The New Church of Montgomery will not meet for Worship this Sunday, but our hosts and friends, the Glendale New Church, will.
We will gather this Sunday in the Sanctuary, observing all the best practices for safety.
Worship will begin at 11 AM.
Our topic is taken from Mark 13, which is a long speech about the future. Why does Jesus spend the whole chapter inflaming our fears? Why does he invent all these terrible scenarios? “You will hear of wars and threats of wars.” “You will be handed over to the local councils and beaten.” “Everyone will hate you.” “There will be greater anguish in those days than at any time since God created the world.” “Watch out! I have warned you about this ahead of time!”
We will explore how we react to these prophecies with the expectation that we will be enlightened, strengthened and encouraged. Because that is what Jesus is ultimately doing with his entire life on earth.
The New Church of Montgomery is glad to be one of the many organizations and individuals donating to Bethany House Services, a shelter for families in Cincinnati.
Construction is underway for a their brand new shelter opening in 2022. They hope to provide increased programming, equitable access and improved outcomes for families that need these priceless things.
If you missed our Easter Service, you can catch the highlights on YouTube. Thank you to everyone who participated in the service and helped it come to be. We are looking forward to a day when we can all be together in person, but we are thankful for, and enjoying our spiritual community which was forged through our time of separation.
Please join us in person or over zoom for our Easter 2022 service, April 17, 2022. Our Guest Minister is Reverend Dr. Jim Lawrence from the Pacific School of Religion. We begin Fellowship at 10:30 am, and Worship at 11:00 am. Zoom links have been provided to church members and their contacts via email.
We hope you will join us this morning at 10:30 AM for fellowship and 11 AM over zoom,for worship service with Reverend Dr. Sherrie Connelly giving our service. The subject she has chosen is extravagant love.
Our Lord God is everything to us, offering an extravagant love, generous, all giving, comforting and protecting.
This extravagant love extends into a deep forgiveness, even in the knowledge of human beings’ great imperfections, as we become repentant. Still, Our Lord God is loving us fully, just the same.
