SERVICEs at 8:30 AM and 10:45 am
Calling all Musicians and Disney Lovers! Our first Sundaes on Wednesday will be in the evening of Wednesday, June 20. As a summer kick-off we will also have a Disney-themed musical event that evening. We are looking for musicians of all ages and skill levels to select their favorite Disney tunes to perform. Sing, play, dance, can-jo or use your imagination. We are not looking for polished performances, just a lot of fun! If you need an accompanist, schedule time with Sara. Contact Gary or Sara, and put your dibs on your favorite tune!
Thanks for Joining Us at "Life According to Everybody"
We had a wonderful turnout at our second storytelling event and, based on the positive feedback from our attendees, an enjoyable time was had by all. Thank you to our four storytellers—Ginny Karbowski, Etienne Djevi, Maggie Peck and John Richardson—for sharing stories from their personal experiences. You made us laugh, you made us think, you helped us gain new perspectives. Thank you to Beth Zander, Anna Duus, Marge Tillery and Pastor Hans for hosting and offering a fabulous spread of food and beverages to make everyone feel welcome. Nathan Evans provided the musical entertainment throughout the evening. Thank you, Nathan, for sharing your creativity with us! And thank you to Dan Nyberg who videotaped the event and made it possible for all to be part of this wonderful evening. There will be other community events like this, and if you have a suggestion for a theme, please let us know. (See note below.)
Got a Storytelling Topic?
So far, our “Life According to Everybody” topics have been “Animal Stories” and “Through My Eyes.” What should be our topic for our Fall 2018 event? Camping stories? Our Role in the Environment? Neighbors? Your suggestions for storyteller topics at future events are welcome. Drop us a note and email us.
Upcoming Worship Focus
We invite you to join us for worship on Sunday mornings. All are welcome!
Our 8:30 am service is a traditional worship service with organ and choir music. The 10:45 am worship service is a contemporary service led by the Celebrate worship band.
God pours out the Spirit, who helps us in our weakness. How is God’s Spirit at work in your very being? In our day?
Some early Christians came to understand the Trinity as a kind of divine dance, where God is in motion. How is the Tri-Unity moving among us?
Treasure in clay jars
Even though we are fragile human beings, God entrusts us with the power of the Gospel, reveal-ing again how God works in mysterious ways.
So We Do Not Lose Heart
The scriptures today from Genesis and Mark show some of the struggles of family life. Yes, even in Biblical times there was family struggle. We are realistic, yet we do not lose heart, says Paul.
Jesus often spoke like a farmer about seeds, growth, and change. How and what can we learn about God’s good news from what grows around us, and in us?
Today we hear the famous story of Jesus calming the storm at sea. We, like the disciples, also get panicked when the winds get rough. Come and hear how Jesus greets the storms of life.
