Luke 4:14-21
Do you have a word, a phrase, a mantra, or a scripture that inspires you? When you think about how others would describe you what comes to mind? When Jesus had the opportunity to preach his very first sermon, he chose a passage about good news for the poor, release for the captives, sight for the blind, and freedom for the oppressed. These concepts inspired and defined him and his ministry. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on failure, fulfillment, and finding just the right inspiration to keep us going.

John 2:1-11

Many of us are familiar with the biblical story of Jesus turning water into wine. And while this is an impressive feat, the question still remains why? What point was Jesus trying to prove? Was he just showing off, or was there a different reason he chose this miracle at this time? Join us on Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the Wedding at Cana and why gallons of good wine isn’t the only reason to celebrate.

Womxn’s March

January 19 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

0

No matter who you are or how you identify, we all have a reason to march.

I urge all of us to reflect on why we are going, and how we are called to join and support each other in this effort to “do better”.  All of us can help – we can share the word to everyone we know that they are welcome to join Lakewood UCC in marching, we can meet the morning of 1/19/19 to join in prayer for guidance and support, we can offer help to the march organizers, we can help by providing a juice or coffee to get us going, and we can march!

We will meet at the church on Saturday 1/19 at 9:00-9:15. The March begins at 10:30 at Civic Center Park and we will meet at the big red chair at the Denver Library. We need assistance with carpools, coffee, and banners/balloons. If you can help, please contact Sue Johns or Matt Teeuwen.

 

The theme of the event is Listen. Unite. Act.  For more information (including why its title is Womxn’s March), please visit https://www.womensmarchdenver.org/

Luke 3: 15-17, 21-22
We tend to think of baptism in one of two ways: something we do to infants and children to bring them into the Christian faith, or as something a person chooses for themselves because they want to commit their lives to following Jesus. But Jesus was a full-grown adult when he was baptized and didn’t seem to want to follow himself. Which begs the question, “how did we get from Jesus’ baptism to our modern understandings of the sacrament?” Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on water, Spirit, ritual, and how shifting our thinking about baptism can shift our perspective on who we are and who God can be.

Faith Formation Spring Training

All Faith Formation Companions (leaders) and those who are interested in becoming a Sunday Morning Faith Formation Companion are asked to attend a brief thirty-minute training on Sunday, January 6.  We will be going over the winter and spring curriculum of Biblical and modern-day Prophets, truth tellers, proclaimers, those that call out and announce, reminding people of God’s love.

Resolution Sunday

January 13 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

0

What is your New Year’s resolution?   Are you determined to have a more healthy diet?  Go gluten free?  Eat more veggies?  Or, have you decided to begin a slow and easy exercise or meditation program?  Maybe you want to commit to listening to less news and replace that time with a good book?   Do you want to become more prayerful or are determined to figure out ways to express your gratitude? Maybe you’re like many of us: you begin the year with gusto and two weeks later, you are off track!  So… Fellowship announces our first all-church event.

We invite you to bring a snack that supports your New Year’s Resolution.  It might be fresh veggies, a Keto or gluten free snack, camomile tea or indulgent fudge!!!  Have fun with this.  We’ll “restart our resolutions!”  Good luck!
