Exodus 1:8-2:10

In this week’s Scripture, we have the origin story of baby Moses, set by his mother in the river to save him from death, drawn out of the water by Pharaoh’s daughter. This tender story is set with a backdrop of Pharaoh’s order to kill all the Hebrew’s sons, based in false fear of the Hebrew people. Moses, who grows up to lead his people (the Israelites) out of captivity and slavery, to the promised land, was raised, in part, by Pharaoh’s daughter. This story brings up questions that are just pertinent today – why does one group of people fear another group of people? What happens when we truly care for each other’s children, not just our own? Join us in worship this Sunday as Rev. Mollie preaches on the compassion of caring for all God’s children.

Genesis 32:22-31

This Sunday we hear the story of Jacob wrestling with an angel. This moment marks a turning point for Jacob. Prior to this event Jacob has been a pretty shady fellow. But after struggling with an angel all night he is ready to turn over a new leaf. And he gets a new name, Israel, in the process. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on wrestling with God and the transformative power of a blessing.

Romans 8:26-39

Some Christians seem to think that God’s favorite thing is keeping score. They think there is a column for each of us with things we’ve done right and things we’ve done wrong. And if we get to the end of our days and there is more stuff in the “done wrong” column then we are in big trouble. But in his letter to the Romans, Paul makes it crystal clear that God isn’t keeping score. God’s love revealed in Jesus threw away the divine pen and paper forever. What is able to separate us from God’s love in Jesus? According to Paul, absolutely nothing! How does it change the way we think about God when we know God’s not keeping score? How does it change the way we live? Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on how we cannot be separated from God’s love and how that truth changes everything.

Mission and Outreach Opportunity

In this time of social distancing, it may be hard for some of us to find a way to reach out to our community. In past years, we have asked congregants to bring donated school supplies to church for the Action Center’s annual distribution in August.The Action Center provides almost 5,000 Jefferson County homeless children in Pre-K through Grade 12 with a bag of school supplies and a new backpack. This year we can still donate school supplies – but it will be done online!  The MOE Board has set up a donation page for LUCC as a team endeavor.  The goal is to donate $500 of school supplies – but perhaps we could even surpass that figure! In order to donate as part of the Lakewood UCC team, please go to the following site:  roonga.com/lucc. On that page, you will see a list of the school supplies needed by the Action Center and you can select which supplies to donate. It’s quick, it’s easy, and you can make a difference for these kids!  They will be distributing the supplies on August 10-15, so make sure you do it soon. If you have any questions, contact Carolyn Ewald at 303-937-1577.Thank you!
