Hybrid Worship
19 September 2021
Good Morning - Welcome to Hybrid Worship!

We're continuing with a single service at 10:15 am, in the sanctuary, on Zoom, and streaming live to YouTube. While we love our mountain campus, we're also excited to be "breaking out" by using technology to share our core values of justice, inclusion, and spirituality.

Whether you are getting ready to come to the campus or you're preparing to participate online, you are loved!
We Covenant One With Another
Spiritual Formation
Spiritual Formation (adult Sunday School) is back! Join us by Zoom at 9:00 am or show up in the Shadow Rock Multipurpose Room! Our topic for September and October is "Wading Into Theology," informed by Elizabeth Johnson's Quest for the Living God. Last week, we talked briefly about modern theism as a departure point and the marvelous diversity of theology in the 21st century. This week, we get down to business with the question: "In what ways does belief make sense and in what ways does it not?" Everyone is welcome - come prepared to share your journey with others in ways that feel best for you.


Greeting and Announcements
No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!

Get ready to share celebrations and prayer requests. Zoom worshippers can unmute and share when invited to do so or use the chat function anytime. All congregants can text Pastor Ken at 480-263-3308. In-person worshippers can also write a card with their celebration or prayer concern.

For All Things Shadow Rock, check out our weekly e-newsletter, Rock the Week. If you're not getting Rock the Week, email the church staff to subscribe.
