We worship God in Christ Jesus faithfully, engage in Bible study and prayerful contemplation, serve joyfully, and seek justice passionately, with the Holy Spirit as our guide.

We are an Open and Affirming Church: We respect the worth and dignity of all persons who come into our church family regardless of their race, age, gender, nationality, marital standing, economic status, mental or physical challenges, or sexual orientation. We promise to support one another in our personal struggles, to understand and accept differences in one another, and pray to strengthen our love and acceptance.

 


"Open and Affirming"

This Sunday August 30th
at the Congregational Church of North Stonington
...
10 am worship with Church School

 

"Be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to anger..."
 

With Children:  after the Time for Children with Hope Burnside, the children are invited to attend Church School. 
The Word: James 1:17-27  "...be doers of the word, and not merely hearers. 
The message:  "A Different Sort of Religion".  The religious "news-makers" always seem to be extremists. Our lesson from James says the heart of serving God is:  to care for orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world."  We need each other to remain "unstained by the world" and to keep the faith.     

In Music: 
Prelude:   “The Gift of Love”- English Folk Melody, arr. Haas
Offertory:  Hymn Medley – Anderson.    Mobby Larson, handbell soloist
Postlude:   “Rejoice in the Lord!” - Wolford    
                     
Our Hymns:  I Sing the Mighty Power of God; Great is Your Faithfulness; and Come to Tend God’s Garden.


Serving in WorshipSara Loutrel, Matthew Sander deacons; Monica Eppinger, Pat Turner, David Thaxton, Steve Gadaree, ushers; Monica Eppinger, lay reader; Hope Burnside, time for children.
