Worship with Us this Sunday

March 19, 2023

10:00am In-person and Facebook Live or replay on Facebook later

It’s the Fourth Sunday of Lent. We will light our Lenten candles and continue our theme of Jesus Met and Known. We will hear the story of the call and anointing of David – such an unlikely choice - in 1Samuel 16: 1-13 and the much argued story of the blind man Jesus healed in John 19: 1-41.

We will sing Kyrie Eleison; I Want Jesus to Walk with Me; Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise; Jesus Tawa Pano; Weave; Sanctuary; God of Grace and God of Glory.

Our 2nd Mile Lent mission partners are Lydia’ House; Unleashing Potential; Heifer International; and Eden Seminary. Florence Simonson will tell us more about Unleashing Potential this week.

Please participate in worship virtually via our livestream on Facebook if that is convenient for you and/or if you have tested positive for Covid in the last 5 days.

Masks should be worn and respected for in-person worship under the following conditions:

1) You have tested positive for COVID 6-10 days ago and you still have symptoms;

2) You are in a high-risk group and/or have underlying conditions;

3) You are more comfortable wearing a mask.

In order to protect individuals and the wider community, we strongly encourage up-to-date vaccinations and boosters against all communicable diseases.

Sunday School

This winter our children are learning about some of the people who met Jesus. Most of these stories are found in the Gospel of John: Nicodemus, the Samaritan woman, the first disciples, a blind man, the little boy with fish and bread, and many more.

Youth are using a new curriculum called Feasting on the Word. This curriculum is lectionary based with activities and discussions around topics of interest to youth as they relate to scripture.

Wisdom requires slowness, stillness, focus, patience and withdrawal from some of the heated demands and controversies of the moment. ~unknown
