Online Worship Service for April 5

Join us on Sunday, April 5 @ 11 am for a virtual worship service followed by virtual coffee hour.  We suggest that you have a chalice or candle close by your screen so that we can all light our chalices at the same time. We will share Joys and Sorrows in the Zoom Chat Box. 


Zoom is implementing additional security into their service. They are adding required passwords and waiting rooms to all Zoom meetings.
How does this change how we access our online worship service? 

Below, you will see the updated access information. You'll notice that the Zoom URL link is much longer than before — the password is embedded in this link. If you click on it, it will take you straight to the meeting as it did before (you won't need to enter the meeting password). If you join the meeting by typing in the meeting ID — or you join us by phone — you'll need to enter in the password when prompted.

Once you join the meeting, you'll find yourself in a virtual waiting room. One of our virtual “ushers” will let you into the online service within a few minutes.

PLEASE NOTE: The new Zoom link and password info is ONLY being distributed via this e-blast. It will NOT be published on the website or Facebook page. So, if you know anyone in our community that doesn't use e-mail or has trouble getting our e-blasts, please pass this information on to them. You can also have them contact Tina Ramey at or (850) 445-8443.

Thank you for being patient with us as we work on implementing these new requirements. If you have issues joining the service this Sunday, please let us know and we will do our best to help you.

Welcome and Announcements 

Sung Call to Worship 

Chalice Lighting “We kindle this chalice flame to remind ourselves of the light of truth, the warmth of community, and the fire of commitment.” (adapted from Elizabeth Selle Jones)

Story for All Ages – Jess Hunt

Opening Hymn “Enter, Rejoice and Come In” 

Joys and Sorrows (Use Chat)

Meditation/Prayer/Silence - Roberta

Stewardship Moment – Barry Finkelstein


Reading “Ministry Is All That We Do Together” by Rev. Gordon McKeeman 

Sermon “Share and Share Alike” Rev. Roberta Finkelstein

Hymn “Spirit of Life” 

Chalice Extinguishing “We extinguish this flame, but not the light of truth, the warmth of community, or the fire of commitment. These we carry in our hearts until we are together again.” Elizabeth Selle Jones

Unison Affirmation “Love is the doctrine of this church, the quest for truth is its sacrament, and service is its prayer. To dwell together in peace, to seek knowledge in freedom, to serve humanity in fellowship, to the end that all souls shall grow into harmony with the divine, thus do we covenant with one another.”

Virtual Social Hour
Immediately following the service, those who wish to remain will be able to participate in a virtual coffee/social hour. Depending on the number of people who wish to participate, we will create small breakout rooms where people can converse with each other.
