Children & Youth

Children and youth are encouraged to worship with their families today. Activity books are available.

Sermon:

God is my Superpower!
Jonah is a famous prophet. But oddly he is best remembered for how many times (and how creatively) he said “NO, NOT ME”! God is so amazing though that in Jonah’s refusals and anger there still was enacted a transformation of a whole city’s population! They turned away from selfishness and idolatry and toward caring for one another and seeking God. How is God working superbly in your life even when you do not know it?

Scripture:

  • Communion Sunday
  • Ezekiel 37:1-14 and Psalm 23

Children & Youth

Children and youth are encouraged to worship with their families today. Activity books are available.

Sermon:

Imagination is a Superpower!
Anne Shirley, the main character from Anne of Green Gables, is both loved and bullied for her immense imagination. Seeing beyond what is to see what could be is also a gift given to the prophets. Ezekiel was amazing at turning an image into a story and that story into inspiration! Jesus’ last meal with his disciples began with him telling stories and now is itself our Story! Come and let us explore the wonder and power of stories that nourish our faith.

Music:

  • T-J Mortensen, organ
  • Joni Soans, violin

After Worship:

All are invited to gather in the Memorial Hall for fellowship and refreshments.
