In Worship This Weekend...

Check out the video below to see how the Bishop's are getting ready for our Sharing Abundantly "pledge drive" this Sunday. Keep handy the packet we mailed you recently and tune in to our live streaming services this Sunday Morning!

After Worship This Weekend...

Just like the Bishop's said, after worship this Sunday you can hop in the car and make the "pledge drive" down to the church where a surprise is in store for you! We have even put our Adult Education Zoom on hold for a week so you don't need to miss it!
If you really don't want to make that drive, we'll be sad to not get to see you,but you can also just mail in your 2021 Estimate of giving card, or fill it out online at

Thank you all for your generous support of our ministries and mission in this trying time.

MED-Q: Medical, Psychological and Spiritual First Aid

Make It OK - Linn County, in partnership with the Cedar Rapids MedQuarter, is pleased to announce A panel discussion of experts and everyday individuals to share strategies and lived experiences that will benefit you and someone you know.
This Thursday, Nov. 18, join us online at 12 noon for "Medical, Psychological and Spiritual First Aid." With the onset of the coronavirus crisis, nearly half of adults in the United States indicated the pandemic was having a negative impact on their mental health; nearly 20% said a “major impact”(*). Prior research indicated that 1 in 5 will experience a mental illness during their lifetime. As we move toward our next normal, it is more critical than ever to move past the stigma around mental illness. Register for the free online talk here. Find out more about the initiative at Make It OK.

The Inter-Religious Council of Linn County invites you to its Virtual Thanksgiving Service,
"Hope in Times of Pain & Struggle"
with Guest Speaker Dr. Jason A. Mahn, Professor of Religion &
Director of the Presidential Center for Faith and Learning at Augustana College
Monday, Nov. 23, at 7:00 pm.
