Bluegrass Worship, 4/26/09

Sidney Trent and friends led us musically in worship this week with traditional bluegrass music. We sang old favorites like "I'll Fly Away" and "Will the Circle Be Unbroken". The sermon, based on work by the Rev. Dr. Brad Braxton, concerns what happened between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, and is titled: To Hell & Back.

The Power of Priming

Jesus primed the disciples for peace by saying, "Peace be with you," over and over in the midst of a quiet chaos. Can you hear him saying the same today? Can you hear him whispering "peace" as violence rages? Can you hear him calling us to the new life of resurrection?

Earth Day

Kim Thomas and Alyson Dotson organized an Earth Day event at RPC this year to raise awareness about the importance of God's creation and our stewardship responsibilities as God's children. Check out our cardboard robots, polite children, excited recyclers, and eager relayers.

Easter Worship, 4/12/09

Christ the Lord is risen today! As people of the resurrection, called by God to new life beyond sin and death, we worship God with hymns of praise, the receiving of a new member, partaking in communion, and reading the Easter story according to John's Gospel.

With Mary, proclaim the Good News, "The Stone Is Gone!"

Morning Worship, 4/5/09

As Jesus arrived in Jerusalem from the east, humble and riding on a donkey, Pilate arrived from the West, military might proudly on display. The two entrances couldn't have been more different, for they conveyed opposite messages.
