Live Nativity in Worship

This past Sunday, our kids dressed up and acted out the birth story of Jesus. Thanks to Kay Smith for sharing these "before" shots.

Candlelight Worship, 12/19/10

You may have seen the Traveler's Insurance commercial where a lion and a zebra drink from the same stream and hyenas play with monkeys. Sworn enemies get along like old friends. Is that the scene set in Isaiah 11? Does the Christ child come to make everything cute and cuddly? Is the baby boy sweet and innocent? Or is he dangerous?


Morning Worship, 12/19/10

NASA announced the discovery of new life a few weeks ago in California. What was surprising about the new life they found was the conditions in which it existed--at the bottom of an arsenic-filled lake. This was less of a surprise to Christian theologians, who have proclaimed for years that life takes hold in unexpected ways, for we know the life of Jesus emerged from unexpected circumstances. Born to a teenage mother in a manger, his arrival was...scandalous.

Morning Worship, 12/12/10

Good musicals transform moments into extraordinary moments; they express what our lips fail to convey about what we feel inside. In a moment, Mary feels immense joy inside when talking with her cousin Elizabeth, and she can't help but sing out to God, as if she were a character in a musical. And her hasn't made it onto a Hallmark card or a Broadway play, perhaps because it sings about her son coming to turn the world upside down. Are you ready for that?

Morning Worship, 12/5/10

Due to snow, lots of folks weren't able to come out this morning. But thanks to the power of technology, you can still join with us in worship today!


Dec 5--no SS, worship on schedule

Hello, friends!

There will be no Sunday School this morning, Dec 5, to give the road crews and the RPC sidewalk crew time to get both in better shape. We will have worship on schedule at 11am this morning.

Be safe!
