We welcome you to join us for worship on Sunday, June 4 at 10:00 a.m., our summer service time.
This Sunday we celebrate Pentecost with the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
Rev. David J. Hanna will deliver the sermon LIA: Grace Gushes In:
The Samaritan woman had done nothing to warrant Jesus’ care, to merit his forgiveness, to deserve his love; instead, these were freely given. Here’s the thing: Jesus took the initiative in offering them. He sought her out. He reached out to her. You see, God’s love is first, prior, before our love.
Musical contributions will be provided by the Chancel Choir.
Following the service, everyone is invited to gather in the Chalice Room next to the Sanctuary for refreshments and fellowship.
As we begin the summer months, focused Adult Sunday School lessons will be offered at times. The first in the series is a A Study of the Psalms, Sunday mornings in June at 9:00 a.m. in the Dining Room.
Psalms make up some of the most beautiful literature in our religious tradition. Their words are used in multiple aspects of worship and in the prayer life of the faithful. Psalms also offer some of the most challenging and candid conversations with God. We often look at Psalms with an eye on those writings that make us comfortable. What is it about the Psalms that makes us uncomfortable? Do they have something to say to us also? The words of some Psalms may be unsettling, disruptive, and even violent; but, those same words offer us a glimpse into the depth of a soul reaching out to God even in anguish and even in anger. Together, we will look deep into the Psalms that comfort, the Psalms that uplift, and the Psalms that challenge.
