Worship with us on Sunday

July 20, 2014
at 9:15 a.m.


As we walk through the Gospel of Matthew during the summer, this morning we come to a parable of Jesus. We hear these short stories in new ways each time. And each time they open up new ways of looking at the world. The parable of the weeds and wheat might also be called the parable of the patient farmer. Join us as we hear the good news of God's compassion and mercy.

Scripture Lessons: Isaiah 44:6-8; Matthew 13:24-30
Sermon: "Be Where You Are"
The Rev. William Lovin preaching

Trumpet Solo--Brian Umlah

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. Older children may stay in worship through the children's message and then go to Children's Church.

Join us after worship for good (Fair Trade) coffee and great conversation in Rockwood Hall.

9:15 Worship for everyone
Free parking at the Iowa Memorial Union Ramp
(Park east end of the 4th level for a one block walk. )



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.
