Lent began on Wednesday, Feb. 17 (Ash Wednesday). We did not have in-person Ash Wednesday services, due to Covid-19 restrictions. But Pastor Buddy began a weekly Lenten Bible Study on Ash Wednesday. The pre-recorded video sessions are available on Facebook and on our website, posted every Wednesday. Audio versions are available on Sermon by Phone at 1-423-226-6437 and on our usual podcast sites: Buzzsprout, Stitcher, Google, etc.
Sunday worship services are available online, in the parking lot and in person to all mask-wearing social distancers at 11 a.m. To hear the most recent service: call (1-423-226-6437), use the Facebook link to Buzzsprout, or go to the Worship Highlights web page.
The Monday Community Meals began on Feb. 1 and are “to go” only. Meals may be picked up 4 – 6 p.m. There is no charge, but donations are gratefully accepted. Contact Evelyn Stemmann or Sheppie Dunn, if you’d like to help.
This is the second Sunday in Lent and here is the bulletin, easily downloadable in PDF format. PLEASE NOTE: Instead of what is printed in the bulletin, today’s Scripture is John 6:16-21 and the sermon title is “Overboard with Trust.”
The Sonshine Sunday School class has written “Meditations for Advent and the New Year” and would like to share it with the congregation. Copies will be available in the church vestibule. Or you can download it in PDF format now.
We still do not know when we will be permitted to return to our sanctuary for Sunday worship, due to the coronavirus restrictions. Meanwhile, we will continue to offer online worship experiences. You can find them on this site on ourWorship Highlightspage or link to them via Facebook or https://www.buzzsprout.com/197301
You can also call in to hear the service from any phone at any time at: 423-226-6437.
From time to time we mention special resources that seem particularly pertinent to our Copper Basin communities or to the mission of our congregation. Today’s suggestion is Senior Housing for Low-Income Residents. We are grateful to Joan King for bringing it to our attention.
