Some diligent workers cleaning up the church yard after service, of debris from the recent heavy rains.

This past Sunday we studied scripture from Romans 13: 8-14.  We need to love one another. Paul wanted us to remember the commandments. We need to love your neighbor as yourself. Pastor Sandi told us that we need to put on the armor of light, not in quarreling or jealousy.

Pastor Sandi reminded us of the song, What’s Love Got to do With it?  We need to remind ourselves to open our hearts and not let feelings hold our heart in anger.

Paul defined Christian love as respect.  It is ongoing.  We need to love through hurt and frustration.  We do wrestle with actions of others. People hurt us, and God helps us through.  There is evil in this world, but we individually can’t take it all on.  God has to help us figure it out.

Many of us participated in Yates County Hope Walk on 8/28/21.  All monies stay in our county to help cancer patients. What a great event!

On 9/18/21 Yates County will be having a county-wide road cleanup.  Please mark your calendars to help.  We will be participating in our two-mile stretch on 54-a of our Adopt-a-Highway on that day for one of our church missions.

We continue with both in-person and Zoom church on Sundays at 9:00am.  See you here!
