CHECK OUT HOW WPUCC LIVES ITS FAITH:
2019 DENVER MARADE
What is Coming Up at WPUCC?
LENT is a traditional Christian season of forty days (minus Sundays) which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means "spring." Lenten practices of self-examination, reflection and personal sacrifice may take modern or historic forms, rooted in spiritual development and concerns for global justice.
Sunday, March 24th Worship Celebration 10am
Jesus' ministries were full of compassionate action that grew out of listening -- to the pain and real needs of people he encountered, and to his sense of what God wanted from him. How can we imitate this deep listening today? Eric McEuen shares his inner learning through efforts to hear others better. By truly entering their stories, he is changed. How may the "still, small voice" of a still-speaking God nudge us towards greater harmony and justice as we come to hear each other more fully?
Sunday, March 24th LUNCH & LEARN!
Join our ministry teams -- Church Culture and Community (C3) and Beloved Community -- Sun., March 24, 11:30-1:30, for the first Lunch & Learn of 2019 (five more are planned). Our own Peter Sawtell will lead us into familiar and new territory -- in Greening Wash Park for the 2020s.
The coming decade needs to be a time of rapid and dramatic environmental change. How can our church take on the challenge of being a deeply "green church" in the coming years? Rev. Peter Sawtell will share a new emphasis from Eco-Justice Ministries that calls congregations to transformational work in worship, education, building issues, activism, and more. Join us for lively conversation that can help shape the future of Wash Park UCC (including our ministerial search process!), give insights for your family's efforts to protect Earth, and help Peter to refine this new project for Eco-Justice Ministries.
Peter is a member of our church, an ordained minister of the United Church of Christ, the founder and Executive Director of Eco-Justice Ministries, and a member of the national UCC's Council on Climate Justice. Info: eco-justice.org.
Lunch will be provided. If you plan on attending (and we hope you do!) please contact Diane Peterson at firstname.lastname@example.org to assist with planning for lunch. See you there!
