This Sunday is the first Sunday in Lent and our worship shifts to the evening. From 5:15 to 5:30, Carol D. will be leading some sung prayers in the sanctuary and our liturgy (Unfailing Light) will begin at 5:30. Adult Forum will happen after worship and refreshments. If you'd like to add some candles to the worship space, please bring them by anytime.
UniLu has a very, very rare opportunity coming up in the next few months. Unlike most congregations that are 50 years old and built in residential neighborhoods, UniLu has a housing development being built a block and a half away. Is anyone interested in a conversation about how we might welcome our new neighbors?
Calling all visual artists! If you would like to be involved in creating art for our worship space, please contact Pastor Greg (Pastor@UniLu.Church). We welcome creativity, vision, and manual labor!
Pastor is thinking of starting a Bible Study in March. There is a small group of people already interested and, before we get too far, we’d like to know who else is interested so that we can together select a day and time. The idea right now is to use the Gospel of Matthew (the appointed Gospel for the liturgical year that began this Advent) as the basis of our study. Please contact Pastor Greg (Pastor@UniLu.Church) if you would like to be included in forming this Bible Study (though ALL will be welcome after it’s formed).
Sunday Morning Intercessor:
A key aspect of our communal worship is the time of congregational prayer – the thanksgivings, petitions, and intercessions that we offer every week. If you would like to take a leadership role in the crafting and leading of our prayers on Sunday morning, please contact Pastor Greg (Pastor@UniLu.Church) to find out more.
