This Sunday marks the end of the church year, as we’ll start a new year with Advent. Well before the ball drops in Times Square, it is a time to reflect on the ways God has been at work in our world, life, and self throughout the past year. Before we enter fully into Advent and preparing for the Christ child, this gives us a moment to pause, to prepare for what is yet to come, a time to marvel at the present. Join us this Sunday as Rev. Mollie preaches on God’s time and ways that God is with us from the beginning to end, and everything in between.
A-caroling we will go! Join us after worship as we visit our folks who are sick or shut-in. Help spread Christmas cheer to those who cannot make it to church. It should be great family fun for all. Sign up on the Welcome Center, or contact Travis Kornegay for more information.

Let’s face it, most of us are worriers. We tend to fret over our jobs, our homes, even what clothes to wear. Sure, we take occasional breaks from our worry. Thanksgiving is time to relax, if only for a few hours, and give thanks for the abundance God has provided. Join us this Sunday as Rev. Curt preaches on how we can turn Thanksgiving into ‘Thanksliving’ all year round.
How about purchasing that special Christmas gift that will eclipse the joy of giving and receiving it – ‘Gifts That Give Back’. The place to get these Gifts that Give Back is at the Alternative Gift Market being held in the lobby before and after church service on December 3 and 10. Any gift that you purchase at the Alternative Gift Market will support worthy social causes with real economic and environmental impacts, both here in Denver and across the globe. These include: AfricAid, Church World Service, Earth Links, Heifer International, SERRV, and Women’s Bean Project (also including our local church favorite, Incredible Edibles). To learn more, visit the Mission, Outreach, and Evangelism Kiosk in the lobby. Thank you for shopping!
Celebrate new members with us! Our new members will be invited to join the church, photographed, prayed for, chatted with, and generally welcomed into our midst. Be here for this special day in the life of our church. If you are interested in becoming a member, please Contact Rev, Mollie for more information.
Sunday, October 28, November 4, and November 11
Here at Lakewood UCC we are truly blessed! We are a thriving congregation with many activities and opportunities to participate in the life of the church. This year’s stewardship theme is, “What Gifts Can We Offer?” I Peter 4:10 encourages us to “…serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.” We thank God for all of the many gifts we have among us and we seek to use them to serve the Lord through this church. This year’s stewardship campaign will be held on October 28, November 4, and November 11. Pledge cards will be dedicated during the November 11 service, and afterward, the Stewardship Committee will host a thank you luncheon for the congregation. Come join us as we discover what gifts we can offer and praise God for all of our blessings! Read the 2019 Narrative Budget.

A rich young man came to Jesus and asked what it takes to inherit eternal life. Jesus answers, “You already know. Keep the commandments.” But the young man wasn’t satisfied. He wanted to do more. He wanted to go the extra mile. And Jesus responds, “In that case, you lack one thing.” Each of us lacks one thing. Some of us more than one, but all of us have something that’s holding us back from becoming the fullest version of ourselves. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the things we have, the things we lack, and the journey of going the extra mile.
We’re excited to announce Lakewood UCC’s upcoming Holiday Boutique! Saturday, November 17th, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Many people are feeling hurt and angry right now. The confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh have again raised questions about sexual assault, rape culture, and the credibility of women speaking about their own experiences. And then we get this quote from the book of James, “let everyone be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger; for your anger does not produce God’s righteousness.” My response, “neither does acceptance or silence.” Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on using our voices (and anger) to produce the kind of change we need.
