Serving our community online is a priority for us. We want to give our congregation options to stay home and still worship and connect to one another. As you stay home, you are invited to plug in to any of these opportunities:
We will either Livestream or post a video of Sunday morning worship. Outdoor Worship is Sunday at 9:30am– go to the Crown Heights UMC Facebook page (you can watch worship anytime after it’s posted). And in the “Coming Up in Worship” section of this webpage, we have a few links to watch worship services.
Giving online is available from our webpage. Look for the donate link at the top of the home page.
You are invited to take part in reading The Upper Room Daily Devotions. The Upper Room shares a daily scripture verse, short devotion, and prayer. It is a good moment of centering for our faith. Many in our church are already familiar with these devotions.
You can access The Upper Room by uploading the app, reading online, or asking the Church Office for a booklet. To upload the app on to your smart phone, you will need to create a sign in. The first month is free (30 days of devotions free), after that it’s $1.99 for a month. Through the app, there is an option of having the devotion read aloud, so you can listen in your car. To read online, go to upperroom.org, click on tab called “Daily,” click on “Daily Devotion.” To get your hands on a book, call the Church Office and ask Susan to mail one to you.
If you would like to go deeper, join us for Zoom meetings on Sunday evenings at 7 pm, focusing on the week’s Upper Room devotions. We can choose one from the week to read together and discuss the lesson being taught. Anyone is welcome to the Zoom conversation. Even if you aren’t following the Upper Room, we will read the lesson aloud so everyone will know the topic.

This is a video conversation with Dr. Amy Oden and some members of our church. I am including mostly her lecture portion, where she places Christian Mindfulness and experiential practices in our modern context. She explores the question, how do we learn more about God? Through study or prayer? Or both? https://vimeo.com/432348651
This is a video of Dr. Amy Oden, preaching as our Holland Lecturer, on the topic of Christian Mindfulness. She led our church in worship on July 12, 2020. https://vimeo.com/438181124
