Celebrate the Season of Light With Sermons Focused on Hope 

Living hope is a demanding discipline in the same way that faith and love are.  So what does LIVING hope look like?  This will be the question that will focus our Worship Services throughout the season of Epiphany.  

Epiphany Sermon Series:

Sunday, January 21:  Living Hope…a Timely Challenge
Sunday, January 28:  Living Hope…in Relation to the Past
Sunday, February 4:  Living Hope…in Relation to the Present
Sunday, February 11: Living Hope…in Relation to the Future

Saturday Morning

GUC women meet in the library kitchen at the church for a casual time of warm food and conversation.  A guided time of reflection and prayer concludes our morning gathering, which concludes at 10:00.

Our next Women's Breakfast is on January 20 @ 8:30 am

Bring a breakfast food to share - pot luck style.  We provide coffee, juice and light breakfast food.  All are welcome.

Any questions about the breakfast:

    What to expect when you join us

    Our Sunday Worship Service is at 10 am.

    What to expect when you join us on Sunday morning-
    Our service tends toward what most folks would consider traditional, with hymns and the accompaniment of our beautiful organ or piano.  We’re a congregation that loves to sing and we are often led in learning new songs by our choir.  Each time we gather, we strive to generate a worship service that honors God, nurtures faith, relates to everyday life — and inspires hope.

    Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month. We believe the Communion Table is not ours, but Christ’s, and so it is open to all.

    Following worship we always gather for fellowship and refreshments.  We enjoy getting to know visitors, and it’s a great time to find out who we are, what we are all about.

    Please, come and join us!
