The RES group and a few others volunteered by helping put together the church's playground this weekend. They put the swing set back up, mulched, and put up the timbers. They donated several hours of their Saturday morning to do it and it looks awesome thank you all!

It's easy.Do you remember the song “Up on the Roof” from the early 1960’s? This song stands the test of time because the lyrics attest to our human condition. It begins, “When this old world starts getting me down and people are just too much for me to face, I climb way up to the top of the stairs and all my cares just drift right into space.” I imagine these words hit home for many of us as we have faced various challenges and changes in 2020. We wish our cares would just drift away. Heartache weighs heavily on us. Heartache for the people who contracted Covid 19, who got sick, and died, as well as for those who are lonely as they shelter in faith for safety. Our hearts ache for our black and brown neighbors who face injustice and for police officers who are stereotyped based on the inappropriate actions of some officers. In truth, we must not allow ourselves to drift away but to “Think about the things above and not things on earth. . . When Christ, who is your life, is revealed, then we also will be revealed with him in glory.” (verses from Colossians 3) Christ is with us when we are up or down transforming us for this new life and world. Through this transformation we know joy, even in times of distress. Christ promised to make our joy complete.  Pastor Libby
