Devotional – Mar 24, 2021

Red fish, Blue fish, Go fish for true fish, who are um, people. Seriously, how does the church present the gospel in a polarized culture? Is there anything beyond life in two colors? Join me for a few minutes with Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount and his Palm Sunday entrance.

Devotional - Mar 24, 2021


Music Today: 'The Day that I Found God,' Switchfoot
Jon Foreman continues to write thoughtful, challenging lyrics, and this song brings another angle to the joy and surprise that come in a relationship with God through Christ.

'This noose ain't getting any looser
I get so fearful bout the future
I hear the shame of my accuser
But that ain't you
And I found strength but it wasn't what I thought
And I found peace in the places I forgot
And I found riches ain't the things that I had bought
Yeah I found out the day I lost myself was the day that I found God'

'There Is a Mountain', Caroline Cobb
C.S. Lewis said a powerful sign of the truth of Christianity is that no one would or even could create a religion based on a God like this. Here's a beautiful picture of how God turns power on its head.

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
