Registration and Fundraising
Retreat is a community-building event for all regular Assembly participants. The congregation is committed to including everyone at retreat, regardless of ability to pay. Due to increasing costs, we are asking for you to generously donate what you can now in order to make retreat accessible for everyone.
The church budget for retreat ($5,500) covers about half of the total cost of retreat. We encourage you to pledge an offering to help cover the remaining half of retreat. Our goal is to raise $5,000 in special offerings designated for retreat. Let’s “Leaf No One Out”!
$3,960 of our $5,000 goal has already been raised in pledges. Thank you! (as of 9/15/21)
Join us Sunday at 9:30 AM
“Seeking Justice Together”
(Aug 15-Sept 26, 2021)
God’s justice is not only our work in the world, but God’s work in us. As we are transformed and become aligned with the heart of God in Christ, we are better able to reflect God’s justice and peace through our lives to the world.
Join us in a reflective reading from the Psalms, and a brief time of silent and spoken prayer together.
“Though contemporary readers often seek comfort through a devotional reading of the Psalms, the persistent challenge of evil against the righteous is a primary motif that has informed Anabaptist use of the Psalter.” (James Waltner)
Join us Sunday at 9:30 AM
COVID-19 Precautions: We continue to worship outdoors in the North parking lot (at Adams & 11th St)
due to the high rate of transmission in Elkhart County.
We request that all unvaccinated persons over age 2 wear a mask outdoors whenever physical distancing is impractical.
Please stay home if you have any COVID-19 symptoms.
Children and youth will be dismissed to Sunday school or age-based breakout groups before the homily.
An outdoor fellowship time for all ages will follow the service.
Small groups are integral to the life of our congregation. They are the best place for care and nurture of individuals, for support and accountability in our faith journeys, for some stages of communal discernment, and for some types of mission and outreach.
As a reconciling faith community, we seek to follow Jesus’ example by welcoming all who come our way, regardless of age, economic or social circumstances, ethnic background, gender, marital status, physical ability, race, or sexual orientation.
We seek to keep children in the midst of our congregation, the responsibility of all, to be known by name, to be valued persons in the congregation, and active participants in worship.
From four-part singing, to drumming, to visuals, to dance, the arts are highly valued and central to our worship.
