2 Corinthians 5:16-21

As people living in this world, we know “Everything is connected.” Sometimes we need reminders of our connectedness so we can live and think more ecologically, with all of creation in mind, not just humanity. Join for a special Care for Creation themed worship service this Sunday as Rev. Peter Sawtell brings us a much-needed word of connectedness and reconciliation through an eco-theology lens.

While we know parking on Sundays may occasionally come as a challenge, we would like to kindly remind the congregation to please be mindful of our neighbors surrounding the church and to be cautious to not block or impede any driveways. We appreciate your understanding!

YAC recently contributed to the efforts of Soul Box Project, and would like to invite you to add to it as well. Soul Box Project is a national community art project that displays paper origami boxes for every person killed or injured by gunfire since 2014. First Baptist Church of Denver is leading efforts to create 30,000 boxes from communities across Colorado, as a way to foster hope, promote healing and to increase awareness. They will then be sent to a national display in Washington DC. Instructions and papers are available on the Welcome Center and here https://soulboxproject.org/home. We will collect them until March 15.

1 Corinthians 3:1-9

In Sunday’s reading from I Corinthians, Paul tells the people that they are still behaving like children and clearly not mature enough to be good ambassadors for the Gospel. He mentions jealousy, quarreling, and infighting among the members of the early church. At the center of the problem is the question of who gets credit for the good work the church is doing. Paul’s answer is God and God alone. While we each have a part to play—some plant and some water—at the end of the day, it is God who gives the growth. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Church preaches on giving credit where credit is due and how we can all benefit from a deeper reflection on our role in the unfolding of God’s kingdom among us.

Matthew 5:13-20

In this week’s Gospel reading, Jesus reminds us “You are the salt of the earth! You are the light of the world! Let your light shine!” But sometimes, when we feel small and insignificant, or when we feel overwhelmed and disheartened, trusting our God-given worth is difficult. How can our small piece of what we have to offer help bring the Realm of God more fully to earth? Join us this Sunday as Rev. Mollie preaches on letting ourselves shine for the Glory of God and the transformation of the world.  *Thanks to The Salt Project for this week’s sermon title

Matthew 5:1-12

Jesus has a strange way of looking at the world. He says that we are blessed when we mourn. He says we are blessed when we are persecuted. He says that we are blessed when people say terrible things about us because of what we believe. If those are “blessings” what does it feel like when we are cursed? But maybe being blessed isn’t the same as feeling happy, or fortunate, or like we’re on top of the world. Maybe being blessed is something that happens despite how we “feel.” Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on how God’s blessing creeps into the difficult and challenging places in our lives, and how even when things aren’t going our way, we can still count our blessings.
