NewsThe risen Christ gazes at us from the wall mural of a church in New Orleans.

We hope you will join us for worship as we encounter the resurrected Christ during the season of Easter.

During the season of Easter we reflect on the stories of Jesus’ followers as they begin to wrap their heads and hearts around Jesus’s resurrection from death. What does it mean for us to claim that “death has been overcome,” especially in this time of coronavirus?  The seven weeks of “Eastertide” culminate in Pentecost, the story of the birth of the Church when Jesus’ followers, empowered by Spirit, emerge into their mission of living as a community of love-in-action in the world.

Joining us for worship on Zoom

Currently we worship on Zoom on Sunday mornings. At 9-9:30 AM an intimate service of meditation in the style of the Taizé community in France is offered. From 10:30-11:30 AM we gather, all ages together, for singing, prayer, scripture and learning. After both worship services we linger for conversation in small groups. This is a good time to get to know people and ask questions.

Season of Easter Worship Schedule

You can follow the scripture readings for each Sunday of the season of Easter, and discuss them at Lenten Lectionary Lunch on Wednesdays at 1pm.

All Easter season worship opportunities are on Zoom.  To receive the Zoom information, contact Pastor Lacey at lacey.cucc@gmail.com. Provide your name, phone number and email address and we will get back in touch with you.
