Please join us for a beautiful Thanksgiving Feast on Sunday, November 16 following worship, so about noon in our Sheldon Jackson Fellowship Hall. I learned at the dinner following my installation service on Oct. 19 what a great meal this church puts on. (What a delight that was and necessary nutrition for our Presbytery Partners who had travelled from around the state to lead the service.) We all enjoy our own traditions on Thanksgiving Day, but this is also an important celebration to share with our church friends and family. Gratitude to God for all our blessings is a basic value for our church and this will be an opportunity to express that together. This will be a pot-luck dinner so bring a dish to share.
Come and experience a walking prayer. We have drawn a labrynth next to our building on Center St. It is available any time of day and at least until it is covered by snow. If you have not walked and prayed a labrynth before, you begin at the opening by the sidewalk. Start with a prayer for God’s presence with you as you walk. If there is something particular you want God to help you with hold that intention as you begin. Walk the labrynth meditatively. Take time to notice all that God is showing you as you proceed. Let all that has blocked you from knowing God’s guidance fall away from you as you walk. When you reach the center take time to recognize God with you, perhaps facing in each direction. As you walk out feel for God’s inspiration and growing direction. As you exit thank God for the prayer.
We are starting our fall schedule on Sunday September 7!
Our Sunday mornings begin at 9:30 with classes and discussion.
Children ages Kindergarten through 5th grade will meet together.
Adults will meet together and start with the book “Presbyterian Questions, Presbyterian Answers.” Bring your copy if you have it. If you don’t have a copy come and we will share.
Worship will be at 11:00. We will share the Lord’s Supper on this first Sunday of the month. The sermon will use Matthew 18: 15-20 to explore how people in the church respect and talk to each other.
Plan to join us for fellowship following worship.
On Sept. 7 we will have an event for youth at 1:00, pizza, fun, planning and more. Come and lets explore how you will be a faithful disciple in the coming year.
Union Presbyterian Church in Evanston Wyoming is beginning a new phase in our church life, and we’d like to share some of the highlights with our community.
We have a new pastor, the Rev. Larry E. Turpin, D.Min. Larry comes to us from Chicago and brings many spiritual and leadership gifts. Come hear him preach Sunday mornings at 10 am!
We have been making some major repairs to our building, which is the oldest building in Evanston, dating from the 19th century.
We are also renovating our Sunday School rooms after a flood. We hope to have everything done in time for our first classes of the year on September 14. 2014.
