1 Kings 9:1-15a
The sounds of summer are in full swing – barbecues, splashing in pools and lakes, kids running around the neighborhoods, crackling of campfires. In the midst of the start of summer, we hear the story of Elijah seeking God’s presence on a mountainside. Elijah, who has experienced God in big and loud ways, now hears God in an unexpected way- in the sound of silence. How do we make space to hear God in obvious and unexpected ways? Join us this Sunday as Rev. Mollie preaches on the sounds of silence and the substance we find in the pause.

Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31
In this week’s reading from Proverbs, we hear a new voice—Woman Wisdom! She stakes her claim at the busiest intersection in town and shouts to the passers-by how she was present with God before creation began. What might Woman Wisdom have to say to us? What might she implore us to shout at the busiest intersections in town? Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on bold proclamation and how participating in PrideFest is a critical part of our witness to God’s unconditional love.

Pentecost is more than a fiery dove descending on the heads of the Apostles and imparting the ability to speak in tongues. Pentecost is alive for us today in Lakewood UCC in the ways that invite us to act on God’s Spirit of Divine Love. We recognize that the Holy Spirit is accessible to everyone on our community. We act on that Spirit as the hands, head, and feet of God in the world.  But what expectations do we have for resolving the problems and challenges we face? Come join us this Sunday as guest preacher Dr. Paul Michalec preaches on a modern interpretation of Pentecost as a gift given to all, a call to action, and the challenge of accepting the truth that our actions may not change the world in our lifetime.

This Sunday is a big day in the life of our church. We’ll have a baptism and also will receive communion. Plus, we have a congregational meeting following church. In John’s gospel, Jesus prays for his disciples “that they may all be one.” Not only is he talking about those disciples, but ALL of Jesus’ disciples, including us. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on sacraments, unity in the midst of diversity, and what oneness in Christ means to us.

Easter is the pinnacle of the year for Christians throughout the world as we celebrate the good news of Christ’s resurrection and what it means for us to be a resurrection people. This year we hear the story of Easter from the gospel of John where Mary encounters the risen Christ and thinks he is the gardener. How could she not recognize him? Join us this Sunday for a wonderful Easter worship and a sermon about how we sometimes blind ourselves to good news because we let our expectations get in the way.

Palm Sunday is the joyous celebration of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. The people were so excited to see him that they threw their cloaks before him and waved branches as he passed. And it was a very good day. But it also was the beginning of what would turn out to be a very hard week for Jesus and his disciples. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the twin peaks of Palm Sunday and Easter and the valley that lies between them.
