Parable Study Continues At Shadow Rock, February 8th at 11 am.

This study is led by Pastor Ken and will center on the parables of Jesus. It will be every Thursday at 11 am on the Shadow Rock campus. The study will go through March 7th. This week the group will look at the Parable of the Laborers in the Vineyard. It is known to evoke the most resistance to our sense of fairness. It is also the Word About Life for Mardi Gras Sunday as it reflects the topsy-turvy ways of God.

If you want to join by way of Zoom, click here.

Last week's study can be viewed by clicking below. The best place to start is at the 14-minute mark. We still had some starts and stops but we got going a lot sooner than usual. Yeah, us! Click the link below and enter the passcode.

"Q and A" About the Work of Our Transition Team February 25th at 11:30 AM

The Transition Team will hold a Q&A session to update everyone on their work.

The scope of their work is to oversee the process of moving Shadow Rock UCC into an organizational model that is sustainable and adaptive, with the motivation that the preservation and promotion of our core values, vision, and mission are key to the survival and thriving of Shadow Rock.

The chair of the team is Marylin Rampley. Feel free to contact her.



I was happy to hang out at your tremendous art show event last November 2023. You had a great community event with art, food, good company, and music to celebrate your 50th Anniversary. I was there and I had no "egrets". I had a great time and many others can't stop "raven" about it.

This event required a lot of planning and work by a team of dedicated people. The question is, "Do you want to do it again?" If you want to be part of an "egg-cellent" art show collaboration, contact the church office. At this time, the church staff is gathering information and collecting names of interested persons.

We are exploring the idea of doing another art show next Fall of 2024. We want to have a team in place by March 31st. So if you want to be a part of the next great art event do not procrastinate. Do not be caught flat-footed in the rain. Sign up because whoever signs up will be the "winner-winner chicken dinner". They will have the benefit of the experience of the previous year.
