Education News

Childrens’ Church (Sundays during worship)  

CC is for kids up to 5th grade and is held in the Sunday School room upstairs. Lessons are based on the lectionary so families can talk about what they learned together each Sunday.

 

Adult Forum (Sundays at 9:15am)

We begin a series on the Apocrypha. These are books, written by followers of Jesus and their friends, that just missed getting into the Bible proper. And yet the church has kept them close for the insights they can provide on God’s work in the world and through God’s people. Come get a look at the “bigger picture.”

Exploring Faith (Tuesdays at Noon)

Come get a look at the “bigger picture.” (This is not a cut and paste error…we’ll revisit Sunday’s lesson with a little more time to dig into it.)

Men’s Group (Second Saturday, at Frankie Doodles 8 a.m.)

Looking ahead to May 1

Sixth Sunday of Easter

Introduction

Visions abound in the readings for the sixth Sunday of Easter. Paul has a vision about what to do. John has a vision of what will be. The risen Lord Jesus provides visions of peace that passes human understanding and power beyond human imagination.

Readings and Psalm

Our Home-making God

Into the midst of our anxiety and alarm we are offered a vision of a glorious future filled with promise—the promise that God will make a home with us. This is a promise of an ultimate future home—a New Jerusalem!—but also a promise of God’s daily home-making presence in the hearts of all who believe. Paul has a vision of a cry for help from Macedonia, and his beloved church at Philippi is founded in the home and household of Lydia. In Revelation, John, turning from the lake of fire, is carried up in a vision and sees the New Jerusalem coming down, centered on the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. But no longer is there separation from God, weeping, or mourning, but now a restored creation where God and God’s people are at home together. Jesus promises that though he is going away, he will come to his disciples in the power of an advocate, the Holy Spirit, and that both he and the Father will make their home in all who believe. The gathering of the faithful assembly to receive Christ’s word and sacrament is a foretaste of that New Jerusalem, where God will finally and ultimately be at home with us, even as the Holy Trinity makes a home now in the hearts of all who believe. Into the anxieties and uncertainties of our everyday life we are offered both a vision of a glorious future when God will be at home with us and we will be at home with God, and a living foretaste of that same future: “We will come to them and make our home with them. . . . Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you” (John 14:23b, 27a).


 

 NURSERY OPEN

The nursery is open and staffed with  our nursery attendants…Sicily, Selena, and Emily…are doing a great job.  The nursery is open from 9-11 each Sunday during the worship service!  Whether you have kids for the nursery or not, why not stop in and chat with our nursery staffers on Sunday! 

 

Meet Pastor Dave

Our Pastor, David Kappus, has been an inspiration to our community and our congregation (just ask him, he'll tell ya!).  Pastor Dave's sermons often include insightful stories that have real-life meaning, scriptural relevance, and even the occasional reference to Star Trek.
