Lent and Holy Week at RUC
A Lenten Pause
A TIME OF MEDITATION AND COMMUNION
Join us for an hour of music, silent meditation, simple communion and conversation regarding a brief message the following the United Church Of Christ Lenten Devotion Book. Wednesdays of Lent from 12:00 – 1:00 (March 4, 11, 18, 25, April 1) . Bring a brown bag lunch and stay for fellowship following. “Climate crises caused by global warming. Strident polarization in communities. Gaping income disparities between the richest of us and the rest of us. The rampage of racism and militarism. The existential and everyday threats we face are daunting. With faithful people across the ages, we cry out to God for deliverance ... not only pleading for God to act, but seeking the courage to let God act through us.” Let Pastor Scott know you want a copy of the devotional and if you are willing to lead one of the Wednesday conversations.
Small Groups at RUC!
RUC is embarking on a new initiative within Church Life to support and create a small groups ministry. We already have wonderful small groups, Men’s Breakfast, Hope and Humor, Grace Notes to name just a few. We want to build on this strong foundation and add some new opportunities so STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS.
You’re invited to a new Lenten practice (February 26 to March 11). Don’t give up chocolate, or binge watching your favorite shows... JOIN A SMALL GROUP! Deepen your connections, explore something new, broaden your horizons.
Think about new small groups:
Wednesdays at noon
Sundays after worship sermon talkbacks
Wednesday evenings (childcare provided)
Need a prayer or some help ?
Let us know how we can help--with a prayer, some help or someone to listen.
