  1. Articles : Lenten & Holy Week Happenings & Services

    Wednesday, April 3, 6:30pm – “Lenten Imagery as Seen in Modern & Contemporary Art”
    Led by Ruth Caccavale – Music Room

    Hear a discussion of Lenten influences on art in our modern times. Ruth is a former professor of art with Rutgers University and currently serves as a gallery guide at the Nasher Museum. A gifted teacher, some of you may remember a few years ago the excellent class Ruth taught, along with Monica Rossman, on the music and art of Holy Week. We hope you will join us.

    Friday Morning Prayers, Throughout Lent

    The Congregational Care Committee invites you to pray with them on Fridays at 7:00am. Wherever you are at that hour, take a few minutes to pray for those you know and love, and for the needs of the world. Know that the Congregational Care Committee and others will also be praying at that same time, that we might be bound together as our hearts are lifted to God. Prayer Concerns & Celebrations are included in the worship bulletin.

     

    Holy Week Silent Campus

    To maintain our rhythm of worship and reflection, we do not schedule meetings on our campus during Holy Week. The only groups that will meet are support groups (NA, OA), Bible studies, and groups that support Holy Week worship services. We pray you will join us in this journey: Come by, take a walk, or sit and pray in the Memorial Garden.

    Sunday, April 14 – Palm Sunday
    8:30am & 11:00am Worship

    Children are invited to gather in the Courtyard 10 minutes before each service to line up for our Palm Parade with their Fish Banks for One Great Hour of Sharing.

     

    April 18 – Maundy Thursday
    7:30pm Worship

    Come remember the intimacy of the upper room and the Last Supper as we gather around the table in communion. Remember the words Jesus gave us as he departed, his agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, his betrayal by Judas, his final hours on the cross.

  5. Articles : 2018 Elective Term 5: The Losses of Our Lives

    The Losses of Our Lives: The Sacred Gifts of Renewal in Everyday Loss

    Sundays, February 18 – March 25
    9:45-10:45am in Room 204
    Facilitators: Bill & Nancy Roberts

    Author Dr. Nancy Copeland-Payton, a spiritual director and ordained clergy, reframes loss from the perspective that our everyday losses help us to learn what we need to handle the major losses. “The Losses of Our Lives” includes spiritual practices and questions for reflecting and exploring.

    “When we intentionally enter into our everyday walk through small losses, the terrain of larger losses, the valley of the shadow of death, is not totally unknown. It is not completely unfamiliar, alien, terrifying, for we have walked some of this way before with our lesser losses. We can journey through this valley of loss, for journey through it we must. And we can emerge markedly changed, but alive, on the other side.” – Prologue
