On Monday, August 21, a solar eclipse will cross the entire United States. Eclipses have long caused wonder and sometimes fear. They have caught the attention of prophets. They have been the subject of sermons. This Sunday we’ll consider the upcoming eclipse and the wonder of all creation.

 

SCRIPTURE LESSONS: Jeremiah 10:1-5; Amos 8:4-10

SERMON:   “The Meaning of the Eclipse”

The Rev. William Lovin preaching

 

DUET                   “The King of Love My Shepherd Is”

                   Ama Mothershed and Sarah Fairfield

 

CHILDREN’S CHURCH continues throughout the summer months. The Children's Church theme for the summer is the story of Noah and the Ark.  A model of the Ark is under construction.

 

ToGather Together (TGTg) Offering, Sunday, August 20. ToGather Together provides free school supplies for 3,000 children & youth in need in Johnson County.  TGTg is a project started by the Consultation of Religious Communities and involves approximately 30 different faith communities, many businesses, Johnson County social services groups and many, many individuals.  As the need continues to grow in our area we are seeing an increase in requests—what started as an effort to provide supplies for 200 children from the years 2000-2007 has now grown to over 3,000 children & youth in 30 schools, including 22 elementary schools, 5 junior high schools and 3 high schools. As in recent years, our Mission Board will receive a special offering to be used by ICCSD schools to purchase school supplies to support children& youth in Johnson County.  The offering will be received during worship this coming Sunday.

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.
