About

Thursday Night Live is a special monthly worship service held at Lincoln Park on the third Thursday of every month. During this casual worship time, we will sing some songs, say some prayers, hear some devotions, and join in fellowship with one another. This is a great opportunity for anyone who cannot attend worship on Sunday mornings, or for anyone who would like to supplement their weekly worship with a new experience in a different setting.

Mid-Week Lenten Bible Study Series

Adam Hamilton - The Way

During the season of Lent, we will meet on Wednesday Nights, Feb. 17-March 23, from 7-8:30 PM, in Memorial Hall, to watch and discuss Adam Hamilton’s Bible Study series “The Way: Walking in the Footsteps of Jesus.” Over six weeks we will travel by video with Adam Hamilton to the Holy Lands and retrace Jesus’ baptism and temptation, healing ministry, preaching of the kingdom of God, miracles, ministry to sinners, outcasts and the poor, and his final week in Jerusalem. Through video segments of the Holy Lands, Bible passages, and discussion, we will explore what it means for us today “to walk in the footsteps of Jesus.” I hope you’ll make this mid-week study part of your Lenten journey.

Worship With Us – January and February 2016

9 am Worshipfrom Pastor Dave

Beyond our comprehension, we often call upon our imagination to arrive at images that somehow convey how we understand and experience God’s presence in our lives. We say that God, for us, is like a “Shepherd”, or a “King” or our “Refuge and Strength”. The Bible contains hundreds if not thousands of images for God, but we’ve mostly become fixated upon only a few.

In my sermon series, based on a book written by Episcopal Priest and author Lauren Werner, we will consider ways in which we meet God, which are in the Bible, but are often overlooked. This is no small matter. As we increase the number of ways that we can imagine God, if we consider and select our images wisely, we may find ourselves meeting God much more often, and in turn, have our lives transformed in ways we’ve never imagined?

Worshipping as a community makes us accountable to one another, supporting one another and growing together as we clothe ourselves in Christ and compassion. We are stronger when we are together.
