Sunday, June 16 – Trinity Sunday. The Sunday following Pentecost has traditionally been a celebration of the doctrine of the Trinity. In our United Church of Christ tradition, this idea of God being “Father-Son-Holy Ghost” has caused much debate and even division through the years, particularly among our Puritan and Congregationalist forebearers. How might this idea of God as three-in-one shape our sense of God’s relational presence among us? Scriptures texts include Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31; Psalm 8; Romans 5:1-5; John 16:12-15. Choir meets at 9:30 am to practice; all are welcome to sing in our “Pick-Up Choir!”
Father’s Day Salad Potluck follows worship! Bring a salad, fruit or dessert to share. Helpers needed for set up. Come by 9:00 if you can help set up.
