Join us Sunday March 7, Communion Sunday, 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. Readings for this service will include a passage from Paul’s letter to the new Christian community in Corinth and the Gospel of John. The sermon by Pastor Lucozzi is entitled “Turning the Tables.” Music under the direction of Patty Meyer includes the anthem “Day by Day” from the musical Godspell written by Stephen Schwartz; and featuring Derrick Harnish, solo; Rob Harnish, bass; and Stefan Amidon, drums. Our hymns for this Sunday will be “Softly and Tenderly Jesus is Calling” by Will L. Thompson, sung by Fred Breunig, Peter Amidon, Andy Davis, and Tom Green, “When Christ Went to the Temple” Traditional Welsh Melody; Words by Carolyn Winfrey Gilette and “God’s Eye is on the Sparrow” by Civilla D. Martin; sung by Ellen Crockett, Perrin Scott, Cathy Hess. Our special communion hymn is “Give Us Bread for the Journey” by Bret Hesla; featuring Keith Murphy solo and guitar; Becky Tracy, violin. The children’s story for our service is Luba and the Wren by Patricia Polacco. Come break bread and journey with us! Come sing this holy refrain with us again and again. Everyone is welcome.
