Greetings to all of you,


Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) will be celebrated by Jews starting on sundown this Sunday, September 27 and ending at sundown, Monday, September 28. This is a day of fasting and repentance.  This is the highest Holy Day in Judaism.  It’s origin of course is found in the Bible.  One of several places it is commanded is Leviticus 23:26-27, “The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “On exactly the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonement; it shall be a holy convocation for you, and you shall humble your souls and present an offering by fire to the Lord.”  In Biblical days, once a year and only on this day, the High Priest entered the Holy of Holies of the temple and sprinkled blood on the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant for the forgiveness of sins of all of the people.


As Christ followers, we know from the New Testament, that Jesus fulfilled this requirement through his sacrifice on the cross by dying for our sins once and for all.  He died for the sins of all people, for all of our sins and for all time.  In fact, Jesus fulfilled every law about sacrifices in the Old Testament.  Hebrews 10.11-12 “Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God.”


And so, on a practical level, we rejoice that we do not have to make sacrifices every day or every year.  But on a deeper level, we rejoice that Jesus died on the cross for us once and for all so that we could have our sins forgiven and receive the hope of everlasting life.  Let us praise God and rejoice and thank him for his love and mercy for us.


UPCOMING WORSHIP – This coming Sunday's sermon will be a continuation of our new series in which we are learning about God's general will for each of our lives. this  week we will look at God's desire for us to be people whoare thankful. in all things to him.  The sermon is entitled, "God's Will - To Be Thankful." Thanksgiving is not just something we do once a year or periodically. Rather it is to be a part of our lifestyle.


For our in-person worship, we will continue to follow the procedures and protocols that you can find on our website.


We are making every effort to upload the sermon on Sunday, but it will definitely be uploaded by Monday evening on YouTube and our Facebook page:

TUESDAY SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDY HAS RESUMED – We have resumed the small group on Tuesdays at 10:00 AM.  We are studying the last three chapters of the Gospel of John. We wear masks and keep social distance.  We are far enough apart enabling many to remove their mask while seated at the tables and having our discussions.  We will be meeting downstairs in the fellowship hall.  Beverages will be available.  Sanitizers will be readily available.  The room and restrooms will be sanitized before and after usage.  Make sure you wash your hands well.


Always remember, if you are not ready to attend yet, we understand.


BOSCOV’S DAY FUNDRAISER FOR ABW MISSIONS - The Boscov's Day event has changed this year. It will be held on two days instead of one (October 14 and 15 from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM) They are not passing out tickets to take to the store and will no longer be selling tickets at the door.  Customers will tell the cashier the name of the organization they are supporting. At that time the cashier will give them their discount and store our information. At the end of the event a check will be written by Boscov's for the amount of sales received. The donation is still $5.00 per customer.


TITHES AND OFFERINGS – We want to thank all of you for your continued faithfulness to the ministry of Christ through sending in your tithes and offerings. For those attending our in-person worship celebrations you will be able to place tithes and offerings in an offering plate in the front of the sanctuary on Sundays. For those not ready to attend yet, you can continue to mail them, or drop them off in the church mailbox.


FOOD DONATIONS – We encourage you to continue to donate food for the local food pantry.  If you would like to donate food, please bring your food to the church and they will be taken down to Calvary UMC. The third Sunday of the month will still be Food Bank Sunday.


God Bless each of you. Remain Calm, Remain Safe, Remain Praying

How To Become a Follower of Jesus


"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."  Romans 10.9


Becoming a follower of Jesus Christ requires repenting of your sins, and believing that Jesus died on the cross and rose again to forgive you of those sins and entering into a relationship with Him.


If you are ready to become a follower of Jesus Christ pray this prayer: 

Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I ask for Your forgiveness.  I believe You died for my sins and rose again from the dead.  I turn my life over to You.  I want to trust  and follow You as my Lord and Savior.  Amen.
