“breathing room” – A Night to Worship – April 10

breathing room - A Night to WorshipApril 10 – 7:00pm, at Lincoln Park

Linger in song and allow God to speak to your heart.
Celebrate God’s faithfulness.
Fellowship with like-hearted friends.

This is not a just a “Night of Worship” but rather it’s a “Night TO Worship.” It may sound like a typical “come and watch and be wowed” event, but this is much more like a potluck meal…it’s ok if you come and eat, but it will be much richer if you bring yourself to share.

A couple of worship leaders will take the lead, but it’s not scripted and programmed (not that there’s anything wrong with that!). It’s just that our heart for this night is different. We want to share ourselves with you and you to share yourselves with us…all while we revel in the revelation of Christ among us and adore the One who is worthy.

Why It’s Called “breathing room”:

“You’ve always given me breathing room, a place to get away from it all, A lifetime pass to your safe-house, an open invitation as your guest. You’ve always taken me seriously, God, made me welcome among those who know and love you.” (Psalm 61:3-5)

“breathing room” speaks of music having space in it – good music has breathing room. The presence of God is a place where you can catch your breath in the midst of a frenzied life. And having breathing room just feels good – like a shirt that fits well or a work week that’s free of deadlines – it’s something you really want to have.

Let’s get together and worship!

Sunday Morning Schedule Changes

From Pastor David McMillan

We’ve made a few changes to our Sunday morning schedule for 2012–2013. There are several reasons for these changes:

  1. A designated Sunday School hour provides an opportunity for all members of our congregation, children through adults, to interact and nurture relationships.
  2. Children, 2nd grade and up, will remain in the sanctuary where they can learn to worship God through liturgy and the example of their parents and elders.
  3. The logistical problems sometimes encountered when transitioning from our first service to our second service will be alleviated.

The overall objective of these changes is to strengthen a spirit of Christian community.

 

9:00-9:55 am Contemporary Worship

Please note that there will be no Sunday school on Sunday, September 9. As part of our “Kick-Off Celebration,” we will share breakfast together in Memorial Hall during the Sunday School hour.
