Have you ever walked along the shores of Lake Michigan or another body of water and picked up stones as the waves lap across them? Perhaps you’ve been lucky enough to find a piece of glass that has been tumbled through the waters. When you pick these objects up, do you ever wonder what their story might be? Fossilized stones are particularly intriguing and what was that piece of glass before it became just a piece? There are stories that have shaped our lives, leaving us without the ability to see who we truly are in the eyes of God and leaving us without the ability to speak the depth of our stories of struggle. We focus on the importance of recovery of mental health, reclaiming our sense of who we are and being able to proclaim new redemptive stories of divine worth. We welcome Rev. Cara Weiler to our time of worship, who serves as a Deacon partnered with our church and with Communities In Schools of Kalamazoo. She will share with us the work of Communities In Schools and the influence they have on the mental health of many. It is a communion Sunday, please bring juice and bread to your worship space if you are able. Let us experience, celebrate and share God’s love.
On Sunday, March 7, we will offer communion in the parking lot from 12:30-1:30pm. We will use both driveways as entrance ways. Pastor Julie and Pastor Matt will be at one of the driveways to offer you communion. Please stay in your cars, with masks on and they will serve you in your vehicle. Please join us in the breaking of the bread and the sharing of the cup, remembering that we are the bread and the love freely poured out in the world in the name of the Christ who redeems.
Led by: Rev. Matt Weiler
