Cheney Congregational Church
We have made the decision to suspend in-person Sunday morning worship for the time being. This is a difficult decision, and we make it with the whole Cheney community in mind. We will continue to host live Sunday morning services on Zoom at 10 a.m. You can request a Zoom link through our website, http://www.cheneycongregational.org. You can find copies of the sermons on our website.
We are also hosting outdoor “Fireside Chats” with groups of five to create social connection and combat the isolation of this season. If you are interested in joining one of these outdoor get-togethers around a fire, email pastor Matt Goodale at email@example.com.
These are difficult times for many of us. Our prayers go out to you all. May you know God’s love and God’s peace during this season.
Emmanuel Lutheran Church
Greeting from Emmanuel Lutheran Church. Although we cannot worship together as a congregation, we invite the West Plains community to access our website emmanuelcheney.org for weekly worship materials, sermon, and Zoom fellowship. If you should need pastoral support during this difficult time, please contact pastor Arianna Arends at 509-954-5886.
Emmanuel plans to gather for worship services two weeks after Spokane County opens Phase 3. Updates will be printed here if Emmanuel’s plans change.
Our Free Community Pantry remains open to the community and all are invited to take what they need and leave what they can. Donations of non-perishable food and personal care items for all ages are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your continued support of this important ministry to our neighbors in need.
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church
A welcoming haven, nourishing all God’s people in body, mind and spirit. There will be no in person service at St. Paul’s on Sunday, Jan. 31. Instead, you may access our virtual service on our Facebook page at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Cheney, WA.
The memorial service in honor of our deceased priest, Rev. Christine Soule, is postponed, and will be rescheduled later, to be held at St. John’s Cathedral. We will keep you informed.
For your contemplation: “Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime; therefore
we must be saved by hope. Nothing which is true and beautiful or good makes complete sense in an immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore we are saved by love. No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as it is from our standpoint; therefore we must be saved by the final form of love which is forgiveness.” Reinhold Niebuhr
United Methodist Church
The United Methodist Church will continue an ecumenical worship series with the Congregational, Episcopal and Lutheran churches this week. Please join our four churches as we continue the series, “One in Baptism, One In Call.” Rev. Kathy Lamphere from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church will preach the fourth sermon in the series, speaking on “Who Has Authority.” This virtual format has allowed our church’s to worship together and experience the traditions of each church.
The service is available on line or with an at home worship guide available on the church website, www.cheneyumc.org. You may also contact pastor Alissa Bertsch at 509-879-2278 if you would like be added to our mailing list for a hard copy of the worship service.
