SCRIPTURE: Genesis 18:1-15
The three core values of the United Church of Christ are CONTINUING TESTAMENT, EXTRAVAGANT WELCOME, and CHANGING LIVES. Abraham offered an extravagant welcome to his guests when they arrived at his house. We will think about how we offer an extravagant welcome to all.
With our merger coming close, we are preparing to offer an extravagant welcome to the Lorain worshipping community, and one way we are doing this is by incorporating one of their hymnals and their pew bibles into our sanctuary. The black New Century Hymnal will remain. In preparation for this expression of extravagant welcome, we will retire the Pilgrim Hymnals and our current pew bibles from service in our sanctuary and await the arrival of the Chalice Hymnals and pew bibles on July 2.
Know that you will be welcomed among us no matter where you are on life’s journey. We aim to provide welcoming hearts and helping hands to all who are in need. We are friendly, loving, and community-minded. We share each other’s joys and struggles, supporting and loving members of our own church family, our community, our nation and the world around us.
Worship with us every Sunday at 10:00am. Our vibrant Sunday School program, also at 10:00am, offers learning opportunities for pre-school aged children and up. Nursery care is offered for younger children.
See you on Sunday!
