Cheney Congregational Church

Are you searching for a church? Visit us and check us out at 10 a.m. any Sunday at 423 N. 6th St. and stay for refreshments at 11 a.m. in our fellowship hall so we can get acquainted.

Our new pastor, Matt Goodale, is continuing his sermon series, “A Surprising Family of Faith,” focusing on how we all encounter God in unique ways, this Sunday, July 28, at 10 a.m. Our faith journeys may look different, but they are all embraced by God, who uses each of our stories to reveal a different texture, color or shade of God’s love for us all.

He will preach this week on Jesus’ encounter with one woman in Lk. 7:36-50, which reveals how nothing we’ve done can disqualify us from God’s love or belonging to a surprising community of faith.

This Thursday, July 25, we are preparing lunch and delivering it to Crosswalk for street kids in Spokane and Crosswalk staff.

Men’s Breakfast will be Sunday, July 28, at 7:45 a.m. at Cheney Marketplace and Bakery.

Feed Cheney will be Monday, July 29, at 5:30 p.m. in Veterans Park, across the street from the Wren Pierson Building, with free brown bag suppers and groceries.

We invite you to join us on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. for our church services, regardless of where you are in your life journey.

For your contemplation: “I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

United Methodist Church

Saturday evening, July 27, the United Methodist Church welcomes award winning pianist John Nielson. He will perform at the church in a free concert open to the community at 4 p.m. You won’t want to miss this concert and his outstanding talent.
