Our church building is closed. Updates will be posted here as more information is available.

We will present a live worship experience every Sunday morning at 10:00 am by video streaming on ZOOM.
See the Worship Streams section of our website for details.

In these anxious days, let’s remember to pause at the end of each day, breathe deeply, rest in the presence of the Great Love and hold each other in the light.

Will Fuller, ModeratorWell, my term as Moderator is off to a good start – I was absent the first three Sundays and Kairos-Milwaukie UCC did just fine.

Our July Council meeting came off OK, too. Had a small celebration for the departing members, with light refreshments and parting wisdom, got through the agenda and ended on time. We won’t meet in August, but we will meet the 3rd Sunday in September, the 16th.

Council will have a retreat on Saturday, September 22, at the Pankratz’ home. Details to follow.

Learning

I believe that the biggest part of moderating is learning about church needs and doing something to meet them, so please feel free to let me know what you think Kairos-Milwaukie needs.

I will also be talking with others, particularly with the ministry chairs, Council members and others who contribute in many ways to our congregational existence, to help me learn the ropes and serve as best I can.

Sanctuary

The word “sanctuary” has been in my thoughts lately -- not only because of immigrants and refugees but because of the word itself. A sanctuary is a safe, sacred space, something especially needed in these unsafe, profane times. We worship in a sanctuary, and creating such a safe, sacred space in all we do is vital to our mission as a church. Throughout my term as Moderator I will work to create sanctuary, and I invite you to join me in that work.
