Embrace UCC returns to online worship August 15, 2021
We were excited to be back together after 15 months virtual only but it was short lived.
Due to the rise in COVID cases we are online only until further notice.
We have many young children and we want to keep them and our adults safe -- so we are temporarily back to online
worship. Please come to our facebook page and come to our live feed on Sundays at 10am. Please say hello and let us
know you are worshipping and type in any prayer requests. You can also watch the service later in the day or week.
If you aren’t on Facebook – you can find us by opening your search engine – type in facebook.com/embraceucc
and it will take you to our Facebook page – you may need to scroll down to the video that says “live video” and
click on it to start listening.
We will sign on a few minutes early so everyone can get settled in and ready to start at 10am
FYI When you sign on from a search engine – make sure there is no space between embraceucc or it will take you
to embrace Facebook page –which is not us!!!
We are excited about being the community God calls us to be -- and look forward to bringing the things we have
learned during the pandemic into our new way of being Embrace UCC going forward.
Embracing Arms Care Team is up and running. Each Care Team member is assigned 6-8 households to check in with on a
monthly basis and be their prayer partner and encourager on the journey. We are thankful to Stephanie for leading
this team and Rev Lisetta for providing training in our monthly meetings
Caregiviers Support Group -- We have many members who are providing ongoing care for parents and family members
