Sometimes religious people think that it’s all about the rules. Do this. Don’t do that. Here’s a sin, there’s a sin, everywhere a sin, sin. Rules themselves aren’t bad, but when it becomes more about the rule itself and less about the reason for the rule we can run into some trouble. In this week’s reading the prophet Jeremiah declares that the covenant between God and God’s people is not about external rules. It’s about what’s in our hearts. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on law and on love and how God turns the tables on keeping covenant.

In our world, we often hear that people get what they deserve. We hear that we make our own destiny. We hear that through hard work we can accomplish anything. But in God’s world, we get even when we don’t deserve. In God’s world, being spiritually dead is an opportunity to find new life. In God’s world, good works are the result, not the means, of our salvation. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on how our salvation has nothing to do with hell and everything to do with living in the here and now.

Christ has risen! Easter is the high point in the Christian calendar and a day of great joy and celebration. Again this year, we will be creating a “living cross” as a symbol of resurrection and new life. All are invited to bring a flower to put on the cross following worship. We will have plenty of flowers available if you are unable to bring your own. Join us for worship beginning at 10:15 am, but we encourage you to arrive by 10:00 am as the sanctuary is usually very full this day.

As a child, I never knew that sometimes even Jesus got angry. The story of Jesus cleansing the temple is not one we typically teach to our children or often hear preached from the pulpit. We don’t like the thought of an angry Jesus. But some anger is justified. Some anger is a righteous anger at the injustice and indignities of the world. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on how the right kind of anger can be just what is needed to bring about the change God’s kingdom demands.

Hosanna! Hosanna!


Palm Sunday brings the annual brunch we all love and enjoy! All are welcome to come and partake, and you may bring a dish to share if you choose. Just remember all dishes must contain no nuts of any kind!  As promised, we rotate folks alphabetically to an assigned dish. If your name begins with: A-F – bring a salad; G-M – bring a dessert; N-Z – bring a main dish. We look forward to seeing you for this fun, family-friendly tradition.

 

Tenebrae Service and Communion

March 29 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

0

On Holy Thursday, sometimes called “Maundy Thursday,” we recall the Last Supper, as well as the betrayal and arrest of Jesus. The word “Maundy” is rooted in the Latin word “mandatum” which means: “to give, to entrust, to order.” According to John’s gospel, on the night of the last supper, Jesus gives his disciples a commandment: “that you love one another; even as I have loved you, you also ought to love one another” (John 13:34).

Tenebrae means “Service of Shadows”, and is marked by 12 readings of scripture by candle light and punctuated with music. After each reading, one candle is extinguished and the sanctuary becomes progressively darker, concluding with complete darkness. This is often regarded as one of the most powerful worship services of the year. The Frugal Meal and Worship are each a separate event, so feel free to come to one or both of these offerings.

We begin this service at 6:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall with a frugal meal of soup and bread, moving to the sanctuary at 7:30 for our Tenebrae Worship and Communion. The Frugal Meal and Worship service are each a separate event, so feel free to come to one or both of these offerings.
