2nd Sunday of Lent
“Not An Easy Choice” by Rev. Doug Gebhard, Interim Pastor
Liturgy & Music: [Download Here]
Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16 / Mark 8:31-38
An old couple (Abram and Sarai) are to have children in their old age and have their names changed. Peter is called Satan by Jesus because he doesn’t understand true discipleship. One name change is a sign of holy transformation while the other a sign or earthly confusion. Choosing to be faithful isn’t easy.

“The Rainbow Connection”
Genesis 9:8-17 / Mark 1:9-15

Covenant… a word not much used today. We understand what a contract is: legal agreement between two parties. We often make promises to others… and just as often break them. But Covenant? God made a covenant to never again destroy the earth. That covenant with humankind meant that we humans have an obligation in this agreement to hold up our end of the covenant: care for Creation. How’s that going?
March 7 @ 10:00 am
The commandments are more than laws; they established and maintained a community of faith during their journey from enslavement to freedom. The Exodus reading details the first ten of those ordinances. In the John reading, Jesus gets in real hot water for challenging the economics of the Temple “exchange system” where Temple attendees needed to purchase animals as offering. What is worship? Where do we worship? What commandments do we follow?
