Deep In Our Hearts
A Cooperative Ministry

Following a successful visioning event hosted by Silver Falls in November 2013, there was a desire among Glen View, Park Avenue/Red Head, St. Andrew and St. David, and Silver Falls to explore the opportunity for collaboration among our churches. With the support of the church boards and Presbytery, representatives from each congregation formed a committee and held its first meeting in February 2014.

The committee has been meeting regularly since then.  For information about our work, please visit our website.

Super Summer Sale a Supper Summer Success!

The UCW's Super Summer Sale was a great success.  Fun was had by all and the UCW considers it a very successful fund-raiser. 

Chuck Knows Church has begun a new series of videos called The Committee.  Watch as Chuck and the church members of Park Grove Church try to find ways to breathe new life into a tired church family that have lost their spark.  Become inspired.  Become engaged in their story.

Scripture for the Week

Matthew 20:1-16, The Workers in the Vineyard

1 “The Kingdom of heaven is like this. Once there was a man who went out early in the morning to hire some men to work in his vineyard.

2 He agreed to pay them the regular wage, a silver coin a day, and sent them to work in his vineyard.

3 He went out again to the marketplace at nine o'clock and saw some men standing there doing nothing,

4 so he told them, ‘You also go and work in the vineyard, and I will pay you a fair wage.’

5 So they went. Then at twelve o'clock and again at three o'clock he did the same thing.

6 It was nearly five o'clock when he went to the marketplace and saw some other men still standing there. ‘Why are you wasting the whole day here doing nothing?’ he asked them.

7 ‘No one hired us,’ they answered. ‘Well, then, you go and work in the vineyard,’ he told them.

8 “When evening came, the owner told his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, starting with those who were hired last and ending with those who were hired first.’

9 The men who had begun to work at five o'clock were paid a silver coin each.

10 So when the men who were the first to be hired came to be paid, they thought they would get more; but they too were given a silver coin each.

11 They took their money and started grumbling against the employer.

 12 ‘These men who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘while we put up with a whole day's work in the hot sun—yet you paid them the same as you paid us!’

13 ‘Listen, friend,’ the owner answered one of them, ‘I have not cheated you. After all, you agreed to do a day's work for one silver coin.

14 Now take your pay and go home. I want to give this man who was hired last as much as I gave you.

15 Don't I have the right to do as I wish with my own money? Or are you jealous because I am generous?’”

16 And Jesus concluded, “So those who are last will be first, and those who are first will be last.”
