This is the last weekend of August. School has started. The crowds on the Pearl Street Mall are shifting from summer tourists to new CU students who are, once again, convincing me that students are getting younger every year.
Plans are well underway for our Coming Home Sunday Worship and Picnic on Sunday, September 9th. This is always such a delightful celebration of our life-together. And I have my tickets for the Rockies last home game of the season – September 27th against the Cubs. I’m going to wear my Rockies shirt and my Cubs hat.
What’s my point? Fall is coming with all the freshness that our beloved Rocky Mountain west has to offer. And fall brings wonderful opportunities to worship together, to learn together, to nurture our relationships and build new ones, and to love one another through our shared mission work and our commitment to justice.
In this eBlast I want to tell you about one exciting opportunity that begins this fall:
Our Wednesday’s of Wonder (WOW) midweek program is moving to Tuesdays starting October 2nd. The program will now be called “Eat, Pray, and Stay”.
Here’s the new schedule:
5:45 pm: Simple supper with suggested donation of $5 for meal
6:30 pm: Worship including music, prayers, children’s time and a message
7:15 – 8 pm: Study/discussion group for adults with childcare and children’s time
Church Council will be the program on the first Tuesday of each month. Folks can come to all or part of every Tuesday.
Worship will be at the heart of the evening — beautiful music, heartfelt prayer, time for children and special meditations. Different people will offer the prayers and the mediation each week and many will be involved in worship leadership. The service will be informal and feature different kinds of music.
This Tuesday worship service will give us a second worship option each week. I see our “Eat, Pray, and Stay” program becoming as meaningful and beautiful as our Sunday mornings. Not only will it engage our members who cannot attend on Sundays, it will also open another doorway into our faith community – our worship life together, our music, our study, our friendships, our mission and our ministry. I like to keep opening more doors so that there are many ways to come into our church family as well as many ways for us to go out into the world.
You’ll be hearing lots more about all the opportunities that are coming this fall. For today, I wanted to let you know about our “Eat, Pray, and Stay” worship-centered program beginning Tuesday, October 2nd.
Please keep our beloved church in your prayers. I remember you in mine. I’ll see you Sunday.
