Luke 15:1-10
This Sunday we get the familiar parables of the lost sheep and the lost coin. Both parables are told to remind us of the extraordinary lengths God will go to welcome us home when we get lost or wander off. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on being lost, being found, and how God’s grace can bring us home.

Our Whole Lives is Coming to Lakewood!

Our Whole Lives, a comprehensive and developmentally appropriate sexuality curriculum, will be offered at Lakewood UCC in winter/spring of 2020. We are building a program beginning with grades 4-6. We are excited to offer this important piece of faith formation that “helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their relationships, health and behavior in the context of their faith”. We will offer the program for Lakewood UCC members, friends, and the wider community. If you are interested in the program for a young person in your life, please see Rev. Mollie. There are also opportunities for those interested in becoming a facilitator for the grades 4-6 program and other age groups as well. Training is November 15-17 at LaForet. Please see Rev. Mollie for any questions or interest.

Jeremiah 18:1-8
As a kid, I remember getting a lot of “do-overs.” If we had to stop our kickball game because a dog ran on the field, no problem, let’s have a do-over.  If I totally messed up a math test, no problem, you can have a do-over. If I hurt a friend with something I said, apologize and move on. No problem, it’s a do-over. As adults, it feels like we get a lot fewer do-overs. Our mistakes and problems seem to have a lot more sticking power than they did when we were younger. But the good news is God loves to give do-overs. In fact, sometimes even God needs a do-over. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on God as the great Potter and our opportunities to be remade.

We wish him the best of luck, and are excited for this next chapter of his journey! His final day will be September 15. After that service, we will be celebrating his years of ministry here with us.

Luke 14:1, 7-14
Anyone who has planned a big party knows that it gets complicated quickly. Whether you are celebrating a wedding, a birthday, or anniversary, choosing who is on the guest list is difficult. If I invite Sam I guess I have to invite Tory. Can I invite both Chris and Pat even though they are divorced? It may surprise us to learn that Jesus has some advice on how to set the guest list no matter the occasion. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches about honor, hospitality, and approaching life as if it were an open house.

“Shaped for this”

Jeremiah 1:4-10

This week, we hear the call story of the prophet Jeremiah. Like Jeremiah, we can all come up with reasons why we are not the ideal person to do God’s work – too young, too old, too overwhelmed, wrong gender, wrong sexual orientation, wrong ability. But God reminds Jeremiah – and us all, that we are just the right ones for the work of love and liberation, because God has formed us, and God is with us in the work. Join us this Sunday as we worship outside at Prospect Park, with Rev. Mollie preaching, and as we are reminded that we are formed by God for a time such as this.

Hebrews 12:1-3
Perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “It’s a marathon not a sprint.” But what if it’s actually a relay race? How do we receive gifts from those who have come before us in faith and how do we pass them to the next generation? Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the great cloud of witnesses and passing the baton of faith.

Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-12

“Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen,” the author of the book of Hebrews tells us. But where does faith come from? Does God gift it to us like a warm fuzzy sweater? Do we earn it through conquering life’s challenges? Does it grow from seeds that our parents planted within us? Do we find it like a perfect sand dollar on the beach?  Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the roots and shoots of faith.
