Restoring Health: body, mind and spirit

Join us for Communion

Leave a comment


I’m happy to announce that our church service this Sunday is an “Instructional Eucharist.” Come and find out all about the history of the church and her services. An Instructional Eucharist is all about finding out why we do what we do. In a sense, it’s all about learning how to remember.

We’ll be in our underground church this week and we’re looking forward to sharing the service with you again.

The service begins on this morning Sunday—the 4th July—at 10:45am PST on YouTube. Please come and join us as we fellowship “together.”

You can find the Service by clicking HERE.

This is a wonderful time to fellowship together.

A special note:

You’ve probably heard by now that the government announced on Thursday that churches are allowed to go back to meeting without restrictions. Hallelujah! To that end, I’d like to hear what you think. Even though our building is under renovation at the moment, we could still meet somehow? (Maybe a song and prayer gathering in the afternoons. Maybe communion in the park. I would really love to hear what you think and what ideas you might have.) At this point I don’t know exactly when the church building will be ready for us to meet in, but maybe there is something we can do in the meantime? Please let me know what you think.

Thank you for being such a faithful church family. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to call me.

The peace of our Lord,

Bishop Peter (and Jenny) Klenner
