Pastor David Kreuger-Duncan continues to lead our journey through the Gospel of Luke. This week, the topic is “Sabbath Rest…Sabbath Resolve!” based on chapter six. A coffee hour will follow in the fellowship hall, please join us and get acquainted.

Our sound system has been upgraded. Kate Francis, music director, now leads our hymns on the microphone. The congregational response has raised the quality of our worship in song.

For your contemplation: Most any part of life can become sacred — virtues, oneself, relationships, roles, people, music and literature, time and space. Life as a whole can be sanctified, as we hear in the words of Frederick Buechner describing his life on Rupert Mountain: “Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. In the boredom and in the pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch and taste your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life is grace.”

United Methodist Church

Please join us this week at the United Methodist Church as we celebrate Laity Sunday. Lay speaker Laurie Zapf will be preaching from the book of Ephesians and other lay members of the congregation will assist with the service. Jan Shannon will be commissioned as a pastoral intern working with the Episcopal Lutheran Methodist (ELM) ministry.
