Some Clarification on Attendance at Sunday Gatherings and Masking

Please see the latest FAQ answers on our COVID-19 Updates page regarding masks and attendance at Sunday gatherings.

Our Preacher this Evening

Our preacher this evening will be the Rev. Matthew Lanser, Executive Pastor at our sister church Trinity Church Seattle. Matthew lives in the Seattle area with his wife of 17 years and their three delightful children. He enjoys cycling, both for commuting and seeking adventure. He also has a keen affinity for the Old Testament, especially in its original language.

Pastor Matthew Lanser will be preaching on Isaiah 41:8-20, “Water in Waterless Places.”

“We are living through a tumultuous time, nationally and globally. These seismic times reverberate into our own personal lives. Though this may be new to us, it is not new to the human experience broadly, nor God’s people specifically. These times and experiences may be likened to the barren wasteland of the desert. Nothing can grow there; everything is impossible. And yet, because the Lord–the helper of his people, the Redeemer of Israel–is God, all manner of hope, consolation, life, and joy is possible. More than that, hope is assured. Water is indeed possible in waterless places.”

Pastor’s Vacation

Pastor Nicoletti will begin the second half of his vacation beginning August 3rd and will return on August 18th.

Our Thanks

Our thanks to Doug Lawty, who manages the video and sound, and to the musicians who have beautifully enhanced our online worship experience. Elsie Dye and Melissa McMillan sing and provide instrumental accompaniment for every Lord’s Day Service.
