We are making some slight changes to our weekly worship schedule as indicated in the graphic. Most importantly, this means that starting July 11th COS will be almost completely back to a regular Pre-COVID-like worship schedule with 8:30am and 10:00am indoor services and a 6:00pm outdoor service! If you have any questions about any of the coming changes, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SOS Operation Backpack
We are collecting school supplies for Sussex Outreach Services throughout July to be distributed in our community in early August. You can help by donating needed school supplies to ensure that every child in the Sussex area receives the necessary supplies to get the school year off to a great start. There will be a collection bin at church until August 4th.
SOS Food Pantry Summer Bonus Bags
Keep on bringing in your food items for our Summer Bonus Bags collection. These bags are essential for feeding hungry children in our community. We are collecting single-serve lunch items throughout the summer.
Sunday Morning Worship Service July 25, 2021
Worship with us right here on our website!
We invite you to join us for online worship right here on our website! All you have to do is click on the video and enjoy this week’s message and service. We understand that this is not the same as an in-person worship service, but we are thankful to be able to gather in virtual form with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Come and gather, all are welcome.
In worship, we gather in the presence of God and of one another to be strengthened for following Jesus in our daily lives. We are reminded of God’s promises, sing God’s word with our lips, and are fed at God’s table. In our busy lives, it is an hour to be refocused on who we are and whose we are.
All of our ministries would not be possible without gifts, tithes, and offerings from people like you. As Christians, we believe that all we have is a gift from God and we return some of that to God to thank him and share his wonderous love with others. We are blessed to be a blessing.
We believe that we love God by loving others. Jesus showed us what that love looks like by caring for the poor, the lonely, the sick, and those who felt abandoned by God. We have many ministries that we lead or partner with as a congregation because serving others improves our lives as well as theirs.
