Worship with us on
Sunday, February 7, 2016
at 10:15 a.m.

 

This Sunday we hear Luke’s account of the “Transfiguration”—Jesus on a mountain with three disciples, shines with the glory of God. Paul tells the Christians in Corinth that we, too, have something of God’s glory, but we have it in “clay jars”—in our frail human flesh. We bring God’s light into the world, but we do so in fragile ways.

During worship we will celebrate the sacrament of communion. In the Congregational UCC tradition, everyone is welcome at the Lords' Table regardless of church membership or denominational affiliation.

 

Scripture Lessons: II Corinthians 4:1-11; Luke 9:28-36

Sermon:        “The Week of Two Pockets”

The Rev. William Lovin preaching

Anthem         “Anthem for Transfiguration”                Paul Hefreiter


After worship, 5th-8th graders in the church will participate in our annual “Souper Bowl of Caring” offering. Please join in by putting a donation in the soup pots after worship. 100% of the money received will go directly to Food Pantry at the Crisis Center. Thanks for your generous giving. For more information about the “Souper Bowl” check out this video.


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.

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.
