Welcome to worship on this Thanksgiving Eve as we offer our gratitude for all that God has given us.
The last day of the liturgical calendar is Reign of Christ or Christ the King Sunday. This festival was established by Pope Piux XI in 1925 in the aftermath of World War I. On this final Sunday of the church year, we remember that our first and foremost allegiance is to Jesus, not to a nation.
Welcome to worship! We are glad you are joining us for our online worship experience. As a part of worship, we will be celebrating the sacrament of Holy Communion. To prepare for this sacrament, please gather together bread/crackers and juice/wine - any ordinary food and drink will do!

Welcome to worship!
November 1st is All Saints Day. This celebration has a long history in the worship life of the Christian Church. It began as a commemoration of the martyrs who had died for the faith, and it has since become a day when we honor and remember those who have gone on before us, as well as the faithful saints of the present who serve Jesus Christ. As a part of this worship service we will honor those newly baptized this year as well as those in our congregation who have passed away.
There will be a brief All Saints prayer to remember the departed at 4pm held outside at St. Michael's. Please come wearing a face mask. If you desire to sit during this service, please plan to bring a lawn chair.
We are grateful for the support of the community to continue our ministry during the COVID19 pandemic. Consider making a gift today - your generosity allows us to serve our neighbors in need, provide online worship services and education opportunities for all ages.

Welcome to worship! This week we celebrate the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi.
St. Francis of Assisi is known as the patron saint of animals and environment. His devotion to God was expressed through love for all of God's creation. St. Francis cared for the poor and sick, he preached sermons to animals, and praised all creatures as siblings under God. Every year on or around October 4, Christians throughout the world celebrate the Feast of St. Francis with prayers for creation and a blessing of the animals. At our in-person worship we will be welcoming animals of the congregation for a special blessing, and at the end of online worship.
As a part of online worship today we will celebrate Richard James (RJ) Reinke who was baptized on September 24th. The recording of his baptism will be included in worship today!
We will also be celebrating the sacrament of Holy Communion. Before worship today, gather elements in your home: bread, juice, wine... any ordinary food will do!
