Maundy Thursday, April 13th
6:30 – Dinner
7:00 – Worship
We will gather around tables outside the sanctuary for a simple meal catered by Athens Cafe and worship. We explore the meaning of the last supper and the power of breaking bread in our community. This is a very meaningful service that reminds us of both the sorrow and hope of the week of Jesus’ death. The service will close with an option for foot or hand washing as a way to offer love and service to one another.

Sermon Title “How Resurrection Works” – Rev. T. Michael Rock
Easter is all about potential and possibility. Are we open to change and grow? Are we open to resurrection possibility for our lives? Are we ready for miracles and hope? Are we ready for the light?
On Fire! In Love! was the theme of an ecumenical Pentecost worship Robbinsdale United Church of Christ hosted. In worship with us were two ecumenical partners, Nu Generation Gathering and Jesus is the Way Ministries International of the Twin Cities. The worship featured song, dance, prayer, celebration, and communion. It was made possible in part through the support of the Calvin Institute and generous funding from the Lilly Endowment.
Sometimes our faith can get stuck. Especially when we dwell on the “Thou Shalt Nots” and the “Don’ts.” Some people experience this in Lent, when they come up with something they are going to “Go Without” or “Give Up,” like chocolate or sweets.
This Lent we are asking what you want to say YES to? Where is God inviting you to grow?
Lent is a season of change, and change can be scary. But ask yourself, what am I being called to say YES to. What is that scary and wonderful thing I can dare to bring into my life?
