We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, widowed, straight, gay, confused, well-heeled or down-at-heel. We especially welcome wailing babies and excited toddlers. We welcome you whether you can sing like Pavarotti or Taylor Swift or just growl quietly to yourself. You’re welcome here if you’re just browsing, just woken up or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury or haven’t been to church since Christmas 10 years ago. We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet and to teenagers who are growing up too fast.
We welcome keep-fit moms, hockey dads, starving artists, tree huggers, latte sippers, vegetarians, junk food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems, are down in the dumps or don’t like organized religion. We’re not that keen on it either. We offer welcome to those who think the Earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, or can’t spell. Whether you’re here because Granny is visiting or maybe you’re visiting gramma and she wanted to come to church. We welcome those who are inked, pierced, both or neither.
We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, those who had religion shoved down their throats as kids or got lost on the highway and wound up here by mistake. We welcome pilgrims, tourists, seekers, doubters and we welcome you.
Together in Worship:
Sunday Worship at 10:30am, fellowship, refreshments and worship in upper hall outside the sanctuary. Feel free to help yourselves to beverages and snacks before and during worship. We’re so glad you’re here.
We Grow and Learn Together
Noon – 1pm on Wednesdays – Every Wednesday at noon the Sanctuary remains open for Midweek Meditations – a quiet time and space in the midst of our busy world. Feel free to drop in for 10 minutes, 20 minutes, or even up to the hour.
Friday mornings at 10:30 am we gather together for an in-depth study of John 15. Membership is certainly not required, nor previous attendance. Please feel free to join us in this safe space as we dig deeper into the Word.
Spirited Discussions – is a monthly gathering outside the walls of the church. This is an informal get together that asks questions of living life in our communities while trying to follow God’s will and God’s Word. Join us at Wiggie’s in Caledonia from 7:45 – 9:15pm on Tuesdays
Together in Love
We pray for our community, our leaders, our faith family and those who cannot share our worship and activities in person. Please remember the Bachmanns, the McEacherns, Fern Peart, Shirley Smith, and others who are unable to get out as often as they wish. We also continue to hold in loving care and prayer the families who have lost loved ones recently.
Home Communion – For friends and family that cannot make it to worship services, Pastor Janice offers the Celebration of Communion at home. If you or someone you know would like more information, see Pastor Janice or any elder.
