A BIT ABOUT LITURGY
The calendar to the left sums up our navigational course through the year. As a liturgical community, we are intentional about celebrating each season of the Life of Jesus and the Church.
Currently we are sailing through "Ordinary Time" (the bottom green edge of the circle). In this season, we are focused on growth and transformation of our hearts through the power of the Holy Spirit. We do this through chosen Scriptures, preaching, music, and prayers especially designed for this purpose.
If we take this season seriously, we'll be hard-pressed to say it is anything but "ordinary!"
Saturday, August 1, a service of remembrance for the late Wanda Walker will be held. The family and close friends have already had her funeral, yet attendance was limited do to COVID. At this service we will sing, remember, share Scripture, and have communion - blessing the Lord for his life in her.
CHARLES "CHUCK" HOHEISEL
Saturday, July 25, we formally said good-bye to a deeply beloved loved saint and member of our community. You can view a bit of his life, and his influence on many others in this video in his honor. To read his obituary and give a donation, click HERE.
'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.'"
"Yes," says the Spirit, "they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them."
THE NEW ENGLAND BLESSING
Recently churches from multiple denominations across New England came together to sing as One Voice a blessing over the people in this region of the United States.
Our own Donna Kendrick has a couple of cameos. See if you can spot her. (Although it says she is from Andover MASS, we really know she's from our beautiful town!)
A THREE STREAMED CHURCH
We are are a "three streams" church, meaning we frame our Sunday mornings within three expressions of worship: charismatic (experiencing God through the Spirit), evangelical (calling others to repentance and conversion to Jesus Christ), and traditional (using ancient liturgy as a framework of our worship). Most of us know about being charismatic and evangelical. Here's a video about liturgical worship to help us sort it all out.
Almighty and immortal God, giver of life and health: We implore your mercy for your servants below, that by your blessing upon them and upon those who minister to them with your healing gifts, they may be restored to health of body and mind, according to your gracious will, and may give thanks to you in your holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
