Who We Are


Grace and peace be with you all!

In this unusual season, we are finding new ways to stay well physically, emotionally, and spiritually. 

Each Sunday at 9:30am our worship service is posted on our FaceBook page and YouTube channel. Direct links to these sites can be found on the the bottom of this page. Weekly worship materials (a bulletin order to follow) are available via the link on the right hand column of this page (“Sunday Worship Bulletins”); such materials will help you participate more fully each Sunday.  Please do make a commitment to join in this time of prayer, message, and music, expressing our connection to one another even in this very different fashion. 

Additionally, Pastor Hogan posts a brief reflection each morning– offering a simple word in the form of a prayer, a poem, or a story as a small offering for the day; and Music Director Gary Farquhar posts a midweek musical offering.  These are all posted on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.

Regular church news can be found under the links to “Weekly Newsletters: The Cornerstone,” and news from Pastor Hogan can be found under the links to “News from the Pastor.”  

On each Monday morning from 9:30 – 11:30 am, you are welcome to come to our sanctuary for individual prayer. See our Sanctuary Prayer Guidelines

On the first Sunday of each month, please join us in the church parking lot for Holy Communion, received in the safety of your car as the liturgy is shared via FM radio transmission.  See our Parking Lot Communion Guidelines



Hallelujah!  Anticipating a continued decline in covid cases in our area, beginning June 6th, each Sunday at 9:30 am we invite you to join us for worship outdoors, on the lawn beside the parking lot.  Here is what to expect:

Bring a chair with you (or use one we will make available to you).  You can put your chair on the lawn or on the edge of the parking lot; or, if you prefer, you can remain in your car and participate over FM radio.  

— When you arrive you will sign in your attendance and have your temperature checked.  All worshipers will need to have a waiver on file (see attached document if you have not already submitted one)

— All need to be masked, and households need to maintain a 6 foot distance from others

— The service will be about 30 minutes in length

If it rains, you can stay in your car and enjoy the service over FM radio, just like we do when we gather for communion In the parking lot.   Speaking of which: parking lot communion will continue on the first Sunday of each month at 4 pm, for the foreseeable future.  

We will also continue to provide online worship services each Sunday, for participants near and far.

Questions? Contact the Church Office.  

On behalf of your leaders I share that we join you in our eagerness to be together in person, and to do so with care for one another’s safety.  We hope to see you in June.
