Matthew 4:12-23

In this week’s reading from the Gospel of Matthew, we hear the call story of Peter, Andrew, James, and John, who respond to Jesus’s simple invitation to follow him and to immediately do so. We, too, are invited to follow Jesus and are invited to participate in God’s realm that is here and draws near. What barriers do we put up to participation, ours and other’s? What does the invitation to follow Jesus and participate in God’s work look like in our lives today? On this congregational meeting day, join your faith community in worship as Rev. Mollie preaches on walking together, and the transformation that can happen when we participate wholeheartedly.

Forming New Sacred Circles—A Small Group Ministry

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Sacred Circles are groups of 4-8 women that gather regularly for deepening relationships, support, and spiritual formation. Think of it as a book group where the text is the stories of our lives. Each circle meets on their own schedule and decides together how they want their circle to function. Some Circles meet in people’s homes, others go out to dinner, others gather at the church. Some meetings are during the day, others in the evening. There is no wrong way to Sacred Circle. We are forming new Sacred Circles now! If you want to join a circle, but can’t attend the Information Session, please contact Pastor Curt.

Psalm 40:1-11

All of us have been in a difficult place at some time in our lives. All of us have felt alone, afraid, and upset. Where is God in these moments? How do we find the strength and courage to keep going? How do we confront the injustices of our lives and the wider world? Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on finding the balance between urgency needed to make change and the patience it takes to make lasting change.

We have seven young people participating in the Our Whole Lives grades 4-5 program. They meet after church twice a month and need a little sustenance. Please see the sign-up sheet on the Welcome Center or Rev. Mollie if you are interested in providing a meal for this group.

Matthew 3:1-6, 13-17

When Jesus came to his cousin John to be baptized, John said, “No way! I’m not worthy!” But Jesus wouldn’t take no for an answer. In fact, Jesus reminds John that it is God who names our worth, not ourselves, and not other people. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on Jesus’s baptism and how we are all seen as worthy from God’s perspective.

New Name Tags!

This month, your Communications Committee will be working on replacing all of our name tags we use for Sunday service. If you take your name tag home, please be sure to bring it in so we have a record of your name while we filter through all the ones hanging on the podium. If you have a preferred name or change in name you’d like to see from a previous name tag, please email Allison Booth at office@lakewooducc.com. We appreciate your patience during this process!

New Concrete Sidewalk

We would like to thank Kathy Nielsen and the Nielsen family for paying for the new concrete sidewalks that run from the east parking lot to the main doors. The sidewalk is in honor of Dave Nielsen who passed away last March. This sidewalk is a wonderful tribute to Dave as it will make it much easier for anyone with a walker, wheelchair, or challenges with mobility to get to the church.

Matthew 2:1-12

There was a time when people were guided by the stars in the sky. They knew where they were and where they were going in relation to the constellations above them. As a church, we are preparing to launch out on a new journey together as we imagine our future. What directions will we go to? How will the spirit lead us? Who shall set the trajectory of our travels? Join us on Epiphany Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the Wise Ones from the East coming to see baby Jesus and how we too can be guided by starlight.
