Who Do You Say that I Am

September 13, 10:15 a.m.

Jesus asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” And they answered him, “John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.” He asked them, “But who do you say that I am?”
from Mark 8:27-36

After 2,000 years of Jesus paintings, Jesus sculptures, Jesus books, Jesus movies, and, just in general, a whole lot of Jesus, it’s hard to have a new thought on the subject. And yet, in spite of all the Jesus paraphernalia in our lives (or maybe because of it), most of us still struggle to answer the question posed above:”Who do you say that I am?” Who was Jesus? What was he trying to accomplish? Why does it matter? Join us on Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches, our choirs are back in action, and we kick off a new program year with worship and a celebratory potluck. You don’t need to sign up for a specific dish—just bring whatever strikes your fancy.

Basically, if you’re trying to figure out how to take scripture that was written at least 2,000 years ago and apply it to your life in the modern world, this is the perfect place to do it.

Jesus Said What

September 6, 10:15 a.m.

“A woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit immediately heard about him, and she came and bowed down at his feet. Now the woman was a Gentile, of Syrophoenician origin. She begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter. He said to her, “Let the children be fed first, for it is not fair to take the children’s food and throw it to the dogs.” But she answered him, “Sir, even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”
from Mark 7:24-37

This is one of those stories where, when you read it the first time, you’re just cruising along, not really paying attention, because it’s one more person who wants Jesus to work his magic and do some healing. Ho hum. Been there, done that. And then you get to the part where Jesus starts talking about children and dogs. And somewhere at the back of your brain, a little voice says, “Wait, WHAT?!?” Did Jesus just call that woman’s daughter a dog? What the heck is going on here?” Good questions. What IS going on here? Is Jesus being a gigantic jerk? Because it sure seems like it. Join us on Sunday as Pastor Curt proposes an answer that might surprise you.

Fall Kick-Off and Potluck

September 13, 2015 @ 10:15 am - 11:15 am

Summer tends to be the sleepy season at Lakewood UCC. School lets out, people go on vacation, and church activities shift down a gear. Everything just moves a little slower. Aaah. Hopefully by now though, everyone’s feeling rested and eager to get going again. We’ll kick off our Fall season on September 13 with our choirs back in action and a celebratory potluck after the service. You don’t need to sign up—just bring whatever takes your fancy. Our youth group, YAC, will have its own kick-off the following week. More information on that to come!

Worship in the Park

August 30, 10:15 a.m.

“Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart.”
from Psalm 111

Join us for one of our favorite services of the year—our annual “Worship in the Park” at Prospect Park (11300 W. 44th Ave., between Kipling and Ward). We’ll begin with a “gospel sing-along,” and then launch into the rest of the service, which will include a sermon by Pastor Curt on why we worship. You’re invited to come with a picnic lunch to eat after the service. Phil and Steve Goebel will bring their famous homemade root beer, and the Fellowship Committee will provide ice-cream for floats.Wo
