Contemplative Communion

We gather Thursdays at 12:15 for a brief contemplative communion service. We will engage in the ancient practice of Lectio Divina (a method of reading, studying, and praying Scripture), share prayers, and be fed at Jesus’ Welcome Table… all in about 30 minutes. Take a break midweek, come, and be.
Willing to host a coffee hour?  Sign up here. There are many dates available. It's a great opportunity to get to know someone while working together.

This Sunday, June 16:

We celebrate the Mystery of a God who is relationship on the Feast of the Holy Trinity. The choir shares, "Now We Thank You, Lord"
 as our musical offering and Howard Drescher gives the reflection. Following Worship, we meet in Fellowship Hall for Fellowship Hour.

This Trinity Sunday, we celebrate the faith and hope that the Creator’s love pours into our lives by Christ and the Holy Spirit. We are invited to join with Wisdom in a dance of delight and celebration of God’s activity and to hear Wisdom’s prophetic call to revere all that God has created. Where is the dynamic action of God noticeable in our lives? What is Wisdom calling us to care for this week? Seasons of the Spirit

A Prayer…
Creating God, we celebrate your creation. Transforming Christ, we come to be renewed in you. Dancing Spirit, we come to live by your rhythm. May we find time enough to gaze at the heavens, and silence enough to wonder at the handiwork of love, and grace enough to find ourselves bound together by your hands. Creator, Transformer, Dancer, we come to praise you and live with you in community. 
FIFTH SUNDAY WORKSHIP

Our next Fifth Sunday Workship will be Sunday, June 30. Worship will not be held in the Sanctuary but, instead, we will gather in Fellowship Hall for a time of prayer and Communion followed by cardmaking and work projects around the building. At 11:30, we will welcome the summer with a cook out with potluck salads and desserts.
