This Memorial Day Weekend, the sermon title is  Replacing A Fallen Comrade.  Our sermon text comes from the Book of Acts where we find the disciples and others going about the work of the church as they strive to replace Judas. What is the main characteristic they are looking for in his replacement? What is the most important characteristic in those who lead the church today?  We find some of those essential characteristics in the men and women who are serving (and who have served) in the military. This Sunday offers us the blessing of recognizing those who are serving, and those who have served, our great nation.

      This Sunday, we will explore the importance of names. Our identity is found in our name. As we celebrate all women this Mother's Day, we look at the importance of the name "Mom." More importantly, we ask the imperative question, "What does the name Jesus mean to you?”  We celebrate Holy Eucharist at both the contemporary service and the traditional service.   Five of our young people will be confirmed at the 11:00 am traditional service.

      Whereas most weeks, both of our services are built around the same theme and message, we're mixing things up this Sunday.  The contemporary service will look at the question: ‘Why do people go to church?’ We will also explore why people do not go to church. As we revisit the two disciples as they trudge their way to Emmaus, we will uncover the two main reasons people no longer find the church relevant and what we can do about it.  The traditional service will celebrate Heritage Sunday. We will have an opportunity to celebrate our diversity and our uniqueness, while simultaneously celebrating all that we have in common that makes us brothers and sisters in Christ.

      Memorials pop up along the highways that mark tragic events. The memorials are erected to remember lives lost. This Easter Sunday, we will look at Easter through the eyes of Jesus’ mother Mary. Erecting memorials were important to Mary’s people. They had a history of marking places in order to remember. Did Mary ever consider making a memorial to remember her son? There is but one memorial needed as we celebrate the living Christ. I invite you to come as we explore what that memorial is.  Photo by  Rachel

      Have you ever found yourself moaning and groaning, grumbling and complaining, maybe even wondering when life throws you a curve ball… ‘Is God with me or not?’ If you have, you are not alone. Come this Sunday as we explore what it is we expect from God and what God has to say about those expectations.  Photo by  Scott Ableman
