Worship with us on
Sunday, September 6, 2015
at 10:15 a.m.


Labor Day weekend invites us to consider the work of others as well as our own work. In the face of growing income inequality across our nation, Johnson County is considering raising the minimum wage. This morning we’ll look at the struggle for a living wage in light of scripture.

 

We will also celebrate the sacrament of Communion. In the Congregational UCC tradition, all people are welcome at the Lord’s Table, regardless of church membership or denominational affiliation. No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

 

Scripture Lessons: Deuteronomy 24:14-15; I Corinthians 9:9-14

Sermon: “Jesus Wants an Ethical Minimum Wage”

The Rev. William Lovin, preaching

 

Free parking at the Iowa Memorial Union Ramp (Park east end of the 4th level for a one block walk.)
No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

Nursery care is provided during worship for the youngest children. Children through grade 4 may stay in worship through the children's message and then go to Children's Church. Older children and youth are encouraged to remain in worship. Join us after worship for good (Fair Trade) coffee and great conversation in Rockwood Hall.


9:15 Worship for everyone

Our Mission

OPEN AND AFFIRMING 

Whoever you are, where ever you are on life's journey you are welcome here. 

The Congregational United Church of Christ is an “Open and Affirming” congregation. 

We know, with Paul, that as Christians, we are many members, but are one body in Christ, members of one another, and that we all have different gifts. With Jesus, we affirm that we are called to love our neighbors as ourselves, that we are called to act as agents of reconciliation and wholeness within the world and within the Church itself. We recognize the presence of ignorance, fear and hatred in the Church and in our culture, and covenant to not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, nor any other irrelevant factor, and we seek to include and support those who, because of this fear and prejudice, find themselves in exile from a spiritual community. 

We welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people to worship with us, join our congregation, and take an active role in our leadership, ministry, and mission.
