Worship with us on Sunday
May 12, 2013
"Work to be done." That was the headline in The Daily Iowan after Bishop Gene Robinson spoke at our church's symposium supporting marriage equality on May 4. This morning we'll consider the work we are called to do as Christians in light of the charge Jesus gave to his followers: "You shall be my witnesses."
Scipture Lessons: Acts 11:19-26; Acts 1:1-11
Sermon: "Work to Be Done"
The Rev. William Lovin preaching
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 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 Christian education for all ages
10:15 Worship for everyone

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.
Bishop Gene Robinson was the keynote speaker at this event on May 4, 2013. See the media coverage here.
