Lesson Mark 4:1-9 and Deuteronomy 32:10-14
Message Images of God
I’ve noticed that since we’ve begun doing our service via live stream, that one of the things that’s been really important, has been to see one another. Our Palm Sunday and Easter “processionals” were simple, but many people have told me how much it meant to them to see others in the service. I’m excited as well to see art from people in the community. The colors and textures speak to who we are and help to connect us together.
Images are really important. So this week I wanted to try incorporating some things into the sermon that would be more visual. On Sunday, we’ll start a new series on images, starting with “Images of God”. The roots of our faith prohibits creating a “graven image” of God to worship, and instead the text presents a number of visceral and visual descriptions of who God is and how God acts in the world. We’ll look at the way that we piece these images of God together, and what they mean for us as people of faith. We’ll look at some paintings and photos along the way.

Grace and peace,
Classes are held on Sunday’s from 10:00am to 10:30am
This Sunday our Sunday school students will have another lesson via Zoom. (Reach out to Sheryl for meeting login information.) We are currently learning about a strong woman named Ruth. Anyone in grades pre-k-5th grade is welcome to join us.
If you have a youth who would like to have a ZOOM youth meeting, please contact me. I have lots of lessons we can enjoy.
I hope all are staying safe and healthy.
Online Worship Tech Issues
We will start our live streams about 10 minutes prior to the worship start time. During this moment you will hear silence, but see rotating pictures of art that our children and youth have made to share with us. Facebook is clearly having some issues keeping up with the demands of every congregation moving to worship online. Thanks for being patient during this time of sudden transition! Here are some tips if you’re having trouble:
First, try reducing the quality level in Facebook – On the video window highlight over the “resolution” along the bottom right corner of the video player to select a different bandwidth option. This may take a moment to update within your browser.
Next, you can also try using your phone instead. Some people have had more luck using the app than connecting on their computers.
If that doesn’t work, here are some other options:
1. Try a different internet browser (i.e. Chrome, Firefox, etc.) and also close unnecessary tabs on your browser.
2. Try updating your internet browser
3. Try restarting your computer
4. Try restarting your modem or router
5. Try updating your flash player
