WORSHIP THIS WEEK
We continue to offer worship both in person and via livestream. Please join us in whatever way fits your comfort level and risk tolerance. Masks are required inside the church building, and we urge you to use the livestream if you have any symptoms, even if you’ve had a negative test. (Share the love of God, but don’t share whatever is causing those symptoms!)
This Sunday we encounter the aftermath of Jesus’ hometown sermon. (Spoiler alert: The locals are NOT happy.) It’s a good time to consider how Jesus challenges us. When – and why - do the teachings of Jesus agitate us? If you are joining via livestream, tune in for the service here at 10:00 on Sunday: https://youtu.be/PfUlBifzA4o
PAUSE & PRAY: Join us Wednesdays at 7:00pm on Facebook for prayer and reflection. https://www.facebook.com/gloriadeichatham
We are grateful for our relationship to the wider church.
“For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another.” Romans 11:4-5
“The Church is not a building, the Church is not a steeple, the Church is not a resting place — the Church is the People!”
