During the Covid-19 OUtbreak
As with so many other places of worship and business, Cairn’s building is currently closed. We are still connected as a community online as we continue to meet, worship and serve the community.
Our worship has moved to a Zoom platform. If you would like to participate in worship as a guest please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will ensure you receive the information you need. We will also be posting our recorded zoom worships on the Our Worship page.
Blessings to all of you. We hope you will visit us when this crisis is past.
We will be having a Grand Re-Opening of our building and will begin to hold Hybrid Worship on September 12! We hope you will join us as we begin to hold in-person worship.
Cairn understands giving holistically
As God’s people we are stewards of all aspects of life. We give of our financial resources to support our faith community and we also give our time and talent. As good stewards we want to manage all of our resources wisely and responsibly. We are concerned about social consequences, about justice, about responsible use of the earth and its resources.
Stewardship of Cairn’s financial resources means gifts from many work together to carry out our mission. In these challenging times of social separation, we may remember the blessings of our community of faith through giving.
