“Come as you are to worship!” All people are welcome! Large print prayers books are available.

Our Sunday Rite II service is at 9:30 a.m. with hymns and praise music. Coffee time and Adult Inspirations follow the service.  Children (ages 3 through 3rd grade) meet during the readings and sermon and return for the Peace and Communion with their families.  Living the Good News lessons and activities are presented during the school year. 

On the first and third Wednesdays, the service is held at Rittenhouse at 9:30 a.m..  Equally as important as connecting with God, these services afford us an opportunity to connect with the residents.  Come worship and be a friend to our senior brothers and sisters in Christ!

Over the six Sundays between Easter and Pentecost, the Year B readings from the Lectionary include six successive readings from the epistle of 1 John. 1 John focuses upon Jesus as the Incarnate Light of the world and calls Christians to intentionally walk in the light of Christ. This short, pithy epistle will be well worth our focus over the coming weeks. Join us for that journey!

A car wash and trunk sale has been planned for Saturday, May 26. Volunteers are needed to help wash cars for blocks of time during the morning and afternoon. Also, if you know someone who would like to purchase a spot at the trunk sale for a nominal fee, please talk with Fr. Rob. If you can’t volunteer to help wash cars, please strongly consider bringing your car for a bath at the fundraiser! 100% of the proceeds go to fund the 2018 Michigan City Wide Vacation Bible School.  The dates for this year’s VBS program are Monday, July 23 through Friday, July 27.

From Fr. Rob:  One of the benefits I have as your priest is that I qualify for a 6 week sabbatical after five years of ministry.  I am planning on using that benefit during the month of June and the first two Sundays of July.  I’m very grateful for Bishop Ed Little, Father Jim Lodwick and Pastor Jim Swanson, who will celebrate and preach in my absence.  I’m very grateful for this opportunity to recharge my spiritual batteries and attend worship services as a participant, not the leader, for a few weeks.
