Community Ministry 2.0


Thank you to everyone who took time to fill out Survey Monkey about our August Community Worship Series. We received feedback from more than 45 people! The theme was overwhelmingly positive. You loved worshiping in a space filled with voices, you liked meeting new people and learning about other traditions. You thought the series created positive energy for all our churches. cw1Though you are excited about the way the Spirit is at work in our midst, you worry about losing our own identity, about over extending ourselves with too many new programs, about visitors or members who missed worship this summer because they didn’t know what was happening or that the logistics were overwhelming. We hear your concerns and seek to move forward, carrying the energy of the Spirit, in a positive, intentional way. Your feedback, support and prayers are welcome!

cw2World Wide Communion Sunday is October 5th and we will celebrate the multi-cultural, ecumenical service by welcoming the Rev. Nancy Fitzgerald for a pulpit exchange. In order to continue to learn about one another, but to minimize the logistical challenges of moving congregants, the clergy of our three churches are exchanging pulpits. I will be worshiping and preaching at Arlington Forest United Methodist Church while the Rev. Mike Vess will be at Arlington Church of the Brethren. If you are interested in helping with worship that day, we are looking for extra support including scripture readers, liturgists, and a children’s message. Please let me know if you willing to participate.


Looking ahead, in November we will welcome all three churches into our sanctuary for the Thanksgiving service on Wednesday, November 26th at 7 pm. We hope you will join us.
