Blessings to you two...

October 7, 10:00 a.m.

The feast of St. Francis, the patron saint of animals and the poor, is held on October 4. The Care For Creation ministry at Lakewood UCC would like to invite the congregation to a celebration of St. Francis’s care for animals.  On Saturday, October 7, Pastor Curt will be Blessing the Animals in our lives who are our companions or sustain us in one form or another. The invitation is to bring your dogs, cats, rodents, chickens, bees, fish, hedgehogs, reptiles, etc. to be blessed for the work they do and to honor the special relationship between God and all of God’s creatures. If your pet does not play well with others, please feel free to bring a photo to be blessed in their place.

World Communion Sunday

October 1 @ 10:15 am - 11:30 am

0

World Communion Sunday offers us a distinctive opportunity to experience Holy Communion in the context of the global community of faith. The first Sunday of October has become a time when Christians in every culture break bread and pour the cup to remember and affirm Christ as the Head of the Church. On this day, we remember that we are part of the whole body of believers. Whether shared in a grand cathedral, a mud hut, outside on a hilltop, in a meetinghouse, or in a storefront, Christians celebrate the communion liturgy in as many ways as there are congregations.

This Sunday in Worship – Mental Health Awareness Ministry Sunday!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Sunday, September 17, 10:15 am

Jesus prays, “Holy Father, protect in them your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one.” Our hope in times of illness is always to be whole, either again or in the future, even sometimes with God. This is most certainly true in mental illness when perception and body are fractured in biologically based challenges. This Sunday we’ll support and encourage those living with mental illness by diving into Jesus’ prayer for us and hearing from those who have first-hand experience of hope and mental illness.

“But Moses said to God, ‘Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?'” from Exodus 3:1-15
Moses didn’t want the job that God was offering. He didn’t want to go back to Egypt and he didn’t want to have to stand up to Pharaoh. And the truth is he wasn’t really qualified anyway. But God wasn’t taking “no” for an answer. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on burning brightly without burning out and what we can do when God won’t take “no” for an answer.

Harvest Table

We will again be providing a place for people to bring their extra produce so that it can be shared with others. On Sundays, we’ll have a card table set-up with a sign that reads, “Harvest Table.” If you’ve got extra zucchini, tomatoes, kale or whatever, leave it on the table. If you see something you’d like, take it home with you. If you’d like to make a donation, all money collected will go to the Action Center. This is just a small way of reminding ourselves of God’s abundance and our ability to share what we have with one another.

We hope you can join us and be part of our team for the Second Wind walk at Clement Park in Littleton. This fundraiser is especially relevant now with the recent teenage suicides, the second leading cause of death for teenagers in Colorado. The 2nd Wind Fund was started to provide mental health services for the youth who are at risk for suicide, especially those who can’t afford the treatment. The speakers and the Release of the Doves ceremony begin around 10 am, followed by a 1.5 or 3 mile walk. After the walk, there will be a barbecue lunch, live music, and silent auction. Cost is $30, with a t-shirt and lunch included. For more info, contact Linda Royval. Register here under our team name, Lakewood United Church of Christ.

Join us for our annual Worship in the Park service at Prospect Park (44th Ave. and Robb St., Wheat Ridge). If you’ve never been, we choose this location because it has a covered pavilion, plenty of parking, plus a playground and restrooms very nearby. We’ll get things rolling with a pre-service sing-a-long starting at 10:15, then an hour of worship followed by a bring-your-own picnic lunch. We’ll again have homemade root beer floats and water available. This is always one of our most popular services of the year. Please note: no services will be held at Lakewood UCC on August 27.

“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come into God’s presence with singing.” from Psalm 100
St. Augustine once said that when we sing, we pray twice. Music moves our souls and stirs our Spirits. It makes us laugh and cry, it comforts and challenges, and it gives voice to our feelings when we have no words. For more than a decade Anne Rowland and her band have used their musical gifts to inspire us and move us in worship. This Sunday we say good bye to Anne and Company, and also reflect on the meaning and purpose of music in our lives. We hope you’ll join us for what is certain to be a spirit-filled and emotional service of thanksgiving.
