Acts 2:1-21

This Sunday we will celebrate the Holy Spirit moving in and among the followers of Jesus as we mark Pentecost. It’s an amazing story – people speaking in different languages, yet still somehow understanding each other. As we mark the celebration of the formation of the early church, it’s a good time to look around and ask ourselves how the Spirit is working in our lives now. How is the Spirit still shaping the church in these pandemic days? How can we be more Spirit led, sparking a deeper understanding of one another? Join us and wear red this Sunday for online worship, as Rev. Mollie preaches on how we live in the Spirit and continue to be the church.

Ephesians 1:15-23

Over the past two months we have experienced a lot of ups and downs. Many things have been taken away from us. Many losses have been suffered. There is plenty of reason to be despondent. This was no less true for Paul when he was writing his letter to the church in Ephesus. His start-up church had a lot of issues to work through. They were all brand new at being Christians and so there was a lot of “learning as you go.” Sound familiar? And yet Paul writes about gratitude, and hope, and being the body of Christ together. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches about how our losses are also gains and how even in times such as this, there is much for which we can be grateful.

Acts 17:22-31

A long time ago Paul stood at the center of Athens and tried to convince the people there that the God they should be worshiping was the God he had come to know through Jesus Christ. He wasn’t saying what they were doing was wrong, so much as it was incomplete. They already had an altar to “An Unknown God.” Paul’s thought was, “why worship a God you don’t know when you could worship a God of real relationship?” Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on how the God we know through Christ is a God of intimacy, personal relationship, and is closer to us that we know.

John 14:1-14

This week in worship, we will hear from the Gospel of John, from part of Jesus’ farewell discourse. Even though we’re in the middle of the celebration of Eastertide, we hear words from Jesus before his death and resurrection, preparing and comforting the disciples before everything changes. As our world continues to change in the midst of the pandemic, Jesus’ words offer us assurance, that even though times are hard (and may get harder yet), God’s love and very presence are with us and will sustain us. Join us this week in worship as Rev. Mollie preaches, and we are reminded that relationships and God’s love continue, even as everything changes.

Who you? Yes you! We want to hear you tell your favorite story from scripture and why it is a favorite. Simply think of a favorite Bible story and film yourself telling it (nothing fancy here folks, just your favorite story in your own words), and why it’s a favorite. If you’re not sure how to make the technology part happen, please let Mollie know. We are trying to build a whole video library of retellings of our Sacred Stories. Thank you for contributing. Please see Rev. Mollie or Nancy True with questions.

The Faith Formation Board was working hard to re-imagine Vacation Bible School for this summer of 2020, changing the name to Children’s Spirituality Camp. It’s a neighborhood outreach, a way for many in the congregation to be involved with Faith Formation, and just really fun!
