Worry is a conversation you have with yourself about things you cannot change, prayer is a conversation you have with God about things He can change.

The United Church of Christ was formed when the Congregational Christian Church, and the Evangelical and Reformed Church, merged in 1957. Both denominations grew out of the Protestant Reformation. The rich insights of our Calvinist and Lutheran heritage still shape and nourish our faith today. The Community Church of Stow, founded in 1917, voted to join the United Church of Christ in 1961.
Each congregation of the United Church of Christ is autonomous and self-governing. The national bodies of our denomination speak to our churches, but cannot speak for them.
We believe in God, the Eternal Spirit, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and our Father, and to his deeds we testify:
God calls the worlds into being,
creates humanity in his own image
and sets before us the ways of life and death.
God seeks in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.
God judges all humanity by his righteous will
declared through prophets and apostles.
In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Lord,
God has come to us
and shared our common lot,
conquering sin and death
and reconciling the world to himself.
God bestows upon us the Holy Spirit,
creating and renewing the Church of Jesus Christ,
binding in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues, and races.
God calls us into the Church
to accept the cost and joy of discipleship,
to be his servants in the service of others,
to proclaim the Gospel to all the world
and resist the powers of evil,
to share in Christ's baptism and eat at his table,
to join him in his passion and victory.
God promises to all who trust him
forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace,
courage in the struggle for justice and peace,
his presence in trial and rejoicing,
and eternal life in his Kingdom which has no end.
Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto him. Amen.
Dear Community Church Friends and Family,
I am falling in love all over again. No, I don't mean with David, although after 30 years that gets better each and every day! I mean with Christ. Maybe it's because I'm getting older. Maybe because life has taught me a few lessons along the way or maybe because I just can't live without Him.
I find that the more time I spend in the scriptures, the more I want to talk with Him, be near Him and live my life for Him. Most ministers enjoy writing sermons, but I find that the more I research the more I want to learn and the more I am amazed at how Christ is really the answer to everything.
As I've said before, I used to go it alone. At least I tried. Now, I'm back to my toddler years and I don't want to go it alone at all. I'm happiest when I am praying, learning, reading scripture, doing ministry, and TRYING to be the person God created me to be. I just can't get enough. This morning as I was working on this Sunday's sermon, I found myself crying as I was listening to Biblical scholars talk about just how every little detail of the Salvation History that we love and care about was so magnificently perfected to the smallest, minute detail.
I know that the more I learn, the more I want to learn. I hope you will enjoy coming along on this journey with me. I hear comments about learning new things in sermons and I can't wait to start this new year off this way.
