Copy of News for April 17, 2024

This Sunday, April 21: In-person service at 10am

Rev. Jorge will be preaching this Sunday on John 10:11-18. Where he will share how Jesus goes out of his way, from the beginning of his life to the end, to show people he's not here to collect and just leave. How Jesus is not detached from the people.

This Sunday the Church Council will meet after worship.

Join us on Friday evening for our monthly service of chant, prayer and quiet. Doug Machiz and his cello will be there, and we’ll hear poetry by Denise Levertov, reflecting on the Velazquez painting “Servant Girl at Emmaus”. If you’re joining us remotely, the usual Zoom room  will be open and the bulletin will be online.

The Giving Sunday offering for April is for the UCC's One Great Hour of Sharing. This is the global outreach fund that enables the UCC to help people around the world. Click on the link and watch the short video for an inspiring example.

Wed Discussion Group moves to Thursday

The Wednesday Discussion Group (we might need a new name) have moved to the second and fourth Thursdays, starting on April 11, 7pm on Zoom. We are discussing Marcus Borg's great introduction to the study of the historical Jesus, "Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time." This will be especially useful for our newer members, although everyone is invited. Even if you read the book the first time we did it, twenty years ago, you might enjoy seeing how your perspective has changed and what you have learned since then. Read Ch. 2 for the next meeting.

Upcoming services and events

Taize this Friday at 7:30 pm

• Weds discussion group: Thurs, Apr 25 (7 pm) on Zoom. Continuing with Marcus Borg’s “Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time”, read Ch 2 for the next meeting.

Links and resources

Here’s a song from Stefan Waligur at Community of Peace (our March Giving Sunday recipient): “I Arise Today” 

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and the UCC Mental Health Network has sent worship resources as well as two videos to use during this time. May 19 is Mental Health Sunday this year, but any Sunday is a great day to focus on mental health!
