A Word 

Psalm 71: 18 Now that I am old and my hair is gray, do not abandon me, O God! Be with me while I proclaim your power and might to all generations to come.

This prayer has added meaning in these day when we who are older are described as “especially vulnerable to COVID-19.”

A Prayer

God of Love, For all who are homeless, for all who are incarcerated, for all entrusted with the care of the vulnerable, we  pray this day. May they be given what they need when they need it most. Amen.


We are especially appreciative of your support during these uncertain times. You can send your contributions to the church as we are checking the mail. You can also give on line.
