The story of Nicodemus and Jesus’ interactions gives us much to ponder as Jesus challenges Nicodemus to move beyond his intellect to embodying his faith. Do we have to abandon our knowledge and intellect to live as Spirit-filled people?  Or is it an invitation to be challenged and stretched, living into what we cannot explain or define away? Is it an either/or, or a both/and? Join us in worship on Sunday as Rev. Mollie preaches on one of the most commonly used, and perhaps most misunderstood verses of the Bible.

Have you ever talked with a person and felt you simply couldn’t understand what the other was saying? You speak the same language but see the world so differently that you can’t talk across the divide? The story of Pentecost from Acts 2 is the story of the Holy Spirit coming upon the people and giving them the ability to understand each other even though they all speak different languages. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on current day Pentecost moments and how the Holy Spirit unites us in our diversity. Don’t forget to wear red!

What is love? How do we experience it? How do we demonstrate it? How do we receive it? We hear at church all the time that God’s love is unconditional, but how does that change how we live? Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on how experiencing God’s love means that we have to love the people in our lives, whether we like them or not.

Is church an eye in the storm of life, a place of safety and refuge? Is church a place of encountering and being challenged by differences? Perhaps it is a bit of both – a community of sanctuary and rest, while being a place of challenges and growth as we bump into each other’s differences. Join us in worship this Sunday as our Youth share their perspectives on what church is to them: an eye in the storm, a place of accepting and embracing differences, community based in unity, yet without uniformity. We will celebrate communion during this creative intergenerational service.

Can a person have privilege and also struggle to overcome long odds? Can a person wield power in one part of their life, and yet, face oppression in another? The fancy term for it is. “intersectionality.” It means that none of us fit neatly into a single category or box. In today’s reading from Acts, we meet an Ethiopian Eunuch riding in a chariot. He’s an outsider and also a person of wealth. He’s denied full participation in temple worship, but has power and influence at the same time. And he wants to be baptized. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on how far we are willing to go to be welcomed and to welcome others into the church.

The Parable of the Good Soil. One of the most famous of the 46 Parables of Jesus, but what relevance does it have in our world today? Is it a parable about the Earth, or an invitation to be Stewards of the Earth? Continuing our table-turning study of the Good News, Mark 4:1-20 is told anew by the Care for Creation Ministry and LaPuente Mission Team, with Tom Keefe preaching.

In the midst of the season of Easter, still in a world that is full of hurt, pain, injustice, and sadness, we are asked to witness to the resurrection.  How do we tell our own stories of new life and transformation in the midst of the hardships of the world? In a time where evangelism seems like a word we’d rather not utter, how can we share the importance of our faith with others?  Join us this Sunday in worship, as Rev. Mollie preaches and we are invited to walk side by side with one another, as we tell our stories and witness to the stories of others.

For Christians, Easter is a season, not just one day. In fact, living as resurrection people is something we are called to all year round. Whatever happened on that first Easter morning has reverberations that go beyond Easter Sunday. This Sunday begins several weeks of stories of Jesus’s resurrection appearances. Jesus, again and again, is trying to convince the disciples that he is not gone but is actually still very much among them. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on doubt, faith, and what happens when we are open to believing in what we can’t see.

Christ has risen! Easter is the high point in the Christian calendar and a day of great joy and celebration. Again this year, we will be creating a “living cross” as a symbol of resurrection and new life. All are invited to bring a flower to put on the cross prior to the worship service. We will have plenty of flowers available if you are unable to bring your own. We will celebrate the resurrection with an intergenerational service on Easter, with Faith Formation staying in worship. There will be special activity bags and nursery care available. Join us for worship beginning at 10:15 am, but we encourage you to arrive by 9:30 am as the sanctuary is usually very full this day.
