Blessings to you all, I believe there were about 145 – maybe 175 people who took advantage of last week’s semi-sacred skiing dispensation. You are all welcome. This Sunday – NO DISPENSATION. No more light and fluffy pastor – I am serious - and I might even mean it. Just sayin. This Sunday will be an eventful Sunday. I will leave it at that – for now. Beyond that – are focal text will be the annual mountain top experience of the Transfiguration from Matthew 17:1-9. This is the last Sunday before Lent. The sermon title is: “Listen Up.” I would like to invite the congregation to help me out with some stories or teachings of Jesus. What is your most meaningful – or one of your most mea

A Dispensation

Blessings to you all, This weekend looks like it will be great holiday weekend with Sunday right in the middle of it. If you are a skier – and are tugged to the hills this weekend – I have been authorized by the sheer virtue of my authoritative position – to offer dispensation to anyone wishing to enjoy God’s creation in the snow instead of worshipping with a loving, caring, vitally compassionate family of faith here in this little city in the valley.

This Sunday we will receive our annual OGHS (One Great Hour of Sharing) offering. This is an ecumenical effort to provide funds to address suffering around the world.

When is it now?

Blessings Faith Family, This Sunday we will gather to share in Communion. We will also share in the Affirmation of Ministry as we recognize, dedicate and affirm the ministries of those newly elected officers and committee members who will be serving this church for 2017.
