Church Canceled due to Coronavirus
For your safety, church services are canceled until further notice. We will resume services when it is safe to do so. For the time being, all our small groups have been canceled.
My grandmother kept the brittle, yellowed obituary of Return Jonathan Meigs in her Bible. He achieved distinction as an officer in the Revolutionary Army and later as a pioneer in Ohio. The obituary concluded: “His father, when a young man, became enamored of a young Quaker woman. Though repeatedly rejected, he persisted in his suit. On his last visit, as he slowly mounted his horse to ride away dejected, she relented and beckoned to him to stop, crying out, ‘Return, Jonathan. Return, Jonathan.’ These words, which gave him so much happiness, he gave as a name to his firstborn son.”
