"God has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" Micah 6:8
We have been changed by life during a global pandemic. Our behaviors, attitudes and perspectives have all changed by what we’ve been through. We want to return to ’normal,’ but we can never go back to the way things were, and that’s a good thing: we’re not the same people we were, before the pandemic. We’ve learned and we’ve grown. We have new questions about life, faith and God.
We have been transformed by the love of Jesus. Through the pandemic, God never abandoned us. God always meets us right where we are, in suffering, in chaos, in desperation and in joy. God in Christ Jesus understands the burdens we carry, and the many ways that people hurt us. Life may change us, but the love of Jesus transforms us, bringing us into the joy of eternal life with our loving, merciful God.
You are already loved by God, but we invite you to be transformed by that love. We welcome and accept you just as you are, made in God’s holy image. Join us for worship, Christian faith formation, fellowship and service to our community, as together we proclaim God’s unconditional love and forgiveness to all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity or sexual preference.
Come and be transformed by God’s love as together we do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with God.
Peace to all here,
Rev. Monica Weber, Pastor
