Congregational Care & Family Ministries

Rev. Jeff Hodge   (updated 10-29-21)
Friends, There are so many opportunities for connection and fellowship, study, service, and worship. Working with the Christian Education team and other Congregational Life teams, we have developed many programs and offerings intended to help you make new connections, strengthen old connections, and go deeper in your faith. Whether it is our weekly Sunday’s Cool for children or Wonderful Wednesdays, the Eureka! Book Club or our Advent Study, I hope you will consider trying something new in this season and in the coming season of Advent.   Pastor Jeff  

As you gather around the table this thanksgiving – whether it be with friends or family – in a small gathering or virtually -- or if you find yourself helping and serving others – be sure to include everyone in the table grace!
It can be as simple as taking turns around the table to “give thanks”. Here are some prayers – traditional and not-so-traditional to guide you this Thanksgiving.
Traditional Prayer:   For each new morning with its light; for rest and shelter of the night. For health and food; for love and friends; for everything thy goodness sends, we give you thanks – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Superman Prayer:   Thank you Lord for giving us food! Thank you Lord for giving us food! For the food that we eat here! and the friends that we meet here! Thank you Lord for giving us food!
