Worship with us on
Sunday, May 24, 2015
at 10:15 a.m.  

Today is Pentecost--the day we remember God's gift of the Spirit to the early followers of Christ. The same Spirit continues to empower us today. Talking about the "Holy" Spirit often makes us think that the Spirit is something apart from our everyday lives. So it is suggested that we speak instead about the Spirit of Life--the Spirit that comforts us in grief, that encourages us in difficult times, that brings deep and abiding joy. This is the Spirit of God that makes us alive.

The color for Pentecost is red. We invite everyone to wear red--or other "flame colors" such as orange or yellow--to worship this morning.


Scripture Lessons: Ezekiel 37:1-14; Act 2:1-21

Sermon: "Weapons of the Spirit"

The Rev. William Lovin preaching

 

No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

Nursery care is provided during worship for the youngest children. Children through grade 4 may stay in worship through the children's message and then go to Children's Church. Older children and youth are encouraged to remain in worship. Join us after worship for good (Fair Trade) coffee and great conversation in Rockwood Hall.

Our Mission

OPEN AND AFFIRMING 

Whoever you are, where ever you are on life's journey you are welcome here. 

The Congregational United Church of Christ is an “Open and Affirming” congregation. 

We know, with Paul, that as Christians, we are many members, but are one body in Christ, members of one another, and that we all have different gifts. With Jesus, we affirm that we are called to love our neighbors as ourselves, that we are called to act as agents of reconciliation and wholeness within the world and within the Church itself. We recognize the presence of ignorance, fear and hatred in the Church and in our culture, and covenant to not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, nor any other irrelevant factor, and we seek to include and support those who, because of this fear and prejudice, find themselves in exile from a spiritual community. 

We welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people to worship with us, join our congregation, and take an active role in our leadership, ministry, and mission.
