  • Zoom Bible Study Wednesday 9 a.m.: A short Morning Prayer service is followed by a Bible Study each Wednesday at 9 a.m. on Zoom. Contact Pastor Jim Garey at prjim@yahoo.com to arrange for the Zoom invitation.
  • God bless essential workers
  • Neither yellow nor orange nor red nor grey can separate us from the love of God: In these difficult times, we playfully paraphrase the encouraging words of St. Paul to the church in ancient Rome: “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, neither things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.(Romans 8:38-39)

Are you seeking:

  • Meaning and purpose in life, where hope and love guide choices and actions?
  • A community of friends and fellowship where you can find support, care, respect and an opportunity to be heard?
  • Growth in faith and practical spiritual help for yourself and your family?
  • Ways to be of service to your community and the world for the sheer joy of giving?

So are we. Let’s do it together.
