Sunday March 21

Join us March 21st, the fifth and final Sunday of Lent, as we continue on our Lenten journey with our worship series Again & Again: A Lenten Refrain. In Lent, we’re reminded that, again and again, suffering and brokenness find us. And yet, in the midst of the motion blur chaos of our lives, God offers a sacred refrain: “I choose you, I love you, I will lead you to repair.” Again and again, God breaks the cycle and offers us a new way forward. This Sunday we see that Again & again, We are Reformed. We welcome Rev. Debbie Ingram, Executive Director of Vermont Interfaith Action as our guest preacher, who will preach a sermon entitled “Written on our Heart.” Readings for this service will include a passage from the prophet Jeremiah and the Gospel of John. Music under the direction of Peter Amidon includes the anthems “Ubi Caritas” by Maurice Durufle and “Ukuthula,” Traditional from South Africa, Perrin Scott soloist. Our hymns for this Sunday will be “Spirit of the Living God” by Daniel Iverson, “I Will Arise,” words by Joseph Hart, traditional melody, arranged and additional verses by Peter Amidon, Julie Peterson soloist and “In the Midst of New Dimensions” by Julian Rush. The children’s story for our service is The Invisible String by Patrice Karst. Come journey with us! Come sing this holy refrain with us again and again. Everyone is welcome.
