“The session recommends for the congregation to take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID as we gather for worship, fellowship, and service. As an act of love for ourselves, of love for our neighbor, and our love of God, we will require masks to be worn indoors when the percentage of positivity for COVID in Charlotte County is greater than 15%. When the positivity rate for Charlotte County is less than 15%, we will encourage masks to be worn indoors. Each week, an email will be sent on Saturday evening to update everyone on the percentage of COVID positivity in Charlotte County and mask expectations based on the Florida COVID-19 Response webpage ( If you are not feeling well, strongly encourage you to join online from home. Click HERE for the current testing guidelines. We will have signage on the doors with the current percentage rates and mask needs for every indoor event with the congregation and for the community.”

Coming Alive: A New Path to Aliveness (Matthew 5:17-48)
This Sunday we continue our journey diving deeper in the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 5-7. During this season, we will be joining the adventure of Jesus … remembering it is a starting line and not a finish line. Through our adventure, we will explore what it means to become alive as followers of Jesus.

Sunday, March 20, 2022
For this gathering, we hope everyone will stay for the conversation and potluck. After worship, we will gather out in the garden for our meeting then for a potluck. Please bring a dish to share with everyone.

Lectio Divina for March 14, 2022
All are welcome to join us as we continue to engage in the spiritual practice of Lectio Divina together as a community. 

Our scripture lesson is Matthew 6:1-18.

We will gather via zoom for an intentional time of listening, reflecting, responding, and resting in the Word of God. We will meet on Mondays from 8-9 am. 

Here are some details about Lectio Divina. 

Lectio Divina, literally meaning “divine reading,” is an ancient practice of praying the Scriptures. During Lectio Divina, the person listens to the text of the Bible with the “ear of the heart,” as if he or she is in conversation with God, and God is suggesting the topics for discussion.

There are four movements for Lectio Divina: 
1. Lectio: (Listening to the Word of God or Reading God’s Word)
2. Meditatio: (Reflecting on the Word of God)
3. Oratio: (Responding to the Word of God)
4. Contemplatio: (Resting in the Word of God)
