The end of this month (April 29th) we will once again celebrate a “new members’ service,” welcoming new members to our church family. Believe it or not, we have welcomed 33 new members into the life of the church over the past nine years. This congregation has so much to offer! At the heart of our lives together is worship. We offer two services every Sunday, Sunday School for children and adults, and a monthly evening Taizé healing service. Since 1999, Olivet-Schwenkfelder UCC has been an Open and Affirming community; a beacon of welcome to LGBTQ Christians in our community. Our Lil’ Angels Preschool (rated best in the county twice) offers children a quality Christian education. In the midst of an unprecedented opioid crisis, our church continues to provide space for those overcoming addiction through Narcotics Anonymous. We donate money and goods to multiple benevolences, engage in fun and meaningful fellowship, pray for one another, support one another, and love one another. We are a church that welcomes, worships, and works together to truly love God and our neighbors!

While visitors and friends are a beloved part of our family, the church has a special responsibility towards its members. Members have a say in what the church does - and how it functions - by voting at church meetings and volunteering on committees. Members receive their own numbered giving envelopes and year end charitable giving statements for tax purposes. And finally, the Biblical ideal of church is one great family. Church membership is a way of demonstrating a mutual commitment to others in this church community; Christ’s body. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming an official member, please contact me at the church office or through email (Pastor.Kearney@gmail.com). As we say every Sunday morning, “No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!” We look forward to growing our church family on April 29th, and hopefully again and again in the months ahead.

Blessings,
Pastor Leslie
