Our greatest priority is the safety and well-being of our neighbors and members of our congregation. Our actions impact the world around us so practicing physical distancing is not only necessary but it is an act of kindness and love. To paraphrase a verse from the Talmud, "Anyone who saves one life it is as if she has saved the whole world."
Rev. David F. Peters, Minister


A Prayer for these days:
Holy God, every present with us, we are mindful of these times in which we live. Uncertainty, anxiety, and fear are present among us as we listen to and care for one another in these days. We ask that your peace and healing presence be with us, as we pray for and hold each other in love. We ask your guidance and direction as we live out your command to love one another as we are called to love you. In the name of the one who has called us and prepared us for these challenging days, we pray. Amen. (courtesy of  Rev. Donald Remick)


 



An Important Pastoral Letter on the Coronavirus is HERE (Link)


During these days of heightened awareness and vigilance

about the Coronavirus - we are reminding everyone 

that the best first step is good handwashing frequently.


We are also asking everyone to modify their greetings

to not include handshaking at this time.

Nod, smile and voice a greeting, or bump elbows

if you wish.


Together, using good practices, we can still show love and care for one another

until we can get a handle on this spreading virus.
