It’s been a while since our last Adult Education offering, so we’re excited to announce that our CE Director, Jodi Bushdiecker, will be leading a class for three Mondays at the end of October and the beginning of November. Join us for a conversation about the role of the church in a changing world, based on a video series featuring some of the greats: NT Wright, Hannah Terry, Brian Zahnd, Walter Brueggemann, Richard Rohr, Rachel Held Evans, and Malcolm Guite. We’ll cover two videos per session, and each session stands alone. Come to as many or as few sessions as you want! If you need childcare, contact Jodi at least 3 days prior.

Power and Glory

October 18, 10:15 a.m.

James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward and said to Jesus, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.” He said to them, “What is it you want me to do for you?” They said, “Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.” But he said to them, “You do not know what you are asking.” 
from Mark 10:35-45

This is a pretty gutsy move on the part of James and John, right? This is like if you marched up to the CEO of your company and said, “Hey, my brother and I want to be your Vice Presidents. Forever.” James and John don’t just want to be run-of-the-mill disciples. They want to be special, set apart, with an ownership stake in the Jesus revolution. They want to make sure they get a big slice of the pie when Jesus is finally in charge. And to all of this, Jesus says, “Sorry, but that’s not how it works . . .” Join us on Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches power, love, and standing at the back of the line.

Second Sunday Snacks

October 11, 2015 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Here at Lakewood UCC, we use the word “Fellowship” to refer to the coffee-and-snacks hour following Sunday worship. It’s a much-loved tradition, and we hope we’ll still be munching on cookies and chatting with each other 50 years from now. Our system for who provides those cookies, however, and how and when they do it, is changing. Starting Sunday, September 6, you’ll no longer see a clipboard on the Narthex asking people to sign up to host Fellowship. Instead, we’re introducing something we call “Second Sunday Snacks.” What this means is that on the second Sunday of each month, a Board, Committee, or other church group will host Fellowship. If you’re part of that group, be creative! Theme the snacks you bring! Celebrate a special occasion! Or just make something up! The other Sundays of the month, coffee and lemonade will be served. To sign up your group, please contact Gwen Rush.

World Communion Sunday

October 4, 10:15 a.m.

“The way God designed our bodies is a model for understanding our lives together as a church: every part dependent on every other part, the parts we mention and the parts we don’t, the parts we see and the parts we don’t. If one part hurts, every other part is involved in the hurt, and in the healing.”
from 1 Corinthians 12:25-31 (The Message)

We use the word “church” to mean a lot of different things. Sometimes “church” is a building. Sometimes it’s the people who meet in that building and the stuff they do together. Sometimes it refers to a local congregation, like Lakewood UCC. And sometimes it refers to a whole bunch of congregations joined by common history or theology. So, the United Church of Christ is a “church”—it says so, right there in the name! These are all useful ways to talk about “church,” but there’s a bigger meaning of the word, and that’s the meaning behind this Sunday’s worship service. Join us as we, together with Christians all over the world, celebrate the unity of the global Church.
