Upcoming Services, Events & Opportunities to Serve

Out of care for one another during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are keeping "social distance."  As a result of this, the Church Council has decided to suspend all Worship Services, book and Bible studies until further notice.

Pastor Greg Rupright will broadcast an abbreviated Service each Sunday that will be recorded and downloaded to our church's website (www.fairportucc.org) each Monday.  All of our Church Boards and Church Council will conduct meetings via conference calls, Zoom, or email.

Pastor Greg Rupright encourages anyone who has a pastoral concern to contact him at any time: revgregrup.ucc@gmail.com; 585-966-9416 (cell); 585-223-0224 (church).

THURSDAY, MARCH 26th - check the Pastor's Blog Bible Study & Reflection on our church's website: www.fairportucc.org.  Just click Pastor's Blog.  This week's Pastor's Blog Bible Study & Reflection will be on Psalm 130.  Reply to the blog or email Pastor Greg any of your reflections on Psalm 130.

SUNDAY, MARCH 29th at 9:30 AM BROADCAST SERVICE (www.fairportucc.org - click the sermons tab) - FIFTH SUNDAY IN LENT.  The Message, "Down In the Depths," will focus on Psalm 130.  Israel's God not only loves, but listens, not only hears but also rescues.  When we find ourselves down in the depths, we may cry out to God for redemption based upon what we know of the character of God.  God is redemptive.  That means God wants to fix things.  When we fall face down in some deep, dark abyss, it's the nature of the God of Israel and of the Church to pull us out of the pit.  That's good news to hear from the depths of social distancing.  We can wait with hope because God is here to listen to our prayers and help us find hope until we are pulled out of the pit of the Coronavirus.  COME JOIN US VIA OUR WEBSITE BROADCAST AS WE CONTINUE OUR LENTEN JOURNEY.  ALL ARE WELCOME!

NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, OR WHERE YOU ARE ON LIFE'S JOURNEY, YOU ARE WELCOME IN THIS UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST.  OUR GOD IS STILL SPEAKING! GOD LOVES YOU, AND SO DO WE!
