Weekly Invite To Worship
The Lord is risen. He is risen, indeed. Alleluia! Alleluia! More than 40 people shouted those words of faith and acclamation during Easter Sunday worship in Lischer Hall joining their hopeful voices to those around the world celebrating the Resurrection of the Lord. Beautiful spring flowers filled the space with color and fragrance. Bread was broken, the cup poured among us. Breakfast treats of all sorts brought us to share in conversation after worship. There was "a sweet, sweet spirit in this place."
For the next weeks of Easter through Pentecost, we will continue to worship in Lischer Hall and to celebrate weekly the Lord's Supper. This decision comes from conversation and exploration with members who are meeting with me to shape and create worship in ways that honor this church's history and experience as well as reflect a new season in the life of the congregation. If you are interested in being part of this gathering, please call the church office or speak with Sue Piersa.
For this second Sunday in Easter, the gospel reading is the familiar story of Thomas. We'll consider the role of "Holy Doubting!" in the journey of faith. Join us.
