Blessing of the Animals, Rev. Kent Matthies

Our Sunday service begins at 10:30am and we offer multi-platform worship. You can CLICK HERE to access the Sunday service on Zoom; we will begin admitting people at 10:20am. Or you can join us outdoors this Sunday and November 21 and then we will return to the sanctuary for the winter.

Bring your animals and pets to church! Really! We are having worship in the tent and will bless the animals. In doing so, we will be reminded that we, too, are blessed — by them. By their presence in our lives. We are bound to them in a spiraling, circling dance of affection. The more we give, the more we get. The more we share, the more we have. Such is the law of love.
