As a congregation, many of us enter this beautiful month of May with heavy hearts.
on the same day, Sunday, April 28, was deeply painful. Their deaths, along with the recent passing of Jeff Ream, and the deaths of relatives of others in the congregation, is affecting each of us not only as individuals, but also with corporate grief within our community of faith. I will be focusing on the issue of lament in my sermon on May 5. Let us hold each other close in our hearts and in our relationships.
Later in the month, I invite the entire congregation and friends to my home on
Sunday, May 26
, for the
8th Annual Memorial Day Weekend Worship & Picnic
. For all the pertinent details, please read the article in this Newsletter. We’re doing something special this year. The
youth of the church
will be planning and leading the service! They are asking that everyone wear a “camp” shirt, or some similar shirt with a logo of a favorite place or organization.
We will try hard to accommodate those with mobility issues.
There will be NO worship or church school at the church that morning.
If you have any concerns about this, please speak with me. If you would like to carpool out to my home, cars will be leaving the church parking lot by 10:30 am. This will be a wonderful opportunity simply to relax with one another, worship outdoors, share fellowship, eat picnic food, and get to know each other better. We will have a rain plan.
We are truly blessed in so many ways here at College Hill, especially in the authentic, caring relationships being formed or renewed. With many new members, however, it’s getting a bit harder to get to know everyone. So, let us all continue to strive to build meaningful relationships with one another.

The Evolution of God
by Robert Wright
"Through the prisms of archaeology, theology, and evolutionary psychology, Wright's findings overturn basic assumptions about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and are sure to cause controversy. He explains why spirituality has a role today, and why science, contrary to conventional wisdom, affirms the validity of the religious quest."
We select one or two books a year to read and discuss in depth over several monthly Tuesday evening sessions. (typically on the fourth Tuesday)
