship service from home, and to serve in place of print resources during our in-person worship.  Following the worship service on Sunday, one or more video recordings from the service will be placed on this page, including the sermon.  This may take several hours, due to the time needed to process the videos.  We will email the congregation when the recordings have been posted.  If you would like to be added to our congregational email list, please contact


    • On Sunday, November 6, we invite you to join us for “Remembrance Sunday.” All are welcome to bring in Angels to be placed on our Angel Tree during the Advent and Christmas season, in remembrance of those who have passed away. 
    • Cookie and Candy donations and volunteers are needed for our Trunk or Treat event October 29th from 1-3pm. Sign ups are in the Narthex.
    • Backpack Pals are in  need of pudding cups, ramen noodles, and we ask that you continue to donate your plastic grocery bags. Thank you!

      Call to Worship

      We come to worship this morning, with anxiety lingering. 

      We come to worship this morning, with fear distracting us. 

      What is happening? 

      Will it be ok? 

      We come to worship this morning, just like Peter and the disciples. 

      We’ve had too little sleep, too much to do, and too much stress. 

      Do we really have to step out of the boat to meet you, Jesus? 

       “Come,” says Jesus. 

      “Take courage,” says Jesus.

      ALL:  Let us worship together and draw near to Jesus! 

      Matthew 14:22-33

      Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, but by this time the boat, battered by the waves, was far from the land, for the wind was against them. And early in the morning he came walking towards them on the lake. But when the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified, saying, ‘It is a ghost!’ And they cried out in fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, ‘Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.’

      Peter answered him, ‘Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.’ He said, ‘Come.’ So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came towards Jesus. But when he noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, ‘Lord, save me!’ Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, ‘You of little faith, why did you doubt?’ When they got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the boat worshipped him, saying, ‘Truly you are the Son of God.’


      Sharing Our Gifts


      We doubt, just like Peter. We doubt we have what it takes. We doubt we matter. We doubt our small offering is useful. But doubt keeps us from using our God-given imagination! Our gifts, when combined and wrapped up in some God-given imagination, can transform the world. What will we offer today? 


      One: When we are scared – like a child lost in a crowd, 

      trying to find the familiar face of a parent… 

      All: Look to Jesus and take courage in your life. 

      One: When we are nervous – like a new student’s first day, 

      finding our way to success in a new place… 

      All: Look to Jesus and take courage in your life. 

      One: When we are confused – like the disciples, 

      who listened to Jesus’ instructions in the boat… 

      All: We will look to Jesus and take courage in our lives!
