Family Service

 

Virtual Worship Service, Sunday, July 5th, 2020

Peace to you on this 4th of July weekend, as we celebrate the freedoms we enjoy and the struggle to live into our nations’s motto, e pluribus unum (“out of many, one”). Our Scripture text for this Sunday is Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30, and it includes Jesus’ comforting words, “Come to me, all you that are weary and carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest.”

Below are two worship videos. One is the main service and the other is a child-friendly service with songs and stories.
We hope you enjoy them.

Peace to you on this last Sunday in June, as we focus on the words of Jesus from Matthew 9:35-10:8.

You’ll see their pictures after the Common Life in the worship service. Congratulations to each one of them!

Virtual Worship Service, June 21, 2020

Happy Father’s Day to all of you fathers and all of you who are like fathers to so many!  We have a gift for all of the men and boys in our congregation – you’ll find a basket full of rocks with the serenity prayer on them, in front of the 9th street door at church.  Please stop by and pick one up!

I’m excited that today we get to hear from Lindley Traynor, Director of Children and Family Ministry.  Lindley will help us think more about God as a Father, one of the many words used to describe God in Scripture.  Jesus calls God, “Abba” which is like saying, “Daddy” or “Papa”.  What does this tell us about God that Jesus would use such a gentle and intimate word to talk to God?   What if we called God “Abba?”

I’m grateful for each of you and trust that the Spirit will unite us in worship!

With Christ’s Hope!
Pastor Erin

As we continue in this season of Pentecost I pray that God’s Spirit is breathing into you new life and new hope.  In today’s Scripture we’ll hear from the Apostle Paul where he encourages the church in Rome and these Christians to find hope that is rooted in Christ; a transforming hope and one not offered by the world.

Peace to you on this Trinity Sunday, as we focus on the threeness and oneness of God and all creation. The doctrine of the Trinity has a reputation for being heady and disconnected from practical life, but it actually offers a profound word of hope to us in the turbulent time we’re living through. This Sunday, we also have the joy of recognizing the hard work of our graduates. Congratulations to each one of them! Please click here to access the worship service.
