The Big Advent Event

December 2 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Annual Advent Event is upon us! Let’s kick off the season on December 2 with a party! Come to Lakewood UCC to deck the halls (and the sanctuary). There will be holiday snacks for eating, holiday crafts for kids and adults alike, and plenty of holiday joy to share with one another. This is personally one of my favorite Lakewood UCC traditions. So join us for the Annual Advent Event as we enter this busy and beautiful season.

And if you a particularly arts/crafts-minded person, we can use your help! Please contact Logan if you are interested in supervising one of our craft tables. Instructions and materials will be provided in abundance, along with gratitude!

This Sunday in Worship

Sunday, November 12, 10:15 am


This is the third and final week of our Stewardship series focused on Celebrating our WOW Moments: Growing Faith, Giving Thanks, and Increasing Love. There is an old children’s song called, “The Magic Penny” which says, “love is something that if you give it away, you end up having more.” God calls us to be reckless in our loving, giving it away wherever and to whomever we can. This week in worship we’ll focus on our increasing love and how God’s love is an inexhaustible well from which we draw. Additionally, we’ll collect our 2018 pledge cards and join together in a celebratory luncheon following worship. This will be a great Sunday not to be missed! Check out our Narrative Budget for more information on our Stewardship Campaign.

Thanksgiving Fellowship

0

On Sunday, November 26, you can turn your Thanksgiving leftovers into a Fellowship snack. Will you have leftover sweet bread, apple pie squares, or cold veggies to share with your church family? Let’s get creative with those leftovers and share our abundance!

Poinsettias

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Help us brighten the church this Advent season by ordering a poinsettia! Or two! Or three! The deadline for orders is Sunday, December 3. Fill out a form on the Welcome Center this Sunday, specifying how many poinsettias you want, what size, and what color. Then drop the form with your payment in Daryl Gerboth’s Office. The plants will arrive in time for our Advent on December 17, when they’ll be placed around the church, and will remain there until our Christmas Eve service, after which you’re invited to bring yours home and enjoy it for the rest of its natural life.

Sunday, November 5, 10:15 am

 


This is week 2 on our Stewardship theme of Celebrating our WOW Moments: Growing Faith, Giving Thanks, and Increasing Love. This week we focus on gratitude and thanksgiving. This time of year we hear a lot about being thankful, but to what or to whom are we thankful? Good luck? Dumb luck? Or perhaps even what seemed like bad luck at the time? Or is our gratitude and thankfulness grounded in something deeper than luck and chance? Join us this week as Pastor Curt preaches on Paul’s words about, “not ceasing to give thanks” even in the midst of trial and tribulation.

As part of our work with the Lakewood Faith Coalition, your Mission, Outreach, and Evangelism board is starting to develop a relationship with Deane Elementary School, a Title 1 school in Lakewood. Of the many things Deane Elementary provides to its students and families is access to a food pantry. As our first effort to help Deane Elementary, its students, and their families, we will be collecting donations for their food pantry on November 19 and 26. Items they are requesting include:

  • Whole grain cereal, like Raisin Bran, Honey Nut Cheerios, Granola, etc.
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • One-minute rice
  • Ranch dressing
  • Buttermilk or similar pancake mix boxes

If you would like to donate to this cause, please bring your donation to the church on one of those Sundays. There will be a collection box in the fellowship hall. Please consider donating to this school in need. Remember, no donation is too small!
