Compelled by God's amazing love as shown throught the gift of Jesus Christ, Neland Church is called to live faithfully by building Christ-centered relationships that disciple and encourage all his people, as we worship, serve, and grow in this place.
Sunday at Neland – February 14, 2016
10 AM - On this first Sunday of Lent, we open our hearts, we open our minds,to new possibilities. We turn our eyes toward Jesus and his wondrous love. Like Peter, Jesus sets us in his sights, and we hear two things: an invitation and a promise. Will we risk it? Are we willing to follow? Pastor Joel will begin our Lenten series, “Growing with Peter”; he’ll be preaching from John 1:35-42. We will also celebrate the Lord’s Supper.
11:20 – 12:10 All Church School and catechism classes will meet. Lent/Easter choir will rehearse in the sanctuary. Adult Education will meet in the Activity Center. Andrea Lubberts, Program Assistant with Plaster Creek Stewards, will introduce Plaster Creek and the work of Reconciliation Ecology being done for the watershed through research, education and hands-on restoration work. We will look at the issues of environmental justice, upstream-downstream relationships and the restoration work in progress in our tributary, Silver Creek.
5 PM - We gather to worship God, to hear the powerful stories of the Gospel, and to bring the joys and concerns of people here and around the world before God.
We welcome Paul Kortenhoven to share missionary stories with us this evening. Paul and his family served in Nigeria and Sierra Leone for 30 years and remain closely connected to their former neighbors and colleagues there.
Our offering will be for Oakdale Neighbors, a Christian community development organization. Its goal is to create a neighborhood of grace and vitality by discovering, developing, and connecting skills and resources.
