Join us at 10:30 a.m. as we welcome guest speaker Rev. David Pyle. Rev. Pyle is a Congregational Life Staff Member of the Central East Region of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).
We continue our monthly theme of Community with Rev. Pyle’s message, “We Begin Again, in Love.” There is an idea in our culture that people need to earn forgiveness. That forgiveness is about someone else. The truth is, forgiveness is a gift that we give ourselves, no matter who we are forgiving. Music for the day will be performed by the Mill Creek Choir, directed by Kristen Tosh-Morelli, with Pam Allenstein, pianist.
DURING WORSHIP SERVICE
Children’s Religious Exploration (RE)
This Sunday during the Religious Exploration Hour, our Chalice Children will enjoy a lesson about acceptance as the Roots and Shoots Class will have their first rehearsal for their Christmas Play, “The Year Mrs. Claus Saved Christmas.” Coming of Age youth will learn to see cooperation as an important quality in justice- making and imagine better ways to cooperate with one another as the Youth Group plans their upcoming Saturday gathering at the church.
If you are interested in becoming a part of a vibrant and growing Religious Exploration Program, WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU! Contact our DRE at firstname.lastname@example.org or, call her directly at 302-367-6533. She will be happy to hear from you!
BEFORE WORSHIP SERVICE
Spirit in Practice
Justice Practices with Bob Broesler
Come discover what’s on the plate of this new workshop series.
Join us on Sunday morning in the MacArtor Library, 9 am-10:15 am.
No registration required — just drop in!
This workshop encourages us to realize that our religious/spiritual faith and our social engagement must not only co-exist, but must be fully integrated, because they are, in essence, one and the same thing. After all, what is social action but ministry to a hurting world? And as the minister and author Frederick Buechner notes, our ministries, our place of service, our action in the world will be found where our deep passion and the world’s deep hunger meet. Finding such a place is a spiritual task; responding to it is as well.
AFTER WORSHIP SERVICE
Everyone is welcome to remain with us after the worship service for our monthly potluck lunch. Join us for food and fellowship after church! Please bring a dish or beverage to share.
It’s going to be another great day at Mill Creek!
