Our weekly worship service is Sunday morning at 9:30. We have Reflection Time/Sunday School that runs concurrent with the service; children attend the first half of the service, then they may leave for classes. We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. Come one, come all!
June 2: All music Sunday is when the choir plans the service to focus on music as a way to hear and feel the divine. There will be several choir pieces, amazing soloists and more! It’s a festive service, a good opportunity to bring friends or family to try out EHCC! A quote from the latest movie version of A Star Is Born sums it up. “Music is essentially 12 notes between any octave. 12 notes and the octave repeats. It’s essentially the same story told over and over. All the artist can offer the world is how they see them (sic) notes. ” To paraphrase the movie: I hope you will love how our choir, Carol Estes, our soloists, and I see the 12 notes in this all-music service! —Alice Tawresey
Where in the World Is God?
Our worship theme June 16-September 1 is “Where in the World is God?” We want to encourage recollection and reflection on places where your heart and soul have opened up for one reason or another–places where your spirit has soared, your faith has been fortified. Or places where your heart has been broken in a way that allowed compassion to grow (in the spirit of Mother Teresa who once said, “May God break my heart so completely that the whole world falls in”).
We have been so blessed in recent summers to hear one another’s stories and testimonies. Your worship team is hoping that the theme we have chosen will elicit another great round of storytelling and faith testimonies from our beloved community. As you know, our congregation is made up of gracious, forgiving people who do not (thank God!) demand perfection from those who are participating in worship leadership. Therefore, nobody needs to fret overmuch about whether you are “good enough” at public speaking to share your faith story with the congregation in the sermon time. We welcome the sharing of pictures of places you have been, as long as Jennifer-in-the-office has them by Wednesday before your Sunday date for inclusion in the projection for worship.
We’ll have a sign-up sheet out soon. So: Where in the world is God? Let us hear your story! Bonus: speakers have an opportunity to choose at least one of the hymns we will sing together. Looking forward to being in worship with you this summer as we grow together in faith and love!
P.S. Planning to travel this summer? Take “Flat Jesus” (provided by EHCC) with you, and send us a phot of you and your card-stock Jesus.
