During Advent (the four Sundays before Christmas) and on Epiphany Sunday (Jan. 8), we will be looking at the Christmas story from the perspective of various characters within the story.  Today, on the first Sunday of Advent, Pastor Linda tells the story of Isaiah, a Jewish prophet from about 700 BCE.  Following several major wars, he provided hope for a peaceful future.  His words are still quoted today as a promise of Jesus’s presence with us. During the service we also have a “Good Morning Morgan Hill” interview with “Isaiah”!  This service also includes Holy Communion. Our services are being held with in-person attendance atRead More →

How can we be thankful at a time when there are so many bad things happening? In the middle of the devastating American Civil War, Pres. Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day, to give thanks for the good that was still happening outside of the military conflict. In today’s message, Pastor Linda encourages us to take time to show gratitude, as it can change our attitude! Our services are being held with in-person attendance at 10 a.m. Sunday morning.  Today’s service is provided below in its entirety in video format.  Note that closed captioning is available when “CC” appears in white at the bottom ofRead More →

According to an old English proverb, “it’s an ill wind that blows no good.” How do we deal with life, and find peace, when it seems that an “ill wind” is blowing so much of the time?

Have you been blessed by having in your life someone you consider to be a saint?  On this All Saints Day Sunday, Pastor Linda encouraged us to remember those saints in our lives who have died, whether recently or long ago, as well as those still in our lives.  Today we lit candles for our saints, and took a moment to honor them. If you were unable to join the service in-person, we encourage you to also light a candle and remember your saints. Our services are being held with in-person attendance at 10 a.m. Sunday morning.  Today’s service is provided below in its entiretyRead More →
