Beginning in Lent, we are gathering once again in the sanctuary for “hybrid” in-person worship; Sunday services will be streamed online via Zoom. Our Ash Wednesday service is March 2 at 7:00 pm in the sanctuary; that service will not be streamed online.
You can view a recent worship service above and browse previous recordings at Vimeo. Use the link below to join us online.
Sunday Worship Live-Streamed on Zoom
10:30 – 11:40 am
Lent – 2022
Lent is a season of prayer, fasting and self-examination, to prepare for celebrating the resurrection of the Lord at Easter. It is a period of 40 days — like the flood of Genesis and Jesus’ testing in the wilderness. (Sundays in Lent are not counted as every Lord’s Day is a celebration of the resurrection.)
The response to Lola should include the points that taking out a mortgage needs the approval of the congregation at a congregational meeting and written approval by the presbytery. The response to Max might include the responsibility of the session for setting a budget and the need to account for upkeep of the church (e.g., a roof). The response could also note the need for presbytery approval if a loan is needed for the roof. The response to Jane would need to note that a lease for more than five years requires presbytery approval. The response to Franco would include how a basketball league might fit into the mission of the church. It is possible that a comment might be made about the exceptions to this chapter provided in G-4.0208 that apply to certain congregations. This will require a careful reading of that citation.
