Staying Connected

 

During this time of uncertainty and the inability to meet together as a congregation, it is important for us to have ways to stay connected with each other.  

All church activities including worship service, rehearsals, and meetings have been cancelled through April 5 (Palm Sunday).  However, we created this page as a way for the church staff to share messages and videos with the congregation.  Please check back frequently for new text and video messages and announcements of ways we as a congregation are staying connected.

 

Virtual Programs to help us stay connected as a congregation:

Pastor Erin created a Friday Prayer page to share prayer concerns and to invite us to gather remotely on Friday evenings for a time of prayer.

Pastor Erin created a Trinity Action Calendar with suggested activities for each of the weeks in April.  See how many of these you can complete.

Links to resources for meditation and staying connected:

Nicole's Friday mid-day devotion based on her Lenten Photo a Day journal

Wilderness Display poems for meditation

Daily prayers from the UMC New England Conference to help folks stay connected during this time of uncertainty due to the coronavirus.
