Devotional – Oct 8, 2020

Ever presumed you were on an invitation list, only to have a very unpleasant surprise when the party begins? Join me for a look at Revelation 7, where the heavenly banquet includes people from all sorts of people and tribes - but is missing one from Israel!

Devotional - Oct 8, 2020

Music Today - Andrew Peterson, 'Is He Worthy?'Kristina and I first heard this song performed by Peterson in concert at Grove City before the paint was even dry - he had just written it and forgot some of the words as he went along. Now hundreds of thousands of people sing it by heart - and draw great hope from it! I think it's one of the finest worship songs of the past 20 years, and it's rooted in Revelation 5 and 7.

Emmylou Harris - 'Jerusalem Tomorrow'Finding good songs about religious manipulation and abuse are difficult, especially told from a first-person perspective. This one is chilling and incredibly effective, as the 'Bluebird' of country music turns into storyteller as a charlatan healer who encounters a surprising 'rival.'

May 18th 2021 – CUP Church COVID-19 Update


May 20, 2021

Dear Cup family and friends,

At the May 18 Session meeting, our Ruling Elders, considering the latest CDC recommendations
as well as information in our own county regarding dropping numbers of Covid-19 cases are
making the following policy changes:

    1. Starting on June 6, 2021, masks will be optional in the sanctuary and in the rest of the
      building. There will not be designated sections for masking or non-masking in the
      sanctuary, but please continue to be sensitive and respectful of others around you!
    2. Seating the in the sanctuary will continue to be organized using social distancing.
    3. Communion will continue to be offered using the individual sanitized containers through
      at least August 1.
    4. Our worship service will continue in its current format. The possibility of adding more
      congregational singing to the service will be considered as we continue to monitor the
      Covid case load in our area.
    5. Vacation Bible School will be using masks and/or social distancing for those portions of
      VBS that are indoors. Please check our VBS registration page on the website for more

The church has done a tremendous job of working together through the 15 months we have
faced this pandemic. Thank you for ‘bearing with one another in love’ (Ephesians 4:2), and
may we do so more than ever as we are (hopefully) reaching the final stages of this journey!

Pastor Scott and the Cup Session
