What is Shalom? Rev. Neil Plantinga gives this definition: “Shalom is much more than peace of mind or the ceasefire of enemies, it is described as universal wholeness and delight, and reigning over all is the earth’s Creator and Savior who opens doors and opens hearts and welcomes all of us as children of God.” Wow!
The theme of our service this week is Peace, what the prophets called Shalom. Rev. Bernie Bakker is sharing God’s word from the text of Matthew 5:9: Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called Children of God.
As Christ followers we are called to be peacemakers and to work at reconciliation and restoration….which may be costly. Grab your bibles we also will be studying 2 Corinthians 5: 11-21, we hope you can join us.

And, hey, once this COVID crisis is safely over, and live worship resumes (yes, we’ll let you know), we’d love to have you join us in person for worship.
We usually gather each Sunday at 10am.
Don’t worry about getting all gussied up. Just come as you are – we’re a church full of imperfect people.
And we’d be glad to have other imperfect people, like you, along for the ride! STAY TUNED – we’ll let you know just as soon as Sunday, in-person worship resumes.
