This Sunday is World Communion Sunday, and we will gather at the Lord's Table in both services and with Christians all over the world in celebration of God's gift of grace through Jesus Christ. If you are worshiping from home, please feel free to gather your own elements to join us during the live stream. You will also be invited to give a Second Mile Offering to the World Communion Fund, to provide scholarships and funding for global ministries. If you want to find out more about this special offering, click here.

This Sunday we will also be passing out 3rd Grade Bibles to some very special young disciples! If you have a 3rd grader who would like to receive a Bible at either of our services (or delivered to your home) email and let Ms. Denise know!

We will resume gathering in our Sanctuary this Sunday, October 4th at 11am for traditional worship. To see our updated ESUMC sanctuary guidelines, visit our website here. To see more of what you can expect from our In-person Sanctuary Worship, watch this short video.

We will continue worshiping in the parking lot at 9am as long as the weather permits. I have enjoyed our time in the lot and I'm grateful that we have such an awesome campus that allows us to gather outside as well!

If you have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to email me at or call 479-248-1290.

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Jennie
