September 13, 2020: “Into The Sea”

 

September 13, 2020
This week’s service is being posted just two days following the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Last week we worked through moving from anger into grace. This week we consider forgiveness vs. justice.  This is hard stuff!  How and when do we celebrate “winning” when others are hurting?  In difficult times, as well as in comfortable ones, we ask God to go with us.Click to go to service

Worship with us

Sunday morning worship (in normal times)

Sunday morning Worship Service begins at 10am, with music, worship, prayer, community. After the welcoming time, children are excused to age-appropriate Children’s Church School.

After the worship service, join us for Fellowship Time, to rekindle relationships, check out opportunities to volunteer, and have some coffee and snacks.

See the current plans for re-opening the church facilities.

Weekly resources

See this week’s Scripture passages here, at the UMC Discipleship Planning page.

Each week’s Scripture passages are selected using the Revised Common Lectionary. This is the basis for many sermon topics, as well as church school lessons.

The Lectionary has a 3-year cycle, and includes readings from Old Testament, New Testament, and the Gospels. At the end of 3 years, the entire Bible will have been included! The Revised Common Lectionary is ecumenical (used by many Christian churches). See this description for more info.

Random acts of kindness can add joy to others’ lives, and our own, even while we are socially distant.  Get ideas at the Random Acts of Kindness website. Ideas include:

  • Happy Heart Hunt

  • Kindness Calendars
  • Self-Care ideas
