Online Worship via Zoom
To protect the health of our members, friends, and guests we are worshiping virtually during the ongoing COVID‑19 pandemic, with occasional physically distanced outdoor services. We anticipate returning to in-person worship this coming fall. Sunday worship is streamed via Zoom. We also gather by Zoom for a brief morning prayer service on Tuesdays. You’re welcome to join us using the links below.
Tuesday Morning Prayer is adjourned for the summer and will resume in September.
Due to the weather forecast for Sunday 25 July, the in-person outdoor worship service is canceled; we will still meet via Zoom at the earlier time of 10:00 am.

Due to the July 4th holiday weekend, the monthly, contact-free, drive-by food collection in our parking lot on the first Saturday of each month from 9-11 am has been re-scheduled. The collection will be on Saturday July 10th from 9-11 am. Drive up to the front door, pop open your trunk, and volunteers will collect your donation.
The Food Pantry also needs 4-6 people from 7am to 11am to prepare and pack lunches and 4 people from 11am to 1pm to clean the kitchen. The program begins Tuesday, July 6th and will then run Monday – Thursday until July 29th. You can volunteer using the button below:
Jesus Calls Us – To Care for Creation
This 3 minute video encourages creation care, amidst climate change. We can choose to make a difference and answer the call of Matthew 25 to care for the least of these.
In The News
Our congregation’s history of food justice ministry and advocacy was featured in the April newsletter of Presbyterians for Earth Care. Our relationship with Farmer Dave’s CSA was highlighted, along with the Burlington Food Pantry and other ways we have made food justice an important part of our work and witness in Burlington.
Racism victimizes many people but has a unique impact on African Americans. Given the forms anti-Black racism has taken historically and currently, we state clearly: GOD LOVES BLACKNESS. This truth has been denied by too many for too long. We align with love and not hate; we reject racism and proclaim that God delights in Black lives.
