Join us for a presentation at Lakewood UCC following the worship service to learn more about the obstacles Colorado Dreamers face in gaining access to postsecondary education and how you can help. This presentation will be given by members of the Metropolitan State University of Denver’s (MSU Denver’s) Dreamer Network. This organization is comprised of dedicated professionals within the university whose goal is to advocate for equitable policies, educate the community, plan events and raise funds to support Dreamers students. MSU Denver serves a larger number of undocumented students who qualify for in-state tuition than any other 2- or 4-year institution in Colorado.

Have you ever talked with a person and felt you simply couldn’t understand what the other was saying? You speak the same language but see the world so differently that you can’t talk across the divide? The story of Pentecost from Acts 2 is the story of the Holy Spirit coming upon the people and giving them the ability to understand each other even though they all speak different languages. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on current day Pentecost moments and how the Holy Spirit unites us in our diversity. Don’t forget to wear red!

What is love? How do we experience it? How do we demonstrate it? How do we receive it? We hear at church all the time that God’s love is unconditional, but how does that change how we live? Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on how experiencing God’s love means that we have to love the people in our lives, whether we like them or not.

Is church an eye in the storm of life, a place of safety and refuge? Is church a place of encountering and being challenged by differences? Perhaps it is a bit of both – a community of sanctuary and rest, while being a place of challenges and growth as we bump into each other’s differences. Join us in worship this Sunday as our Youth share their perspectives on what church is to them: an eye in the storm, a place of accepting and embracing differences, community based in unity, yet without uniformity. We will celebrate communion during this creative intergenerational service.

Can a person have privilege and also struggle to overcome long odds? Can a person wield power in one part of their life, and yet, face oppression in another? The fancy term for it is. “intersectionality.” It means that none of us fit neatly into a single category or box. In today’s reading from Acts, we meet an Ethiopian Eunuch riding in a chariot. He’s an outsider and also a person of wealth. He’s denied full participation in temple worship, but has power and influence at the same time. And he wants to be baptized. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on how far we are willing to go to be welcomed and to welcome others into the church.
