Sermon Series from June 18 to July 16, 2017

Creation, Birth, Weaning, Rites of Passage, Legacy

"Over the next few weeks, we will be following some of the pillars of the Judeo-Christian tradition as they find themselves wrestling deeply with the reality of their humanity and the challenges it brings. We will listen with them as they hear astonishing news from God: news that brings immense joy, even as it precipitates painful separation. We will watch as a father makes a heart-wrenching decision about his son. We will bear witness to the stories of two mothers who must face the process of leave-taking by their children. And we will journey with a teenage girl and her female servants as she makes a life-changing decision about not just her future, but the future of God’s beloved community."  

from UMC Discipleship, Post-Pentecost Series

The Blessing of the Bikes

I would like to thank the members of the Portville Legion Motorcycle Group for suggesting this event, supporting it and attending it.  Attendance was less than what we prayed for but it is a beginning.  Next year's Blessing of the Bikes will be in May.  Please watch for posters and postings next year. 

Check out photos of the event under our photos tab.

The Youth Group did a great job keeping us hydrated and full. Thanks to Lorie for grilling the hot dogs and to Jen and Tadd for leading the youth this afternoon.  THANK YOU!!

This was the blessing that I offered and I offer it to you now:
May God bless you and keep you safe on this bike.  May you encounter the risen Lord in your travels, in the freedom of the open road, in the fellowship of other bikers and in each person you meet.  May the Lord be with you at home and on the road, and with you on your journeys.  May God’s mercy, grace and love shine upon you, now and forever.

To God be the Glory!
Pastor Clara
