You, Me, and We: Healthy Boundaries in Today’s World
Join us June 9 from 3-4:30 at Landlocked Ales (3225 S. Wadsworth Blvd. Lakewood, CO 80227) for a discussion on setting boundaries in today’s fast-paced and interconnected world. We will discuss the value of setting boundaries both in our personal lives and as an open and inclusive community. Is it possible to say “no” and adhere to Christian values? Food is available nearby, beer is optional, openness to good conversation a must. The discussion this month will be facilitated by Cory & Christina Smith.

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.
