Message        “What to do With the Sabbath” Dr. Keith Ray

Thoughts to ponder: I grew up in a community where work on Sunday was frowned upon. Jesus gets in trouble in today’s scripture lesson for breaking Sabbath.

What are we to make of the ancient Sabbath laws in our day and time, where we are in constant communication via iPhones and such?

Let’s consider if and how the Sabbath is a gift for us.


Prayers of the People

Closing Hymn and Offertory                            Potluck Hymn            



Shalom       (“May you be well and whole and in communion with all creation.”)

Shalom, my friends, Shalom, my friends, Shalom, Shalom.

                            Till we meet again, Till we meet again, Shalom, Shalom.


Please join us for our 1st Sunday Potluck Meal following worship service.

Jackie Moore has moved to the Terra Bella Marchbanks senior living facility. She is in room 201 and would love to have visitors.
You may have noticed the new glass “tip jar” on the piano at church that serendipitously came about when someone didn’t claim a flower vase. Feel free to drop in a dollar or five when you like the music during the service. Dave and Polly will donate the “tips” to a cause related to music, such as bringing music to schools.
Women’s clothing is needed for women coming out of incarceration. Good, gently used items please. All sizes.
The Bible Study Group (BSG) meets Mondays at 6:30 pm via Zoom. If you’d like to be added to the Zoom invite list then contact Cynthia at We’d love to have newcomers!


Doug Booth encourages everyone to volunteer at PAWS – there is something for everyone, from socializing with the dogs on-site to taking a dog to lunch to hosting weekend visits. There are many dogs at the facility who crave human interaction.  Additionally, don’t forget to bring in any donations of blankets to the church.
Karen highlighted that the Prayer Tree has been moved into the sanctuary. If you have a prayer request to add to the tree, write in on one of the provided tags and hang it on a branch.
Joanne reminds us all to keep up the food donations for AIM (Anderson Interfaith Ministries)!  Bring your non-perishable items to the church.  This is an on-going need that should become part of everyone’s shopping routine.
