 Yes, you heard that right! As first announced in Worship last Sunday, we are scheduled to return to SCUCC for Worship in Fellowship Hall at 10am on Sunday, October 8.  The space will be ready; we will have the front elevator operating, and chairs will be set up and waiting for you.  In addition, adding to this day when we celebrate our return, there will also be a second celebration as we commemorate Fred Nordstrom’s 95th birthday. Lunch, cake and ice cream will be served courtesy of Fred’s family immediately following Worship.  What a day it will be after our long year of displacement!

New Office Schedule

As we move closer to returning to our church campus, things have moved enough along that the Church Office is now open Monday through Thursday 9am-3pm. Then later this fall, the Office will return to being open Monday-Friday.

















Bible Study

Bible Study will resume on October 5 at 11 a.m.  It will still be on Zoom only for now.  Each week, we explore the Scripture passage(s) being used in Worship that coming Sunday. These sessions are largely “guided discussion” in approach, focusing on your questions and insights from reading the texts ahead of time, with Mark facilitating and adding relevant context and detail as needed or wanted.  This approach allows for participants to engage with the Bible creatively, and with an eye toward how the texts speak to us in our time and lives. In addition, they are great prep for getting more out of the Sunday Messages!  We hope you will take the time to join in.

Spiritual Exploration

Our Spiritual Exploration programming will resume on Tuesday, Oct 3 at 7 p.m., with a new unit focused on discipleship: 

      “Pillars of Strength: Foundations of Lifelong Spiritual Growth” 

                   Tuesdays: October 3, 10, 17, 24 (and 31 if needed)       

                                  7:00-8:15pm on Zoom only

During this unit, we will look at a framework for lifelong discipleship built upon four “pillars”: Worship; Study; Service and Community. Each week we will examine one of the pillars in depth, discussing its roots in the biblical text and Christian tradition, while also exploring various aspects of each and different ways it can be practiced.  We look forward to beginning a new series of units that will go from now until next August.

Despite our ongoing displacement, energy, enthusiasm and participation on Sundays remains high, including the regular presence of visitors. In that regard, if you are considering becoming a member of SCUCC, please let Rev. Mark know. After you and he discuss the expectations and, as the old commercial says, “the benefits of membership”, you and he can schedule a Sunday that works best for you to become an official part of the SCUCC community.
