Denver Gay PrideFest Parade

June 18 @ 7:45 am - 12:00 pm

0

If you would like to carpool and/or if you’ll need to be riding in our trucks rather than walking the parade route, meet at the church at 7:45 (please park on the street and not in the parking lot). If you’d like to sleep in a little longer, you can meet up with Lakewood UCC and the rest of the Rocky Mountain Conference UCC group at Cheeseman Park by or before 8:45. Here is the information important to remember: Wear red, bring a water bottle, wear sun gear (sunscreen, hat, cool shades), bring snacks if you’ll need to eat before noon, and our parade location is blue #14. Knowing the parade location is important so you don’t get lost in the madness. Also, no dogs. Email or call Logan (loganleebennett@gmail.com 719-433-2390) with any questions.

Out to Lunch Bunch

June 25 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

0

It’s fun to stick around after Sunday worship, sipping coffee and chatting with your fellow Lakewood UCCers, right? But you don’t get much time to socialize before everyone goes their separate ways. So what’s the solution? Out-to-Lunch Bunch! Everyone is invited to join us after the service at a local restaurant (yet to be determined) as we eat a good meal and get to know each other better. Contact: Karen Coiner or Len Ewald.

Sunday, June 4, 10:15 am

Join us this Sunday for a worship party of epic proportions. We’ll be celebrating the end of our Ministry Expansion Campaign. Both the bell and chancel choirs are doing their final numbers of the season. It’s a communion Sunday. And, it just so happens to be the day we celebrate the Holy Spirit coming to people as tongues of fire, descending like a dove at Pentecost. If it sounds like a party you want to join, it is.

Sunday, May 28, 10:15 am

“People of Athens…I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god” from Acts 17:22-29

Back in the day of Paul, Athens was a bustling city where people of all different religious beliefs gathered. While teaching there, he noticed an altar dedicated, “To an unknown God.” He then tells the people about the God that he has come to know in Jesus Christ. How would you describe the God you know and worship? How do you live out your faith? What would you say if someone asked you, “why do you believe?” Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on faith, doubt, and what it means to know God.

June 22:  Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. 95 min. Animated. Rated G.
Twelve-year-old Ted lives in a place virtually devoid of nature; no flowers or trees grow in the town of Thneedville.Ted would very much like to win the heart of Audrey, the girl of his dreams, but to do this, he must find that which she most desires: a Truffula tree. To get it, Ted delves into the story of the Lorax, once the gruff guardian of the forest, and the Once-ler, who let greed overtake his respect for nature. Spoiler alert: We hear that some kind of ‘Truffula Tree’ related activity may follow the film…

 

June 29:  National Geographic’s Before the Flood with Leonardo DiCaprio.  2016.  96 min. Documentary. Rated PG.
This highly-rated, new film features a look at how climate change affects our environment and what society can do to prevent the demise of endangered species, ecosystems and native communities across the planet.

 

Summer Film Series, July: I Was in Prison and You Visited Me

According to recent statistics, more than 2.3 million people are currently incarcerated in various jails and prisons throughout the United States. We also incarcerate a higher percentage of our population than any other country in the world. The reasons are complicated: race, class, crime, politics, and public policy all play a part. Given the staggering numbers, it seems worthwhile to talk about prisons, prisoners, freedom, redemption, and what this all means for us communally and spiritually. This year we’ll show 4 films about or set in prisons.

 

July 6: Shawshank Redemption (R)

This 1994 film starring Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins received 7 Oscar nominations including Best Picture. It tells the story of the deep friendship created and various hardships overcome by two men in a prison in 1947 Maine prison.

July 13: O Brother, Where Art Thou? (PG-13)

This 2000 film is loosely based on Homer’s Odessey, O Brother, Where Art Thou? and tells the story of 3 men sprung from a chain gang in 1930’s Mississippi. Their goal is to reach their buried treasure before it’s forever unrecoverable. Full of wonderful music, odd characters, and stellar performances, this Cohen Brothers’ film is a delightful and humorous look at what it means to go home.

July 20: Dead Man Walking (R)

This 1995 film stars Susan Sarandon in her Oscar-winning performance as Sister Helen Prejean, a real-life nun who co-wrote the screenplay. Dead Man Walking tells the story of convicted death row inmate, Matthew Poncelet (played by Sean Penn), and Sister Prejean as they desperately try to gain a stay of execution from the governor or the courts. Prejean struggles with the brutality of his crime while trying to help the spiritual life of the man who committed it.

This 2016 Netflix Original Documentary shows in vivid detail the uncomfortable and long history of race and incarceration in the United States. Named after the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery, the film 13th talks about how imprisonment in the US is a new kind of slavery with undeniable ties to the politics of race.
